Harper Macleod extend sponsorship until 2021
Leading Scottish law firm Harper Macleod has extended its sponsorship of Glasgow Warriors until 2021, which will see the partnership enter its sixth season.
The firm - which has offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness, Elgin, Lerwick and Thurso - has been part of the Warriors set-up since 2015, becoming the first title sponsor of a stand at Scotstoun by sponsoring the Harper Macleod West Stand in 2017.
The stand will this season feature the #WestStandWarriors hashtag, following a supporters' vote last season.
In addition, the law firm is also the title sponsor of Harper Macleod Club Deck, one of Glasgow Warriors' cornerstone hospitality options at Scotstoun on match day.
Announcing the move ahead of The Famous Grouse Pre-Season Challenge against Ulster on Saturday, Glasgow Warriors Managing Director Nathan Bombrys said: “Harper Macleod has been a vital supporter of the team for the past four years and we're absolutely delighted that the firm has come on board for another two seasons.
"As all rugby fans know, re-signing key people is often just as important as bringing in new faces. That not only applies to those who represent the club and the city of Glasgow, but also to what happens off the field. Harper Macleod is one of the biggest and best-known names in the legal profession and it's great to be associated with a brand that is renowned as being a leader in their field.
"Not only have they been loyal supporters of the club as we continue to grow, they have also been incredibly active behind the scenes. They have hosted some great events and encouraging supporters - particularly those from the Harper Macleod West Stand - to get involved and we look forward to continuing our what is an incredibly valued partnership."
Martin Darroch, Chief Executive of Harper Macleod, said: "Glasgow Warriors is now established as one of Scotland's top sports clubs, with only a very few football clubs having a higher average attendance and even fewer a support that is so fervently behind the team. Last year's Guinness PRO14 Final was also a tremendous experience, despite the narrow defeat, and the club has consistently produced results throughout our association.
"However, those are not the main reasons why we've decided to continue our support. The Warriors share our driven culture of seeking constant improvement and never resting on previous achievements. We've built up a fantastic relationship with the club and its supporters over the past four years and this togetherness has made it a positive relationship for both sides."
As well as being keen supporters of Glasgow Warriors, Harper MacLeod is currently Official Legal Advisers to British
Athletics and last year was Legal Advisers to the Glasgow 2018 European
Championships, having previously carried out the same role for the Glasgow 2014
