Emirates NBD are new sponsors of Dubai Exiles.

Byline: Staff Report

Dubai Dubai Exiles, where the Sevens started 40 years ago, have announced a major sponsorship that they hope will go a long way to securing the future development of the club.

Emirates NBD are the iconic Dubai rugby club's new main sponsor, an arrangement that Exiles Chairman Jonathan Brookes says will give his club a huge boost to realising the well known rugby organisation's bold vision. "We at Exiles started things like the Dubai Sevens from very humble beginnings 40 years ago and now look at what it has mushroomed into. Likewise, initiatives such as the development of our Junior section which has 500 players, and our commitment to make rugby more accessible to Emiratis, are programmes which, thanks to Emirates NBD sponsorship, should develop in the same way as the Dubai Sevens has and be a hugely successful part of regional rugby in the future" said Brookes.

Rick Pudner, CEO of Emirates NBD, said: " We are delighted to be main sponsor of the oldest and most established rugby club in the region. The Exiles have grown over the past 40 years alongside Dubai and formed an active and essential part of Dubai's sporting community."
