Wadworth Sponsorship

The South West Divisional Organising Committee regret to announce that Devizes based brewer Wadworth will not be renewing its sponsorship of the English Clubs Championship Leagues in Dorset & Wilts, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire for next season.

Wadworth has been backing the competition for the past three seasons and the agreement was up for renegotiation this summer. However, with its pubs having been closed for the last few months and now only just preparing to re-open in the next couple of weeks the brewery has informed the South West that it will not be in a position to sign a new contract.

Over the last three years the company has provided financial support to Clubs and County Unions as well as the prizes to celebrate the Team of the Month awards during the season.

Wadworth Commercial Director Jonathan Thomas said “May I thank you, the committee, players and the staff at SW rugby for a wonderful partnership in recent years. It has been great working alongside you in a professional environment with a willingness to help each other out – A true partnership in the right spirit.”

David McAteer, chairman of the South West Divisional Organising Committee, added: “While it is sad our partnership is not continuing after the current three year agreement, the decision is totally understandable given the position the hospitality industry currently finds itself in. We have been very fortunate, and grateful, to have had their support over the past three seasons and we wish Wadworth all the best for the future.”
