PUBLISHED: January 20, 2014

Gilbert is proud to announce the renewal of the sponsorship of the Western Province Rugby Football Union and WP Rugby (Pty) Ltd.

This agreement continues to see Gilbert as the exclusive ball and equipment supplier to the WPRFU – including the WP Rugby Institute and the WP School of Excellence.

“Gilbert balls are virtually synonymous with rugby across the world, so it gives us great pleasure to continue our agreement with Gilbert – both in terms of balls and training ground equipment,” said WP Rugby (Pty) Ltd CEO, Rob Wagner.

“We look forward to continuing the association between Gilbert and WP Rugby – across senior and junior levels.”

Gilbert Brand Manager Damien Rudham commented: “The Western Province Rugby Football Union continue to be one of the most progressively thinking and professional organisations in
world rugby.

“Gilbert are excited to again be supplying WP with the very best products to help continue their growth on the field, as well drive the commercial and marketing aspects through the exclusive range of memorabilia products.”

This partnership, in conjunction with Gilbert’s agreements with SA Rugby, Rugby World Cup 2015 and other world leading rugby organisations, confirms Gilbert’s position as the ball and equipment brand of choice in the world of Rugby Union.
