The key builder of the Move Sports Creed is our CEO, António da Cunha.
António is a man that needs to go back to action on the pitch, despite his Law background. A former 54 caps rugby national team player, who played for the Barbarians and Penguins, a surfer and a runner, António brings the drive, the focus and the strategy to our game.
We keep telling him that this is a completely different game, but he loves to be in the ruck and in the scrum. So, yes, hands-on details, full speed, 24/7.
