TALL Security Print backs the Vikings ahead of big 2017 season kick-off
A Runcorn-based printing company has thrown its weight behind Widnes Vikings’ quest to conquer the 2017 Betfred Super League. TALL Security Print’s logo will be emblazoned on the back of the rugby league team’s brand new alternative shirt, which was officially launched this month.
The company, based in Manor Park, secured the position after taking part in the ‘Vikings Grand Kit Lottery’ last summer with some 40 sponsorship positions on offer across both the 1st team, academy and support staff’s shirts.
The focus of the lottery initiative is to raise valuable funds for the Vikings Sports Foundation, the club’s affiliated charity, that aims to engage, educate and inspire the local community to bring about positive change and new opportunities for all through rugby league. The charity operates across five key areas: School Sport, Aspiration Centre, Vikings Health, Sport 4 All, and Vikings Learning Centre.
Each business that participated made a specified donation and then entered into the lottery draw with every entry drawn out rewarded with a branding opportunity for the 2017 season.
Widnes Vikings will kick off their 2017 campaign on Friday 10th February at home to Huddersfield Giants, before travelling away to Wigan Warriors a fortnight later.
Friendly rivalry at TALL Security Print
Brian Carney, Commercial Director at TALL Security Print, said: “Whilst there is a lot of friendly rivalry in our Runcorn site with fans of several local Super League sides, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity of this shirt sponsorship and the associated links to support our local community. Now in our 25th year of operation in Runcorn, we’re delighted to be developing our partnership with Widnes Vikings just across the River Mersey, especially as they prepare for another exciting season.”
