Lee & Thompson advises Premiership Rugby as it kicks off Gallagher partnership

Lee & Thompson’s Sports team has advised client Premiership Rugby on securing a multi-year title sponsorship partnership agreement with US insurance company Gallagher, confirming that England’s top-tier competition will be renamed for the next season.

The new agreement is set to cover naming rights, branding opportunities and local community programmes.

Mark McCafferty, chief executive of Premiership Rugby, said: “The international expansion of Premiership Rugby has been accelerated in recent years and it is fitting that we are now partnering with a global company with an equally strong presence here in the UK… The last decade has seen major growth in Premiership Rugby’s fan base and it is a huge credit to our clubs – and the way they have grown their businesses – that we can announce this new partnership.”

Gallagher Premiership Rugby will kick off on 3rd August.
