This means that Puressentiel will be associated with a large number of major tournaments, including the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series, the Women’s Rugby World Cup 2017 and the World Rugby U20 Championship.

As Marco Pacchioni, the Founder and President of Puressentiel, explained: “It is a natural fit for Puressentiel to partner with World Rugby. For Puressentiel, sport and any type of athletic achievement create a real philosophy of life. They embody the strong values of the brand such as the desire to excel, efficacy, engagement and, of course, performance in its purest form! Our medical teams will be working with the masseurs-physiotherapists, coaches and trainers on the Rugby World Cup medical staff and we will also be supplying products to all the affiliated teams involved in World Rugby. We are convinced that our Joints and Muscles range will be of particular interest to players looking for a natural alternative to soothe and calm the aches and pains associated with this sport. We are also very keen to raise our profile in Asia, and the next Rugby World Cup will ensure optimum visibility for us in the land of the Rising Sun. We are delighted to celebrate the excitement and enjoyment of a new World Cup with supporters from all over the world”.

All these great champions are ambassadors for Puressentiel, but most of all they are users of the brand.

Bernard Lapasset, World Rugby Chairman, is also very pleased about this new partnership: “We are delighted to welcome Puressentiel, as a first-time official sponsor, into the big Rugby World Cup family.
