New London Wasps sponsors CVS will be cheering on the side when they face Sale Sharks on Friday, as over 80 staff from the business rates specialists' Manchester office head to the Salford City Stadium.
Mark Rigby, Chief Executive of CVS and Chairman of London Wasps is behind the initiative and sees the weekend's fixture as a prize opportunity to encourage his regional office to get behind the London side: "I'm delighted to be able to take so many of our team to support London Wasps. It will be great for our staff to experience a match as Main Sponsor supporters. Away games are notoriously more difficult to win, and the stadium atmosphere can play a big part in that. I'm sure the CVS team will make London Wasps feel at home."
Nick Eastwood, Chief Executive of London Wasps commented on the match ahead: "We're very much looking forward to our trip to Manchester this weekend and visiting the AJ Bell Stadium. We played there for the first time last season and lost by the narrowest of margins so we're looking for a positive result on Friday night. We always get a warm welcome at Sale Sharks and it should be a great evening for any of our supporters making the trip."
