London Irish secures Pitmans tie-up

English Premiership rugby union team London Irish has agreed a two-year sponsorship deal with Thames Valley-based law firm Pitmans.

Under the agreement, Pitmans’ branding will feature on the left leg on the back of Irish’s shorts in all Premiership, domestic and European fixtures.

Christopher Avery, managing partner of Pitmans, said: “We believe in investing in regional brands for the benefit of the Thames Valley. Rugby union is enjoying a growing profile with the recent Lions series victory and the Rugby World Cup in 2015, taking place in the UK.”

London Irish began its 2013-14 Premiership campaign with a 42-20 defeat to Saracens at Twickenham on Saturday.
