IRB submits application for .Rugby Domain
The International Rugby Board (IRB) announced recently that it is applying to ICANN for .Rugby generic top-level domain name.
IRB Chairman Bernard Lapasset said: “With an 18 per cent increase in participation over the last four years we now have more than 5.5 million players participating across 117 countries affiliated to the IRB. Rugby is engaging with more men, women and children than ever before while the profile and commercial reach of the sport continues to go from strength to strength.”
“This application is for the Rugby family and underscores our continued commitment to protecting and promoting Rugby’s values and ethos. It is our ambition to ensure that the .RUGBY domain resides within the sport in order that all involved in Rugby can benefit.”
