August 1, 2013

Equipment manufacturer Butterfly has announced it has concluded a new four-year deal with the English Table Tennis Association to sponsor the English National Team kits at the senior, vcialis 40mg junior and cadet levels.

In a deal worth more than £100,000 ($151,887) it will see Butterfly once again supply the England kit for most major international events including World Championships, European Championships, Home Internationals and all junior and cadet events.

ETTA Chairman Andy Seward said: “We would like to welcome Butterfly on board as the ETTA’s official clothing supplier for the next four years. All the England teams will be wearing the Butterfly clothing when on duty and I think that is excellent for the sport and for English table tennis in particular.

“It’s a good time for us, a good time for table tennis and I hope we will see positive results for England wearing the kit.”

The new deal will further the relationship between English table tennis and Butterfly who also already sponsor 18 of the leading English players and 15 major clubs who compete in the British League.

Sebastian Rangs, Export Sales Director for Butterfly Europe, said: “We as Butterfly are very pleased that the England team will be wearing our brand again as we have done in the past.

“We have a lot of very good players already in England like Kelly [Sibley] and Liam [Pitchford] that have been using our equipment and of course we are more than happy to see them in Butterfly National Team clothing again.”
