Akuma Sports announces 3-year partnership extension with Penn State Rugby

Following another successful year for Penn State Rugby, Akuma is delighted to announce a 3-year extension of our relationship with the Penn State Men’s and Women’s Rugby teams.  

Our partnership with the Penn State men’s and women’s rugby teams is something that we are incredibly proud of at Akuma. The influence that Penn State has had on the US game is demonstrated by the many Eagles that have passed through their rugby program and we’re excited that we can continue to offer our support to their teams as they develop future generations of American rugby stars. All of us at Akuma HQ wish the Penn State teams every success this coming season.”

Dan Aldersley, Akuma Director.

Responding, Men’s Head Coach Justin Hundley said, “We are excited to continue our relationship with Akuma. The quality and service they provided the last few years made it a no-brainer when it came to partnering with them for the next three years. I would strongly recommend Akuma to any program looking for high-quality gear with an even more impressive turnaround from consultation to design to delivery.”

For women’s Head Coach Kate Daley, the decision to continue working with Akuma was an easy one driven by our shared focus on the athlete. 

Akuma women’s cut jerseys are the first I’ve found that are the correct length in the torso and the circumference of their sleeves.  They are a comfortable size for all body shapes and retain their shape while scrummaging.  Equally, the shorts are a comfortable length for players in all positions and all rugby activities.  From a coach’s point of view, the quality and durability of the jerseys is high: they do not rip or hold dirt, coming spotlessly clean even after muddy games.  We are excited to work with Akuma in the future.  Their responsiveness, lead time and patience have been unparalleled.”

Kate Daley, Penn State Rugby Women’s Head Coach

With Penn State Rugby celebrating its 60th anniversary this October, we look forward to supporting both teams on and off the field as they celebrate this significant milestone. 

The Akuma team are very proud to be welcoming back Penn State University Rugby. We wish them luck for the year ahead, and we look forward to seeing further successes!

Welcome to the #AkumaFamily!
