Connacht signs latest kit sponsor

Irish Pro12 rugby union club Connacht has signed a shirt sponsorship deal with shed and garage manufacturer Steeltech Sheds.

The company’s branding will appear on the back of the team’s playing and training shirts as part of the agreement, the length of which was not disclosed.

Steeltech Sheds is based in the Irish town of Tuam and the partnership with Connacht comes with the company looking to expand into the UK market.

In April, Connacht announced a shirt sponsorship deal with outdoor and workwear company Portwest. The three-year agreement covers the 2017-18 to 2019-20 seasons and grants Portwest exposure on the sleeves of the team's shirts.

Earlier this month, timber and building and merchant Brookes Group upgraded its partnership with Connacht to become the club's new shorts sponsor. The two-year deal covers the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons.
