World Cup Rugby Stars Open the Market

To mark the launch of the inaugural LSEG charity Mixed Touch Rugby Tournament this morning, London Stock Exchange welcomed world cup winning rugby stars Jason Leonard OBE and Margaret Alphonsi MBE to open trading.  

A big congratulations was extended to Margaret Alphonsi and the England Women’s Rugby Team for their recent success in lifting their World Cup on Sunday, 17 August 2014.  The Women’s World Cup trophy was at London Stock Exchange as part of England Women’s World Cup 10,000 Mile Trophy Tour. 

With England hosting the World Cup during 2015, London Stock Exchange has teamed up with the RFU London Legacy Group to stage the tournament at Allianz Park (home of Saracens) on 17th June 2015, with all proceeds going to LSEG Foundation.  Additionally, participating organisations are also being asked to get involved in the RFU’s All Schools programme which will allow them to partner with a school to take up rugby.
