The Malta Rugby League (MRL) and Time International (Sports) Ltd. ,through its franchise Urban Jungle, have announced a three year deal that sees the sportswear supplier become the national team's official technical partner until the end of 2014.

National team players paraded the new Nike kit design at Tigne as officials announced the team would take on Denmark at home this summer.

Urban Jungle's Sales Manager, Michael Naudi spoke of Urban Jungle's commitment to the national team that boasts an international ranking of 20th in the world.

"We are stocking the Malta Rugby league National Team kit across all our outlets including the vital Malta International Airport sales point. We have watched the progress of the Malta Rugby League very carefully and are proud to support their development of the 13-man rugby code" said Mr. Naudi.

Malta dual rugby international Matthew Von Brockdorff said the partnership was a great boost for Maltese rugby league despite the island's issues with facilities.

"As a player, it's great to see brands like Urban Jungle and Nike involved with rugby. We've achieved some great results and such brands investing in the sport is a show of solidarity for the continued rugby league development on the Maltese islands" said the 23-year-old rugby player from Swieqi.

"The sport has activity across schools, tag, academy, mens, ladies and wheelchair rugby league across both Malta and Gozo, this association with Urban Jungle now presents a great opportunity for supporters to jump on board with the Malta Knights"

"The lack of facilities on the island is well documented but we're going to look a good outfit on and off the field against Denmark thanks to the new Nike kit and hopefully our continued results make people stand up and take notice"

Urban Jungle is where sport meets street in an exciting mix of products blended together in one of the best sneaker formats today. The Urban Jungle franchise opened its doors in Malta over a decade ago and lately set its course north to Sicily and Italy. To date there are 23 stores in Malta and Italy with more new stores in the pipeline over the next few years.
