Wigan Warriors have today unveiled leading energy company npower as a major partner.
As one of Britain’s largest energy companies, and part of the Innogy SE group, npower serves around 5 million residential and business accounts with electricity and gas.
The new partnership means that fans will benefit from a series of exclusive customer offers, competitions and energy saving tips for their home and family. npower will also launch an exclusive tariff for Wigan fans in early 2018.
The partnership will look to support a range of community and sustainability initiatives which are important to fans, both within the local Wigan area and beyond.
Executive Director Kris Radlinski said,
“This is a significant partnership for the Wigan Rugby League Club, as well as for the game of Rugby League. It is also a clear statement of the commercial direction that the Club is going in.
“What is really pleasing from my perspective is that npower share our ambition and really understand the passion we have for our Club.
“This is a very exciting period for the Club. Over the last six months particularly, we have laid the foundations to meet our plans with more announcements to come.”
Dan Burton, Commercial Sales Manager at the Warriors, said:
“This partnership marks another significant step forward in the delivery of our commercial strategy.
“We understand what this great Club means to the people of Wigan; and our fans mean everything to us. Npower are an organisation who want to help us strengthen our important relationship with our fans and help us to make a positive impact on the local community.
“We are all very excited about the possibilities that this new relationship brings, and we really look forward to working with the npower team.”
Andy Wiggans, Commercial and Marketing Director at npower, said: “From the moment we met with Wigan, we saw common values and beliefs from the outset - their community-driven outlook and ambition to embrace innovation and change made them an ideal partner for us. We look forward to working together across community initiatives and customer initiatives.
“It is clear that Wigan have a genuine appreciation for their fans and their families. Here at npower, we are keen to celebrate families and make energy simpler for them so they can spend more time on doing the things that matter to them.”
The npower logo will feature on the shoulders of the Wigan jersey for the remainder of the 2017 season, making its debut at Wembley this week and throughout 2018.
