Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 16, 2012
TST Media (http://tstmedia.com) today announced it has formed a partnership with the U.S. Rugby Super League (RSL), which has moved its website to TST Media’s NGIN (pronounced "engine") web site platform. The RSL (http://premier-rugby.com) continues to work with TST’s team of designers to improve the functionality and effectiveness of the RSL web site and overall rugby awareness.
"The Rugby Super League (RSL) web site had become obsolete, and our member teams decided it was time to catch up with the world of digital media," said Sean Kelly, RSL’s president. "Rugby is a fast-growing sport in the U.S. and, as such, good media outlets are needed to continue to push this growth. By partnering with TST Media, we felt building a new web site with state-of-the-art functionality would help highlight our sport, as well as the league itself. TST Media’s expertise in the sports industry makes it a good fit for the RSL and, given their passion and knowledge, we believe the firm will help us promote the league and continue to build the sport. RSL is excited with the launch of our new web site. We hope it will encourage more people to get involved with the sport of rugby, drive attendance to our exciting league matches, and further engage the entire community."
The U.S. Rugby Super League is organized and sanctioned by USA Rugby as the Premier Level of Men's Rugby in the USA. The RSL manages and operates the participating member clubs within the guidelines of the United States of America Rugby Football Union and is subject to the international laws of the game. Its 2012 season will showcase 10 teams competing in two conferences, with scheduled season play and two rounds of playoff games culminating in the Rugby Super League Championship match. The competition runs from mid-March to late May each year.
"We're honored to have been tapped to lead the digital charge for the Rugby Super League as it continues its explosive growth," said Carson Kipfer, TST Media CVO and co-founder. "Together, we will produce an authentic online rugby experience that builds brand awareness and encourages engagement. We look forward to working with the RSL as we continue to ensure the global sport of rugby grows here at home."
