Marysville, OH. September 1st, 2016 — RUDIS, a premier athletic apparel brand that is uniquely marketed to the national wrestling community, has partnered as a sponsor and vendor with IAwrestle.com’s “The Night of Conflict ” to promote one of the nation’s most unique and highly-respected wrestling events.
Since its inception, “The Night of Conflict” has boasted some of the best, high-level match-ups in the country. The dual-style event touts a clash of elite wrestlers: one from Iowa, one from a contrasting state. This “Iowa vs. the Nation” mentality has been uniquely captured and utilized by “The Night of Conflict ” In addition to high-level match-ups, an event of this caliber is only as great as its atmosphere. “The Night of Conflict” is set to take place in one of the Nation’s most historic venues: Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Though “The Night of Conflict” is only in its second year of existence, it already boasts a number of outstanding match-ups including battles between top-ten nationally ranked wrestlers.
RUDIS co-founder and President Jesse Leng comments on the partnership, “RUDIS is committed to partnering with people and events that represent the best our sport has to offer. Being on site at Carver-Hawkeye Arena in conjunction with one of the best high school dual meets of the year is an exciting honor for our brand. This is what wrestling is all about and why RUDIS exists.”
Director of the Night of Conflict and Co-Founder of IAwrestle.com, Tony Hager, comments on the partnership, “Last year we just wanted to provide wrestling fans in Iowa a great pre-season dual that showcased the talent in our state. Now it has become a national dual and to bring RUDIS on will only help our event grow.”
The partnership includes the design and outfit of all competitor uniforms for the event. In addition, RUDIS event staff will be on site merchandising a full catalog of products including event specific apparel.
“The way RUDIS presents their merchandising is something wrestling has needed at big events. I can’t wait for fans to get their hands on the new IAwrestle gear.” Said Hager.
Formed in September of 2013, Rudis is a brand that develops and markets merchandise tailored to satisfy the needs and tastes of the global amateur wrestling community. Rudis proudly partners with some of the greatest names in the history of the sport including Sunkist Kids, Ohio State University, University of Iowa, and Dave Schultz.
