Yorkshire-based plumbing and heating specialists Plumbcare.com were today unveiled as Wakefield Trinity Wildcats’ new main sponsor, writes PETER SMITH.
Plumbcare.com will feature on the club’s home and away shirts and will be involved in the Wakefield community through work with the club’s community trust.
Wildcats chairman Michael Carter said: “The investment into our club by Plumbcare.com will extend far beyond the usual brand awareness needs of sponsors and we urge everyone to support this partnership.
“The investment by a local firm into our club, our sport and our community is a positive step forward and one which is greatly appreciated by all.”
Verity Thomas, Wildcats’ commercial manager, added: “We have already begun working closely with [Plumbcare.com] to establish new and innovative ideas for the impending season.
“Supporters will be excited to see what the partnership has planned as both organisations are committed to providing new and exciting opportunities for fans throughout our club and the First Utility Super League.”
The firm’s managing director Kristian Pashley described linking up with Wildcats as “an absolute pleasure”.
He said: “In the future, as a company we want to work together as a team to promote both club and company and stand out and flourish.
“We would also like to help in any way, shape or form the city of Wakefield to show that we care about the people that live here and the supporters of the Wildcats.
“As a company we have always wanted to try something different in regards to promoting ourselves and giving back to the city of Wakefield by sponsoring the Wildcats and being different to any other run of the mill heating company.”
