Rugby Ethos

Rugby values humility, integrity, character, and teamwork. Rugby players embody this ethos on and off the pitch. Similarly, Iron Vine values these attributes in our cybersecurity experts. Like rugby, we look for individuals who are passionate, focused, and want to be part of something larger than themselves. Given our history of supporting the local rugby community, when we were presented with the opportunity to support DC’s first professional rugby team, we didn’t have to think twice.

As a founding sponsor, our logo is featured on the back of the home and alternate jerseys as well as other promotional opportunities within the team’s media reach. While Major League Rugby has cancelled the 2020 season due to COVID-19, we are looking forward to 2021 season. After roaring out of the gates in their inaugural season, going 4-1, OGDC is poised for even greater success in 2021, and we can’t wait!

“We’re excited to be part of the OGDC family and the team’s inaugural Major League Rugby season. It was an easy choice to continue our support for a team that shares a similar purpose-driven culture. We wish OGDC’s players and management the best of luck and look forward to cheering them on this season”
