Major outdoor power tool company STIHL GB is extending its sponsorship of Leicester Tigers ahead of the new season.

A Tigers partner since August 2014, STIHL will now have a patch on the team’s playing shirt as well as being the club’s official Garden Power Tool Supplier, with its products being used to maintain Welford Road stadium and the training ground.

STIHL is recognised worldwide for its tough outdoor power tools, used by anyone from the home gardener to farmers, foresters and builders, and professional groundskeepers like the team at Tigers.

Possibly best known as the world's No.1 selling chainsaw brand, the STIHL product range now spans petrol, Lithium-Ion cordless and electric outdoor power tools including grass and hedge trimmers, blowers, augers, power washers and more. All uphold the STIHL reputation for strength, performance, ease of use and longevity hard-working power, making them reliable partners whatever job they do.

Simon Hewitt, Head of Marketing at STIHL GB, said: "We’re really excited to extend our partnership with Tigers. Our brands and the people behind them are incredibly aligned and we believe that seeing the STIHL brand on the new Tigers strip will help emphasise our core values which include power, dependability and strength."

Tigers groundstaff are already using a range of STIHL products, including a STIHL blower to help clear debris and leaves and a powerful STIHL hedge trimmer, plus VIKING lawn tractor and mower. VIKING is part of the STIHL Group and its lawn tractors, petrol, electric and robotic mowers all feature the same robust product qualities as those of its sister STIHL brand.
