We are pleased to announce that the company has become the main sponsor of Sheffield RUFC.
The rugby club was founded in 1902 and following the Great War moved to its current location at Abbeydale Park in 1919. The 1st XV plays in the Midlands Premier League, but the club is very much part of the local community, boasting over 20 teams covering different levels of ability, ladies and veterans teams as well as a number of youth and children’s teams.
Our Managing Director, Nick Wilson said,
“Sheffield RUFC has a long history and connection with the city. As a Sheffield-based company, we are proud to be associated with such a local, iconic sporting institution.”
“As a firm, we always like to support the local community and we are thrilled to be able to put our backing behind Sheffield RUFC and encourage the development of all 20 teams.”
Chairman of Sheffield RUFC, Andrew Langdale, commented,
“We are delighted to welcome Wilson Field as our main sponsors in this important year for the club. It is our centenary year since moving to Abbeydale Park. This ties in with the upgrade of the clubhouse and the recent arrival of Omega at Abbeydale – providing superb catering and hospitality facilities.”
“This is a vibrant club with a very bright future thanks in no small part to the support provided by local businesses like Wilson Field providing sponsorship.”
“As well as the senior teams, children of all ages and ability are encouraged to come and join us to take an active part in the game rugby. This support from local businesses is vital to the club. It will allow us to encourage even more youngsters into the game through our youth set up.”
