The Confederation of African Rugby (CAR) has announced the launch of its official website, www.confederation-africaine-rugby.com.
All six of the Regional Associations of the IRB now have their own websites, providing Rugby fans with all the information they need on competitions and initiatives in their respective continents.
Available in both English and French, the CAR website marks a giant step forward in the promotion and development of the Game of Rugby in Africa.
All stakeholders in African Rugby - Unions, clubs, coaches, referees, players and supporters - as well as international followers of Africa's growing Rugby scene, can access key information such as competition schedules and results.
The website offers each of the 36 rugby-playing countries within Africa the opportunity to showcase their initiatives, while also fostering the understanding of the CAR collective.
In addition, the website offers up to date resources such as training manuals and educational documents.
