IRON VINE SECURITY RETURNS AS OLD GLORY DC FOUNDING PARTNER 2021 MLR SEASON
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — (Washington, DC – February 23rd, 2021) – Iron Vine Security, LLC, a DC-based cybersecurity company, has signed on to extend its role as a Founding Partner with Old Glory DC, Greater Washington’s professional rugby team, through the 2022 Major League Rugby Season. Iron Vine Security has been an original Founding Partner with the team since its four-match exhibition season in the Spring of 2019. The extended relationship will include involvement for Iron Vine Security in both Old Glory as a professional MLR team and in its academy and grassroots rugby programs at the youth through senior levels.
“Continuing our partnership with Old Glory DC was an easy decision for us,” said Jason Figley, Iron Vine Founding Partner. “It enables us to maintain our commitment to and investment in the local community and support an organization that shares our same purpose-driven values. As lifelong rugby players and fans, we understand the skill and dedication the game requires—teamwork, resilience, the ability to seize opportunities—many of the same skills needed to be a cybersecurity professional. We’re looking forward to watching Old Glory pick up where they left off last season!”
As Founding Partner, Iron Vine Security will have its logo prominently featured on the back of Old Glory DC’s jerseys, below the numbers. In addition to the jersey placement, Iron Vine Security will enjoy other promotional opportunities throughout the 2021 MLR season, such as hospitality accommodations at game day events and visibility through the team’s broadcast, print, and social media outreach. Additionally, as an Academy/Grassroots Partner, Iron Vine will maintain a visible presence on the kit and venue signage of Old Glory’s U19 Academy players and among the jerseys and at the tournaments of youth programs throughout the Greater Washington region.
“Iron Vine Security has been by our side since we started this organization,” said Chris Dunlavey, Chairman of Old Glory D.C., “and they have been the best partners we could have imagined, every step of the way. They understand our commitment to rugby values, to our home region of Greater Washington, and our drive to grow the game. They see the connections to where they are driving their own business in service to their many clients who in turn serve our country. We genuinely hope we can continue to grow this mutually beneficial partnership forever.”
Old Glory DC is slated to play two preseason matches at The St. James on February 26th and March 5th and eight home regular-season matches at Segra Field beginning the weekend of March 27th. The season will culminate with the MLR Championship match on August 1st.
