1895 International, the fund-raising group that recently provided financial assistance to the successful Mediterranean Cup in Lebanon, has put its support behind the West Indies Rugby League Federation (WIRLF) for the 2004 season.
The support, which will include financial assistance to the WIRLF, will go a long way to helping the organisation achieve the goals of its recently-released strategic plan, including participating in the Middlesex 9's in July and plans for fund raising events during the year.
"When taking a sport to a new region, it is important to have partners who can offer you a range of assistance and expertise," Commented WIRLF Operations Manager, Dane Campbell. "1895 International offers both those qualities to the WIRLF and we welcome their involvement throughout 2004 and beyond."
"We look forward to forming a long term relationship with 1895 International, kicking off with the Rugby League Nine's Grand Prix in Britain this Summer"
Since being established at Huddersfield's historic George Hotel in August 2003, 1895 International has already made a significant impact on the international Rugby League arena, and their support to the development of the game in the West Indies is appreciated by all those involved in the WIRLF and supporters of international rugby league.
