The new jersey will be worn by the All Blacks Sevens for the first tournament of the 2012/13 HSBC Sevens World Series tournament on the Gold Coast in Australia, October 13, in a game against the United States Eagle 7s. On the All Blacks jersey, AIG’s logo is just under one third the size of the maximum allowed under International Rugby Board guidelines, in consideration of the historical significance of that jersey.

This sponsorship solidifies AIG’s commitment to the sport of rugby. On October 2, 2012, AIG announced that it had entered into an agreement to become the official front-of-jersey sponsor for USA Rugby’s men’s and women’s Junior and Collegiate All-American teams. AIG will also work with USA Rugby to grow its Rookie Rugby “Rugby in a Box” youth developmental program, an assertion of the company’s commitment to grow the sport at every level around the world.
