The West Indies Rugby Union is pleased to announce the renewal of sponsorship for the Rugby West Indies Sevens Team from Butterfield Bank (Cayman) Limited and Guyana Telephone & Telegraph Co. Ltd.(GT&T). The funding will go toward ongoing participation in international competitions, including the 2009 International Rugby Board (iRB) Sevens World Series.



Butterfield Bank's Monique Bush commented, "We are proud to offer continued support to our West Indies team. We hope that with Butterfield's funding they will have the opportunity to participate in more tournaments, gaining valuable experience and exposure. As they grow in popularity, we hope that their successes will encourage youth throughout the Caribbean to get more involved in the sport."



President of the West Indies Rugby Union Kit Nascimento expressed his gratitude to Butterfield Bank and GT&T for their continued interest and support to the progress and development of the sport in the West Indies. “Although Rugby West Indies was still in its development stage, the team had demonstrated its potential to compete on the world stage and with generous corporate support we can take the West Indies game to the highest level of Sevens rugby," he added.
