Northampton Saints are delighted to confirm that the Club’s long-standing partnership with Travis Perkins has been extended.
This new agreement between the men in Black, Green and Gold and the UK’s largest builders’ merchants means that one of the longest-running partnerships in British sport will remain in place until at least 2025.
For the upcoming 2021/22 campaign, Travis Perkins will celebrate their 20-year anniversary with Saints by remaining as the Club’s Principal Partner and, in doing so, will maintain their branding on the front of Northampton’s home and away playing kits.
From 2022/23 onwards, Travis Perkins will take on an exciting new role as the Club’s Headline Community Partner, focusing on helping to make the game of rugby more accessible to all and using the power of sport to positively impact a wide range of groups and individuals.
Travis Perkins will support the Club’s activities across grassroots women’s and girls’ rugby, wheelchair rugby, and will partner with the Club to create an innovative new Matchday Inclusion Hub. In addition, Travis Perkins and Saints will enhance the impactful campaigns that they have already been delivering, notably driving the conversation on Diversity and Inclusion as well as Mental Health Awareness.
“We are still extremely proud to support Saints with an extension to our existing partnership,” said Frank Elkins, Chief Operating Officer at Travis Perkins.
“It’s fantastic to see the Travis Perkins name across Northampton’s famous Black, Green and Gold jerseys for one more season.
“But in keeping with the longstanding relationship we have with the Club, we have once again been able to evolve the partnership, and we’re excited to focus on driving community impact through a series of exciting programmes over the next four years, aligned with our broader values and objectives across the Travis Perkins Group.”
Northampton Saints’ CEO, Mark Darbon, added: “We are absolutely delighted to extend our partnership with Travis Perkins.
“The relationship between the Travis family and the Club extends back nearly 100 years, and long may it continue.
“With both businesses rooted in Northampton, over the next four seasons we will look to use this unique relationship to have a transformational impact on our local communities.”
