FM Outsource are proud to announce their sponsorship of this year’s Sevens and the City Festival. Now in its fourth year, the event hosted at Allianz Park, North London is set to be bigger and better than ever before.
The weekend hosted by Saracens legends Matt Stevens and David Strettle was first hosted in 2014 and has grown from strength to strength. Football, cricket, and dodgeball have been added to the roster of sports this year, and the social rugby 7's teams will get even more play time in the Premiership rugby stadium.
It was recently announced that a host of former international rugby stars, including Matt Stevens, David Strettle, Iain Balshaw, Danny Grewcock, Mark Cueto, and Ugo Monye, will play in a special event. The all-star game will kick off proceedings on Friday, 30th June and is raising awareness for the #LiftTheWeight mental health campaign.
“One in four people in the UK will be affected by mental health issues this year, and sportsmen and women are no different,” said Stevens, “many will suffer with these problems during and after their careers and Restart Rugby’s #LiftTheWeight campaign gives invaluable support and encouragement to players to access expertise and share the burden.”
FM Outsource are thrilled to be supporting such a wonderful cause on top of what looks to be jam-packed weekend of sport, food, and drink. If you're interested in attending this year’s event, please visit their website: https://sevensandthecity.com
