Northampton Saints can today announce a brand-new partnership with Slurp Wines, who have become an official event supplier until the end of the season.
Wine providers Slurp – who operate online across the UK – supplied refreshments at Saints’ recent Hall of Fame dinner at Franklin’s Gardens, and will also provide a range of wines at Northampton’s End-of-Season event.
The Banbury-based firm offer a wide selection of wines from around the world at exceptional value, and as well as catering for gifts, parties and weddings, also host monthly themed tasting events to showcase their products.
The agreement, which began in style at Saints’ glittering Hall of Fame dinner last week, will also see Slurp receive a suite of commercial rights including branding, advertising, player sponsorships and access to matchday tickets.
And Saints’ commercial director, Lee Gibbons, is delighted to have the backing of another locally-based business.
“At Saints, we’re very passionate about creating a top-quality product in all areas of the Club, including at our celebratory events,” he said.
“Slurp are a perfect partner for us in that respect. Like Saints, they strive to be the best in their industry, and their consistently-high standards will be a huge asset the Club as we look to celebrate our achievements.
“So we’re ecstatic to have secured Slurp’s services for our remaining events this season, and are looking forward to developing this relationship.”
Hugh Taylor, Slurp’s managing director, added: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Saints; a huge rugby club with a long history of success.
“Many of our employees are also Saints fans, and now we are very proud to be a part of the Northampton story as the Club continues to grow.
“Celebrating the success of the team at Saints, both on and off the pitch, is hugely important and we’re excited to provide the refreshments that will help toast those that make the Club so special at the end of the season.”
