Air-IT Marketing Director, Paul Judge and Chairman of Ilkeston Rugby, Colin Davies at the club’s home ground, The Stute
With our new pitch-side banners, scoreboard, and programme advertising in place, we’re very much looking forward to supporting Ilkeston RUFC and all of their teams throughout the 2016/17 season at their home ground The Stute, based in Ilkeston, Derbyshire.
Paul Judge, Marketing Director at Air-IT says:
We’re really excited to be supporting Ilkeston Rugby this season.
It’s a fantastic club, doing great work within the community to develop and promote the sport to individuals of all abilities and ages. We’d like to wish everyone at the club the very best of luck in all of their upcoming fixtures.
About Ilkeston RUFC
Founded in 1926, Ilkeston RUFC is a well-established rugby union football club.
This season, our sponsorship has helped to support the club’s various teams, otherwise known as the Elks.
Collectively, these teams include a successful senior section covering 4 divisions, including the First XV team who play in the Midlands 1 East Division, against the likes of Lutterworth, Melton Mowbray and local rivals Paviors.
Ilkeston RUFC is also home to a thriving junior division. Starting from under 6’s, the junior divisions cover all ages and primarily focus on player development through to Colts at ages 17-19, with many breaking through to become senior players.
All in all, this makes for an extremely exciting opportunity for Air-IT to become more involved with rugby at a grassroots level, having an established relationship already as official club partners of Championship side Nottingham Rugby.
Chairman of Ilkeston RUFC, Colin Davies comments:
It’s fantastic to have Air IT as a new sponsor. It is paramount to the ongoing development of Ilkeston RUFC to have local companies involved in various areas of the club, from mini’s and juniors, to colt’s and up to senior rugby.
Sponsorship is crucial to the running of the club, and we look forward to giving Air IT a warm welcome at upcoming games, and events at the club.
Good luck to the Elks!
Once again, we’d like to wish everyone at Ilkeston RUFC the very best for the season ahead and look forward to attending upcoming matches with our staff, clients and guests.
