The Lions Rugby Company (Pty) Ltd is proud to announce that Xerox has extended its title sponsorship for the next three years. This will take the Lions’ combined title sponsorships through to the end of 2019.

Xerox will remain an associate sponsor for Vodacom Super Rugby and their logo will appear on the back of the Emirates Lions jersey, while they also retain the title sponsorship for the Currie Cup teams. “Xerox and the Lions have had a long-standing partnership with these two entities first linking in 1993 and we are ecstatic to join hands for another three years,” Rudolf Straeuli, CEO of the Lions Rugby Company (Pty) Ltd said.

Xerox has not only invested in the professional leg of the Lions, but also in the future of the union through the inception of the Xerox Lions Learning Hub which we are unveiling here today.

The challenge has always been to ensure all players have the opportunity to further their education. The Union is already in partnerships with the University of Johannesburg and the University of Witwatersrand, however many players do not achieve the required entrance level and for many their priority lies in a professional rugby career. This challenge has led the Union together with Xerox to establish a new initiative, this will accommodate all players not attending tertiary institutions and aims to teach the player business skills and develop the player beyond the game.

By offering a SAQA accredited NQF level 4 certificate in Business Planning, the Xerox Lions Learning Hub offers professional players/athletes an opportunity to learn whilst playing rugby, thus a holistic approach to athlete development. “We started this program as there is a gap in the market to teach players all rounded skills whilst playing professional rugby,” Straeuli explained.

“We believe that this program will equip junior players with the skillset that they can use beyond their rugby career and offer players an opportunity to integrate their skills into the workplace with some of our strategic partners,” Straeuli concluded.
