Cape Town - UTi, one of the world’s leading supply chain and logistics management companies, was on Friday unveiled as a major sponsor of the rapidly growing Cape Town Tens rugby event. UTi’s partnership with Tens covers a number of VIP and rugby elements - including brand ownership of the event VIP hospitality area, as well as naming rights to the prestigious veterans division.

As part of the sponsorship, UTi has also become the official logistics partner of the event and will provide free delivery of playing kit to participating teams, who have purchased apparel through BLK - the official apparel provider to Cape Town Tens.

Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at UTi, Paul Marshall commented, “Tens is a growing South African rugby brand that shares many common values with our organization, including passion, team work and camaraderie, all in a high quality event environment.
UTi also shares Tens’ innovative approach and ambition. We are extremely excited to be involved in helping deliver an event that marks the opening of the Southern Hemisphere rugby season.”

Launched in 2009, by rugby legends, Bob Skinstad and Robbie Fleck, the
Cape Town Tens is now the biggest ten-a-side tournament in world rugby. The Cape Town Tens is a unique sports lifestyle event that provides a winning formula of rugby, sunshine, banter, beer and live entertainment to more than 2 000 players and 12 000 spectators over two days.

Bob Skinstad added, “We are delighted to welcome such a prestigious global company to the Tens family of partners. The Cape Town Tens is now the biggest social event in SA rugby and more and more brands are keen to get involved. As professional rugby has become more serious, Tens has filled a gap by focusing on the fun and social aspects of our great sport. This is the first of a number of sponsorship announcements that will be made in the coming weeks and months.” 

Now in its sixth year, Cape Town Tens will take place at Hamilton’s Rugby Club, on Friday, February 7 and Saturday, February 8, 2014 with more than 90 teams set to take part. The event will also feature live entertainment, rugby development clinics, Springbok and international legends and South Africa’s biggest beer tent. The Cape Town Tens was recently short-listed as a finalist in the Best Live Experience category of the upcoming Discovery Sports Industry Awards.
