GMB Union Renew Castleford Tigers Kit Sponsorship

November 29, 2013

Castleford Tigers have announced they have extended their kit sponsorship deal with GMB Union for an eleventh consecutive season.

The renewal, which runs until the end of the 2014 Super League season, will see the general union’s logo feature on the chests of the Tigers’ shirts and the back of matchday tickets.

Steve Jennings, Senior Organiser of GMB said: “We are extremely proud of our sponsorship of Castleford Tigers which has now been in place for over a decade.

“The Tigers’ values of being a family friendly club which is run with pride and passion for its supporters and dedication to the community are shared by GMB and that’s what makes this partnership so unique.

“Our sole responsibility is to improve the pay and conditions of GMB members in their workplaces and the best way for us to do that is to increase the number of GMB members in order to strengthen the Union’s power. Our continued support of the Tigers not only enables the club to progress but it also allows us to maintain a level of exposure on a regional and national level to achieve our goal.”

Castleford Tigers’ Commercial Manager, Richard Pell commented: “GMB have been supporters of the club for such a long time and we’re delighted that they have decided to continue their partnership.

“It’s important that our existing sponsors continue to see value and a return on their investment and it speaks volumes for the strength of our relationship that GMB have committed to a new deal which will take them into their eleventh year with club.”
