Downton sign on once again as a partner of Gloucester Rugby

Downton sign on once again as a partner of Gloucester Rugby
Gloucester Rugby are delighted to confirm that C M Downton Ltd, one of the UK's leading privately-owned logistics firms, has extended its long-standing relationship with the club.

The Downton name and logo are familiar sights on the UK’s motorways on the sides of its fleet of vehicles, and has also been a feature on the Gloucester Rugby first team kit for a number of years now, proudly displayed on the back of the first team playing shirt and shorts.

This year, however, will see a change to the company’s presence on the first team playing kit as, in an innovative move, the Downton logo will now be positioned on the side panel of the shirt.

Gloucester Rugby Chief Commercial Officer, Adam Benson, told the club website that it’s a real boost for a local firm to sign on once again as a partner of the club.

“We take great pride in the fact that we are able to count on a number of local businesses as partners and sponsors, and Downton are a prime example of that. Their support is vital to the club and much appreciated.

“The position of their logo on the side panel of the kit is a new move for us. The unique design of the playing shirt has given us an extra area to work with and I think looks really good.

“Downton have supported Gloucester Rugby for a number of years now and we’re delighted that the relationship will continue this season. They’re a great local success story, one with national reach and an organisation we’re proud to be associated with.”

Downton’s Managing Director, Andy Downton, was similarly enthusiastic:

“As a local company and supporters of Gloucester Rugby, we’re proud to be so closely associated with our local Premiership club. The positioning of our logo on the side panel of the playing shirt is something we’re very excited about and can’t wait to see it featured in what we hope is a successful season for the club and Downton.”
