AKKA steps up as Toulouse shorts sponsor

French Top 14 rugby union club Toulouse has expanded its partnership with engineering and technology consulting group AKKA.

The new three-season agreement will run until June 2022 and grants AKKA brand exposure on the team’s shorts for all league matches.

As an official partner of Toulouse, AKKA will sit on the second tier of the team’s sponsorship tree. The company has been a partner of the club since 2006.

Toulouse last year signed an extension to its long-running shirt sponsorship deal with French automotive manufacturer Peugeot. The company will remain a major partner of the club until June 2021.
