The Rugby Football Union (RFU) today announced a new partnership with Killik & Co, one of the UK’s leading independent financial services groups, to become title sponsor for the upcoming England v Barbarians game.
The Killik Cup match on Sunday 27 May 2012 will be Stuart Lancaster’s first game as permanent Head Coach and will serve as a great preview of the team to tour South Africa in June. Lancaster will name his squad for the fixture on RFU.com today at 3.30pm.
Killik & Co have sponsored Barbarians games held at Twickenham since December 2009 and were Title Sponsor for the last game, Barbarians v Australia, in November 2011.
Paul Killik, Senior Partner, Killik & Co, expressed his enthusiasm for the firm’s continued involvement: “It is wonderful for us to be associated with the Rugby Football Union, especially at this exciting time under new management. We have been long supporters of the ethos and spirit of the Barbarians games and we are delighted to continue our title sponsorship of this prestigious event with the RFU.”
Sophie Goldschmidt, Chief Commercial Officer Rugby Football Union said: “Sophie Goldschmidt, Chief Commercial Officer Rugby Football Union said, “We are very pleased to welcome Killik & Co as a partner for what is always an entertaining match. It will be the first chance to see many of the players that England will be taking to South Africa, as the team looks to build on a very positive RBS 6 Nations.”
