Capita Symonds will be the Main Sponsor for Bristol Rugby for the forthcoming 2009/10 season.

Previously involved with the club as Official Partner Sponsor since 2004, Capita Symonds employs around 150 people in two Bristol offices at Portishead and Clifton.

The company has played a key role on a number of major projects in the area in recent years, including Merchants’ Academy, Cabot Circus, Oasis Academy Bristol, SS Great Britain and Bristol University.

The new sponsorship deal will see Capita Symonds branding on the home and away shirt and official Bristol Rugby merchandise, as well as on banners and signage at the Memorial Stadium.

Mark Norris, Executive Director, Capita Symonds, said: “We are delighted to continue our relationship with Bristol Rugby this season as Main Sponsor. We wish coach Paul Hull and his team all the best for their Championship and British & Irish Cup campaigns this season.”

Bristol Rugby CEO Steve Gorvett commented: “Capita Symonds has had an involvement with Bristol Rugby for some time now, and it’s proved a valuable relationship for the Club. Everyone involved with the Club is excited about the forthcoming season and ready to get things going. With the shirt now unveiled and the our new Sponsor announced, we’re now set to get the season underway.”
