Wirquin is the proud sponsor of Doncaster Knights

Wirquin sponsors professional rugby team

Published:  11 July, 2014

Wirquin is now the main 2014/15 sponsor of Doncaster Knights Rugby Club. The company's name will feature on the front of the playing strip and in the club ground.

Gwenhael Le Coent, Wirquin's managing director and lifelong rugby fan, said: "This is a great opportunity to raise local brand awareness, to support the local community and to invite our clients to join us for action packed days out at the ground. There is a natural fit between the club and the company and lots of opportunities to work together and support each other."

Members of the Knights squad and management visited the Warmsworth plant to meet Wirquin staff and tour the facilities.

Commenting on the new deal, Knights general manager Neil Holmes said: "We are delighted to welcome Wirquin into the Castle Park family. They seem really enthusiastic about working with us to promote both the club and the company and have a very genuine interest in rugby."
