Celebrating the Centenary – Akuma Sports x Guildford RFC

“On 30th September 1922, 15 eager chaps from Guildford took on 15 more from Dorking at Stoke Hill farm in the first Rugby Match to be played by Guildford RFC.” 

There is some great news coming out of Guildford this season, with the members of Guildford RFC celebrating their centenary this 2022-23 season. A huge success for any team, Akuma is thrilled not only to be congratulating Guildford RFC on this milestone but also to announce our partnership with the club.

As part of our partnership celebration, Akuma director Lawrence Dallaglio made the trip to Guildford earlier this month to congratulate the club and to present them with their centenary shirt featuring their altered, celebratory logo.

“It is always great to see clubs reaching milestones like Guildford as these clubs are a huge part of the community. It was great to visit Guildford RFC and present them with their centenary shirt and share in their celebrations. I want to personally welcome the club to the Akuma Family and wish them all the best for the coming season.”

Lawrence Dallaglio, Akuma Director of Business Development.

Commercial director of Guildford RFC, Darren O’Reilly, added: “Guildford RFC are thrilled to partner Akuma for their 100th year and have chosen a supplier who not only has a high-quality product range but our joint online Shop can be accessed by ALL our members – allowing us to focus on the Rugby side of the business.”

The Akuma team at HQ are thrilled to be welcoming the club to the Akuma Family, and all wish the team a successful centenary year. We look forward to seeing the many successes the club will find in this coming year.

Welcome to the #AkumaFamily!
