The owner and chairman of this team James Kennedy has aimed to embrace New York by making their team colors to be the same as the state colors and also by naming their team “Rugby United New York”.
James Kennedy spoke about his team and created sports news headlines. He spoke about how he faced numerous challenges to create and bring this team to the Major League Rugby.
Challenges faced by the team and Kennedy
New York which is known as a city that never sleeps, is a huge city as compared to others but lacks in the field of sports. The other states in America such as Boston, Seattle and Philadelphia are great sports cities as compared to New York. This itself was a major difficulty as they had to do publicity stunts and shoots in every corner to create awareness among the younger generation and by making their team's name visible in the latest sports news.
Rugby is a game, which involves outdoor training. Kennedy shared another problem that was faced by the players during a nighttime training session, which was the temperature in the night fell to -20°C and there was no indoor facility available for the players. Kennedy included that for the first time it was okay but for the next season he will have to build an academy with an indoor facility.
He chose some big stars such as Foden and Chris Whyles, so that the younger players looked upon them as inspiration and they can coach them.
Kennedy adds on and tells the media that the players are very enthusiastic and foresee themselves to the next season as well as the third of the MLR. He created sports breaking news by telling the media that there are plans to spread rugby across the states.
He says he and his team plans to move forward with taking lessons from the other sports teams about how to speak to the media and create sports news headlines and how to market their team in the Major League Rugby.
Rugby United New York has to be competitive and has to create entertainment for its viewers. And if everything goes according to Kennedy's ambitious plans, it will sure be on the latest sports news in no time.
