Bath Rugby drive on with Mercedes-Benz

By iSportconnect | September 23, 2016

For the third year running, Mercedes-Benz will be Bath Rugby’s Official Vehicle Supplier and its logo will appear on the players’ matchday shorts to mark its status.

As part of the exclusive tie-up, the Peasedown St John Retailer supplies cars to Bath Rugby for officials and players to use through a VIP programme established between the RFU and Mercedes-Benz. Rhys Priestland, Charlie Ewels, Chris Cook and Jeff Williams are amongst those who have recently taken delivery of vehicles under this arrangement.

During the season, Mercedes-Benz of Bath will also display cars at The Recreation Ground and provide special offers to season ticket holders.

“We’re proud to maintain a long-standing relationship with Bath Rugby which began several years ago but has been cemented by our appointment as Official Vehicle Supplier in 2014,” said Tim Sett, Mercedes-Benz of Bath’s Head of Business.

“As a business, we’re right behind the Club in every sense and to have our logo displayed in the thick of the action on the players’ shorts is absolutely fantastic.”

Matt Powell, Business Development Director, Bath Rugby, added: “We consider Mercedes-Benz of Bath to be very much part of the team here at Bath Rugby and their ongoing support to the Club and our players is invaluable.

“Mercedes-Benz is a brand that is recognised worldwide so we’re delighted to continue our successful association with them.”
