Specsavers is delighted to be the official partner of the match officials for the Rugby League World Cup 2013.
The tournament features the best rugby league nations in the world and is being held in England and Wales. The action gets under way Saturday 26 October when England take on Australia at the Millenium Stadium, Cardiff.
Richard Holmes, Specsavers marketing director said: ‘This sponsorship builds on our existing sporting pledge to help the experts to see. Technological advancements in recent years have certainly helped match officials but we’re glad to do our bit where we can to help ensure that they get the best possible support to do their job.’
Rugby League World Cup 2013 tournament general manager, Sally Bolton said: ‘It is fantastic news to welcome Specsavers as a partner of Rugby League World Cup 2013. They are a perfect match for sponsorship of the RLWC2013 match officials. We are excited about making the most of the partnership as we continue to the countdown to Rugby League World Cup 2013.’
The partnership follows Specsavers’ sponsorship of the match officials on the British and Irish Lions tour of Australia and Hong Kong earlier this year. Specsavers also sponsors Scottish Football Association match officials, which in a partnership spanning nearly 11 years has helped in the training of 2,500 match officials. Additionally, Specsavers sponsors the RaboDirect PRO12 rugby league and the Irish Ladies GAA in the Republic of Ireland.
