Leicester Tigers and Mattioli Woods can announce a new three year partnership extension as the Leicester-based wealth management consultants continue as the club’s official wealth management and employee benefits partners.
Mattioli Woods will carry on branding Welford Road’s 3,000-seater East Stand as well as branding the back collar of the home and alternate Tigers shirt designs for the next three seasons.
With their new Leicester offices situated just half a mile from Welford Road, Mattioli Woods specialise in financial planning with investment and asset management, embracing pension consultancy, tailored investment solutions and property.
The company sponsor of one of the city’s most popular networking events ‘The Business Club’ held three times a year at Welford Road.
The likes of TV’s Ant Middleton, Sir Jeffrey Archer, Major General Jonathan Shaw and Lord Digby Jones have all held guest speaker spots, with more than 100 business leaders involved with each event.
Mattioli Woods are also behind the Rothely10k run which takes place across Leicester each year. Tigers players, staff and supporters have regularly got involved each with the likes of internationals Ben Youngs and Tatafu Polota-Nau helping to promote the event.
Andrea Pinchen, commercial director at Leicester Tigers, said: “Without the generous sponsorship and support of businesses our club would not be the success it is.
“Not only do Mattioli Woods sponsor our shirts and East stand, but players and staff also benefit by receiving invaluable financial advice. We thank them for their continued support.”
Ian Mattioli MBE, chief executive officer at Mattioli Woods, added: “Leicester Tigers is in our blood, we can see such dedication within all the team, and we hope the 2019/20 season will put the Tigers back to challenging for cups and league titles.
“We are delighted to be involved with a club whose passion extends beyond the rugby field into the wider community. We wish everyone; players, staff and Tigers dedicated supporters a great year.”
