MEAT UNDERWEAR and the LOS ANGELES REBELLION RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB are excited to launch an official partnership to promote equality and inclusivity in athletics. The partnership kicks off in October 2019 and includes production of a 2020 Rebellion Rugby X MEAT Calendar, Co-branded rugby-themed and Team Apparel and an outreach campaign featuring players from the Rebellion.
Founded in 2001, the LOS ANGELES REBELLION dedicated to promoting inclusivity through the sport of rugby. As a member of the International Gay Rugby (IGR) association, the Rebellion embodies the fearless rugby spirit, welcoming all players regardless of age, ethnicity, religion, fitness level, sexual identity or gender expression. Their 2019-20 season includes weekly athletic training, competitive matches within the Southern California Rugby Football Union (SCRFU), community outreach, and will culminate at the 2020 IGR Bingham Cup in Ottawa, Canada.
MEAT UNDERWEAR, based in Los Angeles, is fast establishing themselves as the “rebel” in the athletic apparel industry. Designing products that showcase the spirit of provocativeness and elimination of conventional barriers. MEAT Underwear celebrates inclusiveness for all, body positivity and individual uniqueness.
“It is truly an honor for us to partner with the Los Angeles Rebellion. This collaboration is a great match between two strong teams who both firmly believes in challenging the social norm and embracing inclusiveness,” says Cong Wang, Creative Director of MEAT UNDERWEAR. “We believe, with us teaming up, we will bring big surprises to both the rugby sports and athletic apparel communities.”
“Partnerships with progressive brands such as MEAT Underwear are vital to the inclusion movement”, says Eric Anderson, President of the Los Angeles Rebellion. “No matter who you are, how you identify, or who you love, there is a place for everyone in inclusive rugby.”
Proceeds from this partnership will support the Rebellion’s mission and their participation in the 2020 IGR Bingham Cup.
