We specifically targeted brands keen to forge connections with affluent consumers and business owners, a demographic that forms a substantial part of the UK club rugby audience. This meticulous selection process guaranteed that our efforts harmonised perfectly with Saracens’ objectives and values.Conducted a full audit of their current sponsorship contracts and, with application of our market knowledge and experience, proposed a new commercial strategy and sponsorship programme. Ongoing succession planning for their incumbent National Team Sponsor, Digicel, was also a major consideration.
