Featherstone Rovers have been given a timely boost as we enter the final stages of the season with the news that Commercial Partner LINPAC has renewed its main shirt sponsorship of the club and will adorn the front of the home and away shirt next season.
LINPAC 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. LINPAC returned as commercial partner in 2013 and appeared on the shorts before becoming our main shirt sponsor in 2014.
LINPAC has a long association with the town and employs more than 300 at their Global Headquarters and site in Featherstone. The Commercial Agreement includes tickets for LINPAC employees, pitch side perimeter advertising, hospitality and the opportunity for Featherstone Rovers to be actively promoted at the site.
Featherstone Rovers Commercial Manager Paul Taylor “We are delighted to announce that LINPAC have reaffirmed their commitment to Rovers and will continue to be our main shirt sponsor for 2016. Since creating the new partnership in 2013 we have built up a strong relationship and I’m sure supporters of the club will be pleased to hear that a global brand like LINPAC will be once again on the front of our shirt. It’s also pleasing that the company recognises the benefits of being associated with ourselves and wish to continue their support.”
Graeme Robinson, Managing Director of LINPAC, UK & Ireland, Saudi Arabia & Australia said: “We have a number of Rovers supporters working for us and they are really pleased to see our company supporting the team and of course, our local community. It’s great to bring customers along to the club and enable our employees to receive tickets as part of our incentive programmes. We wish the team well for the next season and look forward to cheering them on.”
