Fosroc named as title partner for Super6
Fosroc Constructive Solutions has today been named as the title partner of Scottish Rugby’s new part-time professional competition Super6 for its inaugural season.
This partnership deepens an already strong relationship with Fosroc, a leading international manufacturer and supplier of high performance chemicals for the construction industry, which is entering into its second season of sponsoring the Fosroc Scottish Rugby Academy.
Scottish Rugby’s Chief Operating Officer, Dominic McKay said: “I am delighted Fosroc is continuing to invest in the future of the game in Scotland and helping to develop Scotland’s pipeline of talent. It gives me great pleasure to welcome Fosroc into the Super6 competition which is now in a strong position ahead of its inaugural season beginning in November.”
Scottish Rugby Commercial Operations Manager, Al Kellock said: “Having Fosroc’s support of our Academy has been hugely beneficial to Scottish Rugby. The recent Scotland match against France saw the first academy graduate since their support began, Grant Stewart, win his first cap.
“Each Super6 team will have five players from the Fosroc Academy playing for them, which is designed to link the development of young players into the player pathway - Super6 gives these players a high level of competition within Scotland.”
“The Fosroc Super6 is really starting to take shape and this important new title sponsor adds to the already fantastic range of partners we have on board.”
The Fosroc Super6 will kick off on Friday 8 November. As well as a new title sponsor, other partners on board already include Gilbert, iPro Hydrate and BBC Scotland, as the the tournaments official ball, hydration and broadcast partners respectively. One game per round will be broadcast live each Sunday on Scottish Rugby TV and the BBC Sport website with the final being televised live on BBC Scotland.
Ian Watt, Fosroc’s Chief Executive Officer said: “Fosroc is excited to be the headline sponsor for the inaugural season of Super6 and believes it will play an important role in developing players and providing an opportunity for them to reach their full potential and progress in the game.
“Our decision to support the Scottish Rugby Academy last year was borne out of our desire to support young players in their rugby development and this thinking is now extended into Super6.
“We have been impressed with the commitment and passion of all the teams involved to embrace this new competition and their ambition to use it as a springboard to improve on and off the pitch.
“Super6 is an exciting new addition to the Scottish rugby calendar and we look forward to seeing the tournament unfold in the coming months and wish all the players and teams well.”
