Company committed to growing the game of rugby in D.C. Metro Area
FAIRFAX, Va. — January 19, 2023 — ECS, a leader in advanced technology, science, and digital transformation solutions, extends its sponsorship with Old Glory DC, Washington D.C.’s professional rugby team, through the 2023 Major League Rugby (MLR) Season.
ECS joins the Old Glory DC family through the company’s acquisition of Iron Vine Security which has been a premier sponsor of Old Glory since their first exhibition matches in 2019. As one of the team’s founding partners, ECS will have its logo prominently featured on the back of Old Glory DC’s jerseys and work with Old Glory DC as they grow the game of rugby in the local community and nationwide.
ECS will also take over as the title sponsor of Old Glory DC’s Shield Series, an invitational tournament organized in coordination with Young Glory, the official pathway program of Old Glory DC Rugby Football Club. The tournament will feature a series of collegiate matches held before Old Glory DC home games, aimed at growing the game of rugby in the Mid-Atlantic and highlighting the regional talent that could be heading to Major League Rugby in the future.
“We’re excited to partner with Old Glory DC,” said John Heneghan, president of ECS. “Old Glory DC is a fantastic partner, dedicated to on-field excellence and growing the game of rugby in our area. We’re proud to support an organization that shares our drive, values, and commitment to the local community. Up The Flags!”
