Maples Group Sponsors Rugby Club Luxembourg, Fostering Shared Values of Excellence, Teamwork, and Community

23 Apr 2024

The Maples Group is pleased to announce its sponsorship of Rugby Club Luxembourg, the oldest and most successful rugby club in the country, solidifying its commitment to supporting local sports and fostering community engagement. 

The sponsorship will provide the club with crucial resources to purchase new equipment, enhance its programmes and promote the sport across the region. In addition, the sponsorship will also positively impact the club's long-standing involvement in community projects in Nairobi, Kenya, where it has been donating equipment, providing coaching and sponsoring children to play and study in Luxembourg since 2018. The Group's support will allow young people in Africa's largest township to participate in rugby programmes that aim to promote social inclusion, education, health and empowerment in disadvantaged communities.

Johan Terblanche, Managing Partner of Maples and Calder Luxembourg Sarl, the Maples Group’s law firm in Luxembourg, said: "We are delighted to sponsor Rugby Club Luxembourg. We are committed to fostering strong relationships and making a positive impact in the communities where we operate and we wish Rugby Club Luxembourg all the success, on and off the field, for the year ahead." 

Jorge Perez, Senior Vice President, Head of Fiduciary Services, Luxembourg, said: "Our commitment to supporting our local community and fostering a culture of teamwork, excellence and dedication aligns closely with the values of Rugby Club Luxembourg. We look forward to working closely with the club in making a positive impact in the Luxembourg community."

Paolo Tarakdjian, President of Rugby Club Luxembourg, shared his thoughts on the positive impact of having the Maples Group as a sponsor. He emphasised how the club has evolved from a group of mates playing rugby in a cow field to becoming the largest rugby club in Luxembourg. The partnership with the Maples Group not only provides financial support but also amplifies RCL’s success in both sporting projects as well as their community activities. Paolo appreciates the passion, respect, and camaraderie within the rugby community, and this sponsorship adds to the club’s growth and achievements.
