Packaging Solutions

Smurfit Kappa was the Platinum sponsor for this year’s International Mixed Ability Rugby Tournament (IMART) in Musgrave Park, Cork. To further support the group wide sponsorship, Smurfit Kappa UK reached out to our UK teams offering additional support for many of the participating teams.

The largest international mixed ability rugby tournament to date, this year’s IMART took place between the 5 and the 10 of June. The incredible event had 28 teams from over 15 countries participating, and for the first time, four women’s teams competed in the 28 team tournament. Huge congratulations are in order to Sunday Well Rebels and El Salvador after they triumphed to win the men’s and women’s IMART World Cup, respectively. El Salvador etched their name in the history books as the inaugural IMART Women’s World Cup winners.

Smurfit Kappa Beacon, Smurfit Kappa Chesterfield and Display UK were given the opportunity to link up with some of the UK teams prior to the tournament. Smurfit Kappa Beacon was on hand to give out goodie bags and water bottles to the Surrey Chargers squad while Display UK did the same with local team Bumble Bees RUFC and Smurfit Kappa Chesterfield general manager Alex Bissett lent his support to the Derby Bucks team during a pre-tournament training session.

Other teams who received support from the Smurfit Kappa UK family included Halifax Magpies, Worcester RFS, Longlevens Mixed Ability RFC, Rhyfelwyr Llanelli Warriors, Swansea Gladiators, and Edinburgh Rugby MA.

General manager of Smurfit Kappa Beacon, Steve Burns, said: ‘Smurfit Kappa Beacon is pleased to have been able to support local UK team the Surrey Chargers in this year's tournament. Inclusion and diversity is something we are extremely passionate about. Huge congratulations to both winning teams, El Salvador and Sunday Well Rebels. We can’t wait for next year’s tournament.’
