Great Britain Announce BitMEX as Lead Partner of World Cup Campaign
Great Britain Tag Rugby is excited to announce BitMEX as Lead Partner of the 2018 Tag World Cup campaign taking place in Australia from 1st-4th November 2018.
BitMEX, established in 2014 is a peer-to-peer trading platforms offering leveraged contracts that are bought and sold in Bitcoin.
BitMEX will be supporting all 20 players, their head coaches and assistant coaches in each of the four Tag Rugby World Cup squads travelling to Australia on their quest to compete at the very pinnacle of the sport both on and off the field. BitMEX will also support the British & Irish Cup to be played in Dublin on 8th & 9th September 2018.
Try Tag Rugby, official delegate to the International Tag Federation engaged with BitMEX early in 2018 to establish a partnership with the Great Britain Tag Rugby squads heading to Australia later this year.
Supporting growth in sport, particularly sport that is all-inclusive and played in both a mixed gender and single gender format resonates particularly well with the co-founders of BitMEX. Coupled with the opportunity to further establish a platform for players that have come from all codes of rugby to now focus on Tag Rugby as their primary code creates a fantastic opportunity for BitMEX to engage with their potential clients.
"With adult Tag Rugby growing at an unprecedented rate both across the UK and globally, the announcement of this partnership with BitMEX takes Great Britain's representation at the World Cup to a level befitting of the players currently active in this great rugby sporting nation,” said Great Britain World Cup Program Director Toby Hartley.
“It goes without saying that BitMEX has established a platform and offers an enviable springboard to establish Tag Rugby in Great Britain as one of the foremost engaging, all-inclusive and growing codes of rugby available today."
