Austin Huns Release

Austin, TX (September 14, 2016). In an exciting move for both North American Rugby and sports nutrition, Ultimate Sport Nutrition (USN) have partnered with the Austin Huns to become the Official Nutrition Partner. This partnership makes the Austin Huns the first rugby team in North America to partner with the internationally acclaimed company.

USN is an innovative international brand that prides itself on being leaders in sports supplementation and product development while providing athletes superior quality at exceptional value. USN’s involvement in professional sport globally will see the Austin Huns joining the likes of the Crusaders, Lions, Sale Sharks, Gloucester Rugby and RC Toulon.

Having joined forces with the Austin Huns, CEO of USN Albé Geldenhuys said: “We’re super excited to be partnering with Huns Rugby. As brands and businesses with global growth in mind, we share the same vision, passion, and values. Rugby has been a highly effective platform for USN internationally; we absolutely love the sport, and we’re positive about the rapid expansion in the US. Because of the dynamic nature of Huns Rugby, we couldn’t have partnered with a more suitable team.”

Eugene Eloff, Austin Huns Head Coach said: “Exciting times to have USN as part of our Huns Rugby family. USN is one of the fastest growing and greatest supplements and brands in the sporting world. We are honored to have them as partners.”

This new partnership will benefit both parties in that USN can proudly share a connection with one of the United States largest rugby clubs, and the Austin Huns can take advantage of the nutritional support that USN offers. “We want to provide our players with the best opportunities to be successful as we transition from a club to Professional Team. Partnering with USN is only fitting due to them being the best supplemental company in the world. This partnership shows the team our dedication to being the best in every facet of the game” said Austin Huns General Manger, Thierry Daupin.
