PTS gets behind England to support Rugby Super League

Published:  25 August, 2010

LEICESTER: Leading heating and plumbing merchant PTS is making a name for itself on Sky Sports by lending its support to the England Rugby Super League as it prepares to take on France in May 2011.

PTS has placed boards at a number of key games in the run up the international clash with an average audience of 40 000 a match.

The 12 metre rotating signs will be seen next to top teams including the Leeds Rhinos and Salford City Reds. This is the second time that PTS has been on Sky Sports this year, following its sponsorship of the Midlands leg of the famous PGA tournament in June.

Kelvin Stevens, PTS managing director, said: “Rugby League is one of the UK's most watched and exciting sports so we’re proud to be associated with the game. Sport is a particular passion within the plumbing and heating industry with golf being the traditional favourite. We wanted to try something different and as Rugby Super League is known for teamwork and local spirit we thought it fitted well with PTS’ values. This is a great opportunity for us to be seen in front of a whole new audience and next to leaders in the sporting field.”
