Aggreko inks supply deal with 2019 Rugby World Cup

UK power generator brand Aggreko has signed as an official tournament supplier of the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.

Under the deal, Aggreko will provide critical power and distribution for the tournament, which takes place from September 20 to November 2.

As a supplier, Aggreko gets branding rights at the Rugby World Cup, the tournament website and official publications.

It will also get rights to use the Rugby World Cup official tournament supplier logo on its own content in specific markets, including the UK, France and Ireland.

Sir Bill Beaumont, chairman of World Rugby, said: “The appointment of a company with a proven track record in major events delivery to the tournament’s commercial family will further broaden the reach and profile of what is shaping up to be the most popular Rugby World Cup ever.”

Aggreko has supplied its services to several major sports events in the last 18 months, including the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games and the 2018 Ryder Cup in Paris.
