GoPlay Tours Announces Partnership with Charles River Rugby Football Club

GoPlay Tours, a division of ACIS, is pleased to announce its sponsorship of Charles River Rugby Football Club, beginning with the 2017 spring season. “GoPlay Tours is committed to building its brand via engagement with dynamic, forward-thinking organizations.” said Business Development Manager Marc Amigone, “As the only Boston-based rugby club with both men’s and women’s sides, Charles River is uniquely positioned to be effective brand ambassadors for the company. We look forward to helping them build on the club’s over 40-year legacy; and as they take rugby’s message of teamwork, inclusivity, and community to new frontiers.”

“We are excited and proud to have GoPlay Tours onboard as a corporate sponsor for Charles River,” said Alex Zadel, Charles River Women’s President. “Whenever you have a company that wants to affiliate its brand with your club it serves as a testament to both the value of what has been built and also the faith that members of the business community have that they will be well-represented on and off the field. We look forward to marking this as the beginning of a long and mutually beneficial relationship.”

Founded in 1973, the Charles River Rugby Football Club, affectionately dubbed “The Rats”, was formed by a group of rugby players from Tufts University and the Boston Rugby Football Club. In striking green and orange jerseys that quickly became the club’s trademark, the Rats achieved many early successes, including winning the Portland RFC Invitational and advancing to the Annual New England Tournament semifinals. The Rats continued to attract new players and build on each year’s accomplishments over the next decade, thus solidifying themselves as a fixture in the New England rugby community.

In 2005, the Rats added to their pack with the formation of their Charles River Women’s team. Since their founding, the Lady Rats have grown quickly over their first decade, gathering new players and skill, while keeping the same “serious but don’t take ourselves too seriously” River mantra. The ladies advanced to the USA Rugby playoffs in 2014 and 2015, finishing in the top 16 in the country in 2015.

Charles River Rugby Football Club is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization.
