Preparations for the events planned by the Azerbaijan Rugby Federation for the promotion and development of rugby in Azerbaijan in the 2022-2023 season have begun. Thus, a meeting was held between the officials of the Federation and the management of two private educational institutions operating in Baku.

The director of the European Azerbaijan School, Francesco Bankini, welcomed the initiative and said that his school would provide the necessary support for the development of rugby in our country.

Carl Lander, Director of the British College in Azerbaijan, said he had gained enough experience in popularizing and developing rugby among children in the UK and would work with the Federation to support our staff in the new academic year.

It should be noted that this practice has been successfully continued at TISA (The International School of Azerbaijan) for many years, and the team "TİSA Titans" of this school regularly participates in domestic and international tournaments.

Meetings will be held in several other secondary schools in the nearest future, and from September 2022 it is planned to organize rugby trainings in schools, form teams and hold various competitions. The goal is to further popularize this Olympic sport among children and teenagers, to form teams of our professional rugby clubs in the appropriate age category and to discover talented and promising players for the Azerbaijani national team among teenagers.

Together we will try to make Azerbaijani Rugby span>take its place in the Sports family
