Infinity Rugby are delighted to announce that Andy Nicol, the former Scotland and British & Irish Lions scrum half turned BBC pundit and commentator, has become our official Ambassador for Rugby World Cup France 2023.
Nicol will host several events for Infinity Rugby in his role, as well as provide analysis and comment on international matches between now and next Autumn as we build Infinity Rugby’s own journey in the lead up to the tournament. Andy will ultimately form part of our broader team in Marseille as Infinity Rugby welcomes fans from around the world aboard the Norwegian Epic cruise ship in partnership with Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL).
The former scrum half, who won 23 caps for Scotland & lifted the Heineken Cup with Bath, said of his new role, “I am delighted to become Infinity Rugby’s Ambassador for RWC2023.
“There is very little in global sport that compares to a Rugby World Cup for a fan. The prospect of the 2023 competition on the field against a backdrop of a truly passionate rugby nation, is alone mouth-watering. But combined with the unique experience that Infinity Rugby is creating for its customers on board, the whole experience promises to be world class.
With entertainment, rugby legends and events around the matches and across the destinations, this is going to be a once-in-a-lifetime way to enjoy the broader experience of RWC2023.”
Partnering with NCL, Infinity Rugby will offer rugby fans, travel aficionados and thrill seekers alike a truly incredible experience. Offering packages in the south of France, Infinity customers will be able to experience the glamour of the French Riviera from their base in Marseille aboard the Norwegian Epic, whilst also attending some of the biggest games with official match tickets for Rugby World Cup France 2023. Some of the packages also allow guests to enjoy the delights of the Mediterranean, including a trip to legendary clubbing capital of the world, Ibiza.
Manan Shah, CEO of Infinity Sports Travel, said: “I am so excited about this partnership with Andy. He is instantly recognisable to all rugby fans and is a demonstration of our commitment to providing the best for our customers. I’m excited to see some of the content developed with Andy over the coming months, which will demonstrate how unique our offering is.”
