Vientiane, August 2019:
The Lao Rugby Federation (LRF) is pleased to announce Leo and Maeve Madden as the player sponsors of Nithnoy "Nit" Phommachith.
Nit started her rugby career as a Champa Ban powered by ChildFund Pass It Back player. Since her debut in 2017, speedster Nit Phommachith has represented Laos at the Asia Rugby 7s Trophy, the Southeast Asian Games, and the Youth Olympic Games Qualifiers. Nit is a member of the Vientiane Lions, one of the Women Rugby Clubs in Vientiane, Laos. This season, Nit participated in the Kowloon RugbyFest in Hong Kong as part of the DAC Lao Nagas, where she and her team earned the title of Cup Runners-Up!
The Maddens’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. and Ms. Madden for their generosity in sponsoring Nit. 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.
