Air-IT is delighted to be sponsoring Nottingham Rugby for the second season running, which will once again see our logo being proudly worn on the back of player's shorts throughout 2016/17.

We’re very much looking forward to supporting the team as they work towards building on their position in the Greene King IPA Championship league, following the first full season in their new home at The Bay in West Bridgford.
With new manager Ian Costello coming in from Munster and lots of development plans for the ground over the coming years, it makes for an extremely exciting time to be involved with the club.
Paul Judge, Marketing Director at Air-IT comments:
We’re always keen to help support our local sports teams and are delighted to get behind the Green and Whites for the second year running.
It’s a fantastic local club, steeped in history with promising plans for the future. It’s great to help contribute in some way and be part of the Nottingham Rugby family. We wish the new Head Coach, team and club every success in this coming season – both on and off the pitch.

About our sponsorship
It was a great opportunity to become more closely involved in the future of this promising local sports club and to strengthen existing relations by becoming their official IT partner – and we’re extremely pleased to say our partnership has never been stronger.
Steve Smith, General Manager of Nottingham Rugby adds:
The support that Air-IT has been able to give to the club has helped us to improve what we do off the field.
The company has been extremely supportive and we have developed an excellent partnership, which is constantly helping the club to improve and move forward.
Player sponsors of Morgan Eames
Last season we also agreed to be player sponsor for up and coming second row Morgan Eames and we’re delighted to be continuing in this role for a second consecutive year.

As a local player from Mansfield, we’re especially proud to sponsor Eames who has risen through the ranks from grassroots level having started his rugby career with Newark RUFC.
We’d like to wish Eames and all of his teammates the best of luck in the new season ahead!

Nottingham Rugby Academy
We’re also pleased to be sponsoring Nottingham Rugby Academy this season which sees our logo prominently printed on the back of the team shirt.
Nottingham Rugby Academy was launched in 2015 to develop and support talented players from local clubs, schools and universities across the Midlands.
It aims to identify potential Nottingham Rugby talent and also allows its members to continue to play with their home side, providing them with additional time and opportunity to progress.
This is an invaluable investment into the future success of the club, providing a unique pathway for home grown, grass roots players to become professional rugby stars.
Since launching, the Academy is proving extremely successful. This season 5 players have been asked to train with the first team squad, whilst 2 more went on to make their debuts.
Thanks to the hard work of Matt Everard and the team, the academy is going from strength to strength and is quickly becoming the envy of many rival Championship and even Premiership clubs.

As a locally based business, we’re extremely proud to be associated with Nottingham Rugby and look forward to sharing many further years of success as a partner, sponsor, supporter and in being #PartOfTheTeam.
We’d like to wish everyone at the club the very best for the season ahead and look forward to cheering them all on throughout the season at The Bay.
