Cuisine Solutions Has Renewed Its Role As The Presenting Sponsor Of Old Glory DC Through 2022

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — (Washington, DC – March 22, 2021) – Cuisine Solutions, the world’s leading manufacturer and distributor of sous-vide foods, has renewed its role as the Presenting Sponsor of Old Glory DC through 2022.

The agreement extends the reach of the Cuisine Solutions brand with a dedicated rugby audience both domestically and internationally. Additionally, the agreement pairs two organizations that share strong commitments to growing the game of rugby in the Mid-Atlantic at all levels, including professional, grassroots, and youth.

“We’ve said it before, and it’s still true – Cuisine Solutions is the best corporate partner in professional rugby,” said Old Glory Chairman Chris Dunlavey.  “As international culinary artists, they bring a level of sophisticated style, flavor, and fun to every event we share with them.  They understand and love rugby as much as we do, with all the culture and tradition that goes with it.”

Since the partnership initiation during Old Glory’s 2019 exhibition season, Cuisine Solutions has become an integral part of Old Glory’s professional footprint. As Old Glory’s presenting partner, Cuisine Solutions will continue to have its logo prominently featured on the front of Old Glory DC’s home and away jerseys, throughout Segra Field for Old Glory home games, and on all of the team’s marketing and media assets.  Additionally, Cuisine Solutions will enjoy other promotional opportunities such as hospitality accommodations at game day events and visibility through the team’s broadcast, print, and social media outreach. 

Cuisine Solutions is excited to continue our support of Old Glory for the upcoming 2021 season,” said Cuisine Solutions Chairman and Founder Stanislas Vilgrain. “The constant commitment of Old Glory to the values of the game along with the support of youth rugby in the Washington, DC area is exactly what we are looking for in this partnership. Our organizations share a commitment to teamwork, hard work and a relentless passion for excellence in execution!”

Old Glory DC will play eight home regular-season matches at Segra Field beginning the weekend of March 27. The season will culminate with the MLR Championship match on August 1.
