Gilbert signs up Dragons

Gilbert has agreed a major sponsorship deal with Newport Gwent Dragons.

The deal will see Gilbert providing training and playing kit for the Men of Gwent for the next three seasons. The new home and away shirts were launched at the Newport base of headline sponsors Motorpoint on 14 July.

The deal with the Dragons is Gilbert’s first major kit sponsorship deal in the northern hemisphere.

“We are very pleased to have Gilbert on board at Rodney Parade,” says Dragons’ director, Jim McCreedy.

“They are a company who have proven their reputation through providing balls for rugby’s biggest tournaments and as kit suppliers in South Africa. We are delighted to become Gilbert’s first top-flight partner in the northern hemisphere.”

Gilbert sales and marketing director Richard Gray states: “Everyone at Gilbert is delighted and very proud to have been selected by the Dragons as their kit supplier.

“The appointment confirms the considerable progress made by Gilbert in recent years in apparel in terms of technology, design, service and delivery.

“The Gilbert team have been working hard to ensure that the reputation enjoyed by the Gilbert ball is replicated on all its products – not only for the Dragons but at every level of the game.

“We wish the team every success for next season and look forward to working closely with the club in future.”
