Teddy Omondi, former international of the Kenya 7’s National Rugby Team and professional Rugby player and coach in France over 10 years talks to us this week about The Ministry of Rugby France and the upcoming Paris Sevens.
Tell us a little bit about The Ministry of Rugby.
The Ministry of Rugby is a Global Network of Rugby supporters founded in Kenya in 2009 after the Rugby World Cup in Dubai. The network has grown over the years to as far as Uganda, South Africa, Dubai, Australia, USA, UK and now France.
Last year, people couldn’t stop talking about Paris Sevens! How did you manage to give people this unforgettable experience?
Last year the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Leg returned to France after 10 years of World Rugby Sevens in Scotland. Paris was painted Red, Green, Black and White as Kenyans and friends of Kenya travelled from all corners of the world to breathe some renowned rugby cheer for our much loved Shujaa Boys. Thanks to a partnership with the French Rugby Federation, it was possible to have the Kenyan fans in one stand. People were also able to access packages, merchandise and after parties through a one stop service. Most of those who were present were already planning a return trip at the end of that memorable weekend.
What’s in store for rugby supporters this year?
This year we have yet again planned an exciting package for Kenyans in the diaspora and those intending to make the trip from the motherland. The package includes accommodation, stadium tickets, and club entry to the after parties. This can be purchased as packages and or as individual items by clicking on the link below.
Paris has made its mark in the Kenyan Rugby Calendar (13th-14th May 2017) as a must visit thanks to the team in France who ensure that you are well catered for and feel at home in this wonderful city and potentially the home for #2023RWC.
