In another clear demonstration of its commitment to sport, NEW GPC INC. paid tribute to Guyana’s national Men’s rugby team, the Guyana Jaguars, who won the North America and Caribbean Rugby Association’s (NACRA) 15th title in Atlanta, USA.
NEW GPC INC. honored the ruggers for their outstanding performance after defeating USA South Panthers 30-27 in overtime in the NACRA final on June 28 2014.
NEW GPC INC, an avid supporter of rugby and sport in general, is among a group of sponsors who have faithfully backed the efforts of the Guyana Rugby Football Union (GRFU).
Marketing Manager of NEW GPC INC, Trevor Bassoo, delivering remarks at the function, said the company’s involvement in rugby goes way beyond providing sponsorship.
“We have been doing this in several forms. Some of the players are employees of the company or the group of companies and we’ve done our part in granting the necessary time off and other incentives necessary. We’re always on board when it comes to supporting these guys; we know they have what it takes to be winners, because they are winners,” Bassoo remarked.
NEW GPC’s Marketing Manager used the opportunity to publicly congratulate the ruggers, who rebounded from trailing 8-24 at halftime to level the game at 27-all at the end of fulltime before breaking the deadlock in overtime.
NEW GPC INC. presented hampers to each member of the team, while thanking them for putting Guyana on the rugby map.
NEW GPC INC has been a strong advocate of sport and its development over the years, as is evident in its title sponsorship of the Caribbean Premier League T20 tournament under its popular Limacol brand.
