Premiership Rugby is delighted to announce Green Flag will become one of its official sponsors for the next two seasons.

The partnership will help the national breakdown provider raise awareness of its strength in local conurbations by delivering on-the-ground initiatives at all 12 Premiership Rugby clubs.

As part of the sponsorship deal, Green Flag will engage rugby fans through free motor 'health-checks' in club car parks, to help fans reduce the risk of breaking down. Free travel advice will also be offered in the form of real-time alerts, providing away fans with live travel updates to help them get to the game on time.

There will also be exclusive ticket competitions and giveaways held in association with local media partners, as well planned activity and useful information made accessible via online platforms.

Premiership Rugby will work with Green Flag to ensure the brand's message of "No Matter What” can be effectively delivered to the rugby community.

Mike Bowman, Green Flag director, said: "We are delighted to become an official sponsor of Premiership Rugby, continuing our proud tradition of supporting the best of British sport. We understand how important it is for fans to see their favourite sports and heroes and we know there is nothing worse than breaking down on the way to see your favourite team play. We hope this will raise further awareness of our commitment to getting people to their destinations, no matter what.”

Green Flag branding will be visible at Welford Road, starting with the Aviva Premiership game against Exeter on March 23.

Dominic Hayes, Premiership Rugby commercial director, said: "Our new partnership with Green Flag is a clear demonstration of the tremendous growth in interest in Premiership Rugby as we enter a golden era for rugby union in England.

"This season we have seen a huge rise in audiences on both ITV and BT Sport and, in addition to this, our online traffic and social media interaction are also at record levels.”

Activation of the sponsorship will be delivered by MediaCom Sport and sister agency MediaCom Beyond Advertising, the PR will be handled by Frank PR.
