Vientiane, August 2019:
The Lao Rugby Federation (LRF) is pleased to announce Kevin Knox, Jr. as the player sponsor of Khampaseuth "Bo" Sihalath.
Bo is a member of the Canon Vientiane Tigers Rugby Club and was awarded the LRF’s 2018 Men’s Player of the Year. In addition to playing with the Tigers, Bo is a Champa Ban powered by ChildFund Pass It BackCoach, and is representing Laos as part of the DAC Lao National Team at the 2019 Asia Rugby 7s Trophy. This past season Bo served as captain of the DAC Lao Nagas during Kowloon RugbyFest.
Mr. Knox’s support comes as part of the LRF’s Player Sponsorship Initiative, which grants businesses and individuals the opportunity to sponsor players and staff as they represent Laos at elite international competitions. Since its inception in 2010, the Player Sponsorship Initiative has made it possible for the Men’s and Women’s Lao National Teams to travel and compete at the international level.
The Lao Rugby Federation would like to extend its appreciation to Mr. Knox for his generosity in sponsoring Bo. The continued dedication of our Player Sponsors alongside the tremendous support of our Elite and Platinum Sponsors, DAC Management, allows the Lao elite program to grow and reach increasing success at international competitions.
