Skema Business School and Passion Ovale - Rugby Union of the Skema - present : FRENCH RIVIERA RUGBY SEVENS.
2 days, 16 Teams from worldwide, 44 games, 1 Winner.
This sevens rugby tournament that will take place in Cannes - Mandelieu, France, from the 9th to 12th April of 2010.
French Students Federation FFSU and Olympic Comitee of French Riviera already support our tournament as Thierry Dusautoir, the captain of the French rugby team (XV de France) and of the Stade Toulousain, does.
The Skema Business School and its rugby union, - Esprit Passion Ovale- aspire to show their interests and efforts for the development of rugby and its values: humbleness, courageous and generosity which deserve to be known by all.
The CERAM Business School, just merges with the ESC Lille School of Management to create SKEMA Business School and became the biggest French Business Schools in number of students; the second one in number of professors. A business school born to be adapted to the world economy.
The school never stops encouraging international opportunities to get the best out of everyone. These motivations are similar to those university and business school rugby teams, which create an osmosis between people with different morphologies, cultural background. Despite differences, get the best out of everyone, give birth to a unit, for the success of all.
What we are promoting is not a simple tournament, it's a trophy carried by determination, conviction, passion and dreams from the hundreds passionate peoples that we represent.
More than a one day trophy, it will be a competition which would be organised every year and in the hope that it will grow to have a high reputation around the world. We have the desire to unite the best rugby teams from business schools and university around the world in one destination.
The student rugby is surely not the most famous nor the most watched rugby played nowadays. Yet, it is for sure, the strongest and most passionate. It is on the school's playground including ours that we can find out the past values, which strengthen and stimulate each rugby player.
To prove itself as major element in French Business School's rugby, Esprit Passion Ovale and the whole school wish this tournament to transmit those values and also reach the level of those Schools, which marked this sport's history.
