Harlequins has announced that the Club has secured a new partner for its women’s team, Harlequins Women.
The multi-year sponsorship with leading asset management consultancy, MJ Hudson, sees the firm confirmed as the first official partner of Harlequins Women, with the side currently top of the Tyrrells Premier 15s.
As part of the agreement, Harlequins Women will play all matches with MJ Hudson’s brand on the back of the shirts.
Harlequins’ Commercial Director, Alex Goldschmidt said: “Harlequins is fully committed to creating a world class environment for its female athletes and ensuring that all those who pull on the Quarters are provided with the support they need to be the best athletes they can be. This exciting new Partnership very much reflects our long-term vision.
“The Club is proud of the full-time environment that we have created for our players, which not only includes elite-level on-field support but also the provision of development opportunities with its commercial partners. We very much look forward to working with MJ Hudson as we continue to grow the game and drive awareness and audience growth for women’s sport across the globe.”
Harlequins Women have won the first three of their opening fixtures in the 2019/20 campaign, with an emphatic 101-0 home victory against fierce rivals Richmond FC followed by an away win against Worcester Warriors Women and last weekend saw the side beat Gloucester-Hartpury at The Stoop.
Matthew Hudson, CEO of MJ Hudson said: “It’s fantastic to have the opportunity to support this incredible team of inspiring women. For those who have yet to experience it, the women’s game is fluid, fast and very exciting. We want to work with Harlequins to raise the profile of the sport and its players, especially as we approach the Rugby World Cup in 2021. We also greatly look forward to entertaining our clients and partners at The Stoop. Come On You Quins!”
Harlequins Women return to The Stoop on Saturday 19 October to face Bristol Bears Women. Matchday tickets and hospitality packages can be purchased online at tickets.quins.co.uk and hospitality.quins.co.uk.
