Huddersfield Giants sign up 'Easy' associate sponsor ahead of 2018 season
A Yorkshire-based retailer has signed on as a Huddersfield Giants associate partner ahead of the 2018 season.
Bathroom and tile retailer Easy Bathrooms has been announced as a kit sponsor for the next 12 months at the Super League club.
As part of the new deal, the retailer’s logo will adorn the chest of the home claret and gold shirt, alongside the Giants’ ‘Birthplace of Rugby League’ symbol.
Easy Bathrooms was launched in 2012 by Huddersfield Giants fan Craig Waddington as a retail and trade supplier of bathroom and tile products.
With 16 stores across Yorkshire, the Midlands and Chester, the business now employs over 80 staff.
Brian Blacker, Giants’ commercial manager, commented: “We’re delighted to welcome Easy Bathrooms as an Associate Kit Partner. The business has been a long-term friend of the club and it’s great to see they’ve stepped up to be on the shirt for the first time.
“It’s always pleasing to welcome a new partner, but having a company with such a passion for what they do and our club is wonderful. They are expanding rapidly and I look forward to working closely alongside them in the future.”
Easy Bathrooms’ Huddersfield store is located on Saint Johns Road and welcomes customers to create a free 3D design of their project, with ArtiCAD software.
Craig said: “It’s an exciting time for us at Easy Bathrooms as we expand throughout the UK, so we’re really looking forward to what the next 12 months brings for both us and the club.
“I’ve been a fan of the Huddersfield Giants for all my life, so I’m proud to see our logo printed on the famous claret and gold. I hope the partnership will prove a delight for all involved and we can’t wait for the season to start.”
Giants ambassador Eorl Crabtree added: “It’s brilliant having Easy Bathrooms on the chest of the 2018 kit.
“I’m good friends with Craig Waddington and they’re big fans of the Giants, so it’s great to have such positive people around the club ahead of next season.”
