GB Wheelchair Rugby announces King Power as title sponsor of Quad Nations tournament
September 8, 2022
Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby (GBWR) is delighted to announce that Leicester City Football Club Owners, King Power, have confirmed they will once again be the title sponsor of the Wheelchair Rugby Quad Nations tournament and official partner of GBWR.
As title sponsor of the annual Wheelchair Rugby Quad Nations tournament since 2018 and a passionate supporter of sport, King Power has a close synergy with GBWR and understands the importance in giving back to society. The global business is active in all aspects of social responsibility from sponsoring of the arts, culture and sports, to maintaining and incorporating Thai heritage and traditional Buddhist philosophy in everyday services and business operations.
GBWR is taking the Quad Nations tournament to Wales for the first time this year with the Sport Wales National Centre in Cardiff set to host the competition from the 16th to 18th of September. The Quad Nations sees top GB Paralympians, as well as athletes from France, Germany and Canada, battle it out in a gripping four-team international event. It is a significant date in this year’s wheelchair rugby calendar as key preparation ahead of October’s World Championships in Denmark, as well as building up to next year’s European Championship which is also being held in the rugby-loving Welsh city.
GBWR Chief Executive Jason Brisbane added: “We are absolutely delighted to have King Power on board. GBWR hosting the 2022 Quad Nations in Cardiff marks the start of a new and exciting chapter for our sport. King Power have been by our side for the last 5 years, they know and understand our sport and are passionate supporters. We are absolutely delighted to be able to confirm King Power as title sponsor for what we know is going to be a great event hosted in the rugby-loving nation of Wales and one that is sure to inspire people and create a true legacy for wheelchair rugby.”
