We’re delighted to announce that we’re getting behind Nottingham Rugby this season as one of their official kit sponsors which will see the Air-IT logo proudly displayed on the back of player’s shorts.

Air-IT official kit sponsor

Air-IT staff recently attended a pre-season team photo shoot where they were able to get a sneak preview of the new kit, meet the players and mingle with other sponsors who we join in supporting the club in the 2015-16 Greene King IPA Championship League season.

The Green & Whites new kit was officially unveiled at the club’s season launch event held on 2nd September at their new home, The Bay, in West Bridgford.

Teaming up with the Green & Whites

Air-IT have been supporting Nottingham Rugby’s ICT systems for a number of years now and recently helped with the move from Meadow Lane to their new home at The Bay.

Steve Smith, General Manager of Nottingham Rugby explains more:

It’s brilliant to have Air-IT join the Nottingham Rugby Team as a sponsor, especially as they’ve been providing us with brilliant IT solutions and support for over two years now.

Having recently moved to The Bay, they’ve enabled us to remain operational at such an important time for the club with a massive amount of upheaval taking place.

We’d like to thank everyone at Air-IT for their support and we look forward to a long partnership.

There’s no shortage of Green & Whites fans amongst the Air-IT staff too with Managing Director, Todd McQuilkin hailing from the southern hemisphere.

Todd says:

As a Kiwi, rugby is in my blood and I’ve been a fan of the Green & Whites ever since I moved to Nottingham in 1983.

Naturally, I’m delighted that Air-IT are on board as a kit sponsor and wish the club every success, on and off the pitch, as a club partner and fan. Here’s to a great 2015/16.

Air-IT staff will be getting behind the team this year when we attend a number of home games throughout the season.

And we’ve already enjoyed a pre-season friendly in August when Nottingham Rugby took on the Tongan national side as part of their world cup preparations.

Staff were treated to a full-blooded and highly entertaining game in front of a sell-out crowd at The Bay. But despite a gutsy and battling performance from the Green & Whites they eventually went down to a 14-69 defeat to the Tongans who are ranked 10th in the world.

Good Luck Green and Whites!

Everyone at Air-IT is looking forward to the season ahead and we’d like to wish Nottingham Rugby the very best of luck in their many fixtures to come.

Please watch this space for further updates throughout the season and find out what happens when a group of players visit our offices later this month to officially launch our new sponsorship deal.
