“The stories from our game, beautifully told, from grassroots rugby up to the elite, and everything in between.” is written on the flags of THE RUGBY JOURNAL. PAWEL FABJANSKI photographed the beautiful story about the founder of the first professional Chilean rugby team and the start of the newly formed Superliga Americana de Rugby for the sports magazine from London.
The SUPERLIGA AMERICANA DE RUGBY is the only professional rugby championship in South America. It is organized by the South America Rugby League and is a franchise model with six teams from the countries Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay, and Uruguay. It is played in parallel to the Major League Rugby League (professional rugby league in the US), and the winners of both planned on competing for the Interamerican title in Mexico. The first season was scheduled for 2020 but had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic after only one tournament game.
The spread already photographed by Pawel Fabjanski in Chile in January, 2020, appeared in THE RUGBY JOURNAL, which is published by the content agency eric in London. The text for the story was contributed by Frankie Deges.
