Rugby 7’s friendly match was arranged between India and Sri Lanka in India for two days led by Japan Overseas Cooperation. Different Volunteers came from both Rugby Football Unions to join the event. In addition to promoting friendship and goodwill between athletes from both countries, this event aimed to strengthen and popularize rugby in both countries and to foster youth development through international cooperation.

In addition to conducting friendly matches for teams led by JICA volunteers, we gave presentations and discussions on training methods and rugby clinics in relation to ensuring safety during game play. Efforts to strengthen rugby and promote healthy youth development were spread through rugby.

Comment from Mr. Nasser Hussain, General Manager, Indian Rugby Football Union:
I am honored to be able to host an event with a very unique concept of an international friendly match for a rugby team led by JICA volunteers. In line with our focus goal of the Indian Rugby Football Union to strengthen male and female youth players, we were able to provide a friendly and safe environment for all participants, even though they fight in teams. Thanks to the efforts of JICA volunteers, it was a unique opportunity to see the current state of rugby in both countries.
