The FMB sponsored Leslie Sevens Rugby Tournament will be launched on Saturday the 24th of June, 2017 at the Blantyre Sports Club. FMB has for the past four years been sponsoring the Leslie Sevens Rugby tournament, playing its role in development of minority sports in the country.
The Leslie Seven’s Rugby Tournament was established by Wilfred John Leslie Snr, a Blantyre City Councilor in 1948.
The first trophy was won by his team, Blantyre Sports Club which was captained by his son, Jock Leslie.
This tournament is comprised of teams that are made up of seven players playing seven minute halves, instead of the usual 15 players playing 40 minute halves.
This year FMB will co-sponsor the tournament with FES, one of their corporate customers.
