Player Sponsor BBQ 2017/18

Some of the region’s top businesspeople and country’s elite sportsmen came together for a networking event at Broadstreet Rugby Club, Wasps’ training ground.

Members of Wasps Player Sponsorship Programme were treated to a barbecue while being hosted by the likes of England internationals Joe Launchbury, Elliot Daly and Nathan Hughes.

Around 40 business people from national names such as Mark Allen Exhibitions and Gaucho Restaurants were in attendance, as well as local companies such as Coventry-based CAD CAM Automotive and Birmingham’s Tinker Taylor. After having lunch with their sponsored player, visitors were taken on a behind-the-scenes tour and watched the squad in action.

James Wootton, Head of Hospitality Sales at Wasps, said: “The barbecue was a great way for the club and players to thank the business community for their support.

“We had businesses from all over the UK in attendance on the day, which shows the strength of the sponsorship programme and how far and wide the club’s support is.

“The Wasps Player Sponsorship Programme is a fantastic way for people to advertise their business on the big screen and in the match day programme to thousands of rugby fans every other week, while being able to enjoy access to numerous exclusive Wasps events such as the end of season awards.”
