Downton extend long-term partnership with Gloucester Rugby
25 June 2019
One of Gloucester Rugby’s longest standing commercial partners, CM Downton Ltd, have agreed to extend their relationship with the club.
One of the UK’s leading privately-owned logistics firms, the Downton name and logo have been a familiar sight on the UK’s motorways on the sides of its fleet of vehicles for many years as well as on the Gloucester Rugby first team shirt.
The renewed agreement means the company logo will continue to have a presence on the first team playing kit and will also now see Gloucester Rugby branding appear upon a number of Downton vehicles.
Gloucester Rugby’s Chief Commercial Officer, Adam Benson, confirmed that he was delighted that Downton are continuing their relationship with the club.
“It’s terrific news that our long-term relationship with Downton continues to go from strength to strength. The two organisations have been through so much together and we’re delighted that we’ll be continuing to work with them.”
Duncan Eyre of Downton added:
“Following the sale of Downton Group by the Downton Brothers to EmergeVest last year, it makes me very proud as the new Managing Director to say that we will continue the valued partnership with Gloucester Rugby for the next two years.
“It is a relationship that our colleagues hold very dear and I look forward to a successful two years of development and growth together.”
