Natixix Rugby Cup: an event to promote rugby in Asia

The goal of the Natixis Rugby Cup event supported by Natixis is to promote Rugby Union in Asia, specifically ahead of the 2019 World Cup in Japan.

Natixis, official partner of Racing Metro 92 since 2007, brought the team to Hong Kong last year for the inaugural match of the Natixis Rugby Cup. The team was taking on Stade Toulousain, another TOP-14 club.

This year, Natixis is organizing a match beween Racing Metro 92 and a local team, HKFC Rugby Section, of which it became the title sponsor recently.
