Shearings has renewed its partnership with Wigan Warriors for 2019 - and will become the rugby league side’s official travel partner too.
Launched last year, the deal saw Shearings’ branding placed on the back of the Warriors players’ shirts, and around the team’s DW Stadium.
The first year of the partnership aimed to bring the two teams closer, through office visits and the operator’s staff Summer Spectacular.
This year, the Shearings.com branding will be emblazoned across players’ shoulders.
And besides becoming the club’s official travel partner, there will be more staff and fan interaction, community engagement activities and collaborative events.
Jane Atkins, Shearings Holidays managing director, said: “The players and management team have been really supportive and engaged with the staff at our Wigan head office through regular visits and events we’ve held.
“Many of our staff are big fans of Wigan Warriors and being able to have some of the players visit the business and talk to our teams has been amazing. We look forward to developing the relationship further in 2019.”
Kris Radlinksi, Wigan Warriors executive director, added: “Over the last 12 months, we have worked very closely with the team at Shearings where we have established a very strong working relationship.
“From the moment we met and gained their support for this season, it was evident this was going to grow into a very positive partnership and we are delighted to retain their support going forward.
“With their head office around the corner from the stadium, Shearings are a proud Wigan based company with a very passionate Wigan Warriors fanbase within their workforce and importantly to us, strong community links.
“We look forward to building on what has been a fantastic relationship to date and providing even more opportunities for the club’s fans and their staff.”
