Edinburgh Rugby signs shorts sponsor

Scottish Pro14 rugby union club Edinburgh has unveiled Signature Pubs as its new shorts sponsor.

The national pub group’s Kyloe establishment will be promoted on the team’s shorts during the 2017-18 Pro14 season.

A message reading ‘A Fine Rump’ will be displayed on the shorts, in reference to the steaks sold at Signature Pubs establishments.

Signature Pubs will also seek to enhance the match experience for supporters at Edinburgh’s Myreside stadium, where it will host and operate the fans’ bar.

The supporters’ marquee will be refurbished as part of the deal, with Signature Pubs to offer food and drink from their establishments.

Edinburgh begins the 2017-18 season with an away game against the Cardiff Blues tomorrow (Friday).

Edinburgh-based Signature Pubs establishments include Kyloe, The Huxley, Badger & Co and The Queens Arms.
