SP Energy Networks to power the Warriors

 

Glasgow Warriors have agreed a major three-year partnership with SP Energy Networks, which sees the company that operates across central and southern Scotland create a powerful new partnership where the Warriors will be their Community Partner from this season.

As part of the landmark deal their logo will feature on the front of the home and alternate Macron playing kit and on the roof of the Community Stand at Scotstoun Stadium for the next three seasons. The distinctive SP Energy Networks logo will also feature on the Glasgow Warriors retail kit from the 2018/19 season.

This community partnership will see SP Energy Networks, the distribution arm of ScottishPower which owns and operates the electricity transmission and distribution network in the area, working with Glasgow Warriors on wide-ranging community events throughout the year.

SP Energy Networks will be heavily involved in match day community activity supporting schools and local clubs, the SP Energy Networks Warriors Championship for schools, and a number of other key initiatives aimed at inspiring the next generation of rugby players from surrounding communities.

Glasgow Warriors Managing Director, Nathan Bombrys said: "Our commitment to representing Glasgow and the West of Scotland is at the heart of the purpose of our club and it's clear that SP Energy Networks have an even deeper commitment within our community.

"This partnership with SP Energy Networks is an example of how great things can happen when you put a genuine focus on serving your community.

"We look forward to developing this innovative community partnership over the next three seasons."

Scottish Rugby Ambassador and Business development manager Al Kellock, who has worked closely with both ScottishPower and SP Energy Networks over the last couple of years, said: "As the ScottishPower relationship comes to an end, it's great that SP Energy Networks have seen the benefits of partnering with Glasgow Warriors.

"We look forward to working with their team over the next three years to add real depth to an exciting partnership."

SP Energy Networks Chief Executive, Frank Mitchell said: "We are delighted that Glasgow Warriors will support our focus on community engagement.

"It's vital that we support the communities we serve and we know the profile of the Warriors will give our messages improved resonance with many of them."
