Let's Get the Malawi 7s Rugby Team to the Africa Championships

Let's Get the Malawi 7s Rugby Team to the Africa Championships

Personal message

We are making an attempt to develop and grow rugby in Malawi after coming across a dynamic team with an electrifying passion for rugby. Despite coming from disadvantaged backgrounds, having to share kits, boots and even playing without mouthguards, these young men play like champions! 

Week after week, game after game, these players show up and play their hearts out with their families and friends cheering them on.

We are proud to be mentoring such talented and positive individuals who take such pride in developing their skills on and off the field.

We have set up this crowdfunding campaign to appeal to the public to help us raise funds to purchase new rugby kits for our team, so they can compete in Maseru and Lusaka in September and the Africa Champs in October with pride. Donations will also allow us to cover our travel costs for these 3 events.

Meeting these skilled players and being welcomed into their community has given me a new sense of passion and it's given me a new purpose. 

Please join us in supporting these young men and share their story with your networks. Share this post.

For any donation above US$60 we will send you a jersey, and if you donate more than US$100 we will get the team to sign it as well.
For Queries please email: janoos7@googlemail.com. (Click here to view Jerseys)

Malawi 7s Rugby Team

 Malawi 7s Rugby Team Logo

We are making an attempt to develop and grow rugby in Malawi. We have secured invitations to 7s competitions in Maseru and Lusaka in September, and are hoping to make it to the Africa Champs in October.
