Canterbury Sign Three Year Kit Deal with Rotherham Titans
Canterbury, the worlds largest dedicated rugby brand, today announced that it has secured a new partnership to become the official kit supplier to South Yorkshire based team, the Rotherham Titans.
The three-year deal brings together Canterbury’s hundred plus years of experience in producing the finest and sturdiest rugby kits and one of the success stories of English club rugby history in the Titans.
Currently playing in the English RFU Championship, the Rotherham Titans saw a huge rise in success up the league structure during a phenomenal “golden decade” in the 1990s and early 2000s. The team is now consistently a top 20 club in English rugby and has developed a strong reputation as a breeding ground for developing talented players such as David Strettle, Hendré Fourie and Erik Lund.
The new deal, which launches on June 1st 2013, has come about from Canterbury’s desire to have Championship representation in the north of England to sit alongside London Scottish in the South and Moseley in the Midlands.
Chris Stephenson, CEO of Canterbury said: “Rotherham Titans remains a consistent top 20 club in English rugby and it is important for us to have a real brand presence within the English Championship, not just the Premiership. We are looking forward to working with a club with such a successful rugby history and to be a part of a team which attracts a dedicated and passionate rugby audience, combined with their dedication to producing and developing talented players. I have no doubt there is a successful road ahead.”
Nick Cragg, Rotherham Rugby Union Football club Chairman said: “We are thrilled to have such a prestigious rugby brand as Canterbury come on board with the club. The Titans share the same passion and commitment towards high performance rugby as Canterbury and we look forward to excelling together on the pitch.”
