Ritzbury Super 16 Junior Rugby Carnival Soars to an Excellent Start

Ritzbury, the beloved chocolate brand by Ceylon Biscuits Limited (CBL) is once again empowering the much anticipated ‘Ritzbury Super 16 Junior Rugby Carnival 2023’ for the third year. This initiative further demonstrates Ritzbury’s dedication to nurturing the skill development of young sports talents in the country.

In its 14th consecutive year, the upcoming Super 16 Junior Rugby Carnival is set to feature an impressive participation of 112 teams representing 44 different schools, all competing in the Under 10 and Under 12 categories. The event will kick off with the first three rounds scheduled to take place at the Royal College Sports Complex, commencing on September 3rd. Subsequent rounds are slated for September 17th and October 1st.

The 4th round has been strategically planned for October 22nd in Kandy, with a deliberate intent to extend greater opportunities to schools and students in the Kandy region, ensuring their active participation in this prestigious event.

It is also worth noting that the purpose of the carnival is to advance rugby and give aspiring ruggerites a chance to showcase their talents in a friendly competition. The carnival does not crown a champion to inspire all players to participate in a sport that embodies grit, commitment, and true sportsmanship.

Speaking on Ritzbury’s contribution towards the Rugby carnival, Nilupul de Silva, General Manager of Marketing – CBL Foods International, said, “Hosting this event marks our ongoing commitment to nurturing the next generation of Sri Lankan sports talents. Ritzbury is dedicated to fostering sports development among our capable youth. We take immense pride in hosting the Ritzbury Super 16 Junior Rugby Carnival 2023, and we encourage all teams to bring out their best on the field.”

Commenting about the event, Shahid Sangani, Secretary – Organising Committee said, “The Super 16 Junior Rugby Carnival is thrilled to once again collaborate with Ritzbury, boosting junior Rugby talent in Sri Lanka. With 112 teams from 44 schools, this year’s participation is a remarkable success.”

With rugby’s popularity in Sri Lanka with high spectator engagement, Ritzbury is confident that its position as a market leader in the Sri Lankan chocolate industry will ensure a successful and exciting event this year as well.
