We are delighted to announce that in addition to being official ICT Partners to Nottingham Rugby, we have renewed our sponsorship of the club for the third year running.
As long standing sponsors of Nottingham Rugby, we are extremely pleased to be back as #PartOfTheTeam for the 2017/18 season.
As part of the deal, fans will see the return of the Air-IT logo which will once again feature on the back of the first team shorts.

Known to fans as the Green and Whites, Nottingham Rugby kicked off a flying start to the new season winning 46 – 10 against local rivals Rotherham Titans in their first match played away at Clifton Lane on Sunday 3rd September.
For us, supporting the team also means getting down to The Bay and cheering them on from the side-lines. Though defeated, we enjoyed watching some brilliant ball play in the first home match against Yorkshire Carnegie on Friday 8th September, with a finishing score of 35 -27.

Nottingham Rugby General Manager, Steve Smith said of the relationship with Air-IT:
We’re really privileged to be involved with such a fantastic local business, who really love their sport and value their connections with local clubs. Off the pitch, they continue to be a vital part of our team, helping drive our business forward with leading edge ICT solutions, as well as providing first class technical support, both off and on‐site.
As a locally based business we’ve been supporting sports in the area for a number of years but Nottingham Rugby holds a special significance for CEO, Todd McQuilkin who has been a fan and regular supporter of the Green and Whites since his move to Nottingham from New Zealand in 1983. A successful team, established in 1877 and steeped in history, we feel privileged to continue to be part of the club’s story moving into the year ahead.
As a kiwi, being a rugby fan is a given and I quickly adopted Notts as my own team when my family moved to the UK in my youth. We have a fantastic relationship with the club and it’s great to get down to The Bay and support the lads. We wish them the very best of luck in both the Green King IPA Championship and the British Irish Cup campaigns.
Now entering our third year as player sponsor, we are pleased to show our support for new signing Danny Qualter.

Qualter comes to Nottingham from Connacht where he played through the ranks to the first team from the academy. A mountain of a man, he is ideal in position as Lock and we’re sure he will be a real asset to the team.

In further support of the club we are once more sponsoring the Nottingham Rugby Academy side who will be wearing the Air-IT logo on their team jersey’s for the 2017/18 campaign.

Providing a unique route into professional rugby for youth players and with an eye on the future, Nottingham Rugby launched the academy in 2015 to develop talented individuals from schools and clubs in the Midlands area.
Fast becoming the envy of many rival Championship and Premiership clubs the academy is an invaluable resource from which the club aims to identify and develop potential Nottingham Rugby first team talent.
Here at Air-IT we’re extremely proud to be #PartOfTheTeam and are excited for a successful season ahead. We look forward to attending plenty of matches down at The Bay as partner, sponsor and supporters, this year and for many more to come.
We’d like to wish everyone at the club the very best of luck for the new season ahead, both and off the pitch.
