Backing Rovers all the way

We are delighted to announce that we are extending our commercial partnership with Featherstone Rovers for a further 12 months and will be the main shirt sponsor in 2015 on both the home and away playing shirt as well as replicas.
LINPAC Packaging first appeared on the Featherstone Rovers shirt in 1981/1982 in the first ever shirt sponsorship deal in Rugby League and were the main sponsor of the club until 1989. We returned as commercial partner in 2013 and appeared on the shorts before becoming our main shirt sponsor in 2014.
LINPAC Packaging has a long association with the town and employs more than 300 at our global headquarters and site in Featherstone.
Featherstone Rovers Commercial Manager Paul Taylor said: "It is a great boost to able to announce that LINPAC Packaging have continued their commitment to Rovers for a further year. We were extremely proud to see the return of the LINPAC brand on the front of the Featherstone Rovers shirt this season as it was one of the iconic commercial deals in the history of sport in the UK.
“I am sure supporters and the town of Featherstone will be equally proud to see one of the major employers in the town and a cornerstone of the local economy continuing their partnership with the club. They are a global brand and it is a great endorsement to the work that everyone is doing at the club and what we are trying to achieve. I look forward to working with LINPAC Packaging in 2015 for what should an exciting season. I would like to thank Graeme Robinson, Joanna Stephenson and Barbara Laing of LINPAC Packaging for their continued support."
Graeme Robinson, our managing director of LINPAC Packaging UK & Ireland said: "The culture and fighting spirit at Featherstone Rovers is a great example of an organisation working both with its commercial partners and within the community.   Featherstone Rovers share LINPAC’s commitment to the town and the local area and we are delighted to continue our support of Featherstone Rovers and are looking forward to an exciting 2015 season with great hopes ".
