YC Business Solutions has renewed its sponsorship of Darlington Mowden Park Rugby Football Club for another year.
As part of the deal, which is worth more than £25k, the Yarm-based business IT, software and telecommunications specialist will continue to be the rugby club’s technology partner.
This consists of improving the IT facilities at the Northern Echo Arena, ensuring better communications for fans, visitors and business tenants at the stadium.
During their first year of sponsorship, the IT company installed a new phone system to provide facilities in the arena’s media centre for visiting journalists, ahead of the England Under 20s and England Women’s rugby matches in March 2015.
The firm also installed a new wireless network at the arena providing guest Wi-Fi for fans in time for the visit of the New Zealand rugby team earlier this month.
Andy Flisher, YC Business Solutions Director, said: “Our sponsorship is about helping the club become a more commercial enterprise.
“By providing state-of-the-art-communications and technology which fans and journalists have come to expect at top stadiums, then the club is much more likely to attract more England representative games and other major events in the future.”
Flisher continued: “Our programme for the second year of our sponsorship will focus on continuing to support the club’s forward thinking attitude toward embracing modern technology by improving facilities for business use at the arena, and helping to attract more tenants and business events, as part of the club’s ambitious growth plans.“
Lee Rust, Mowden Park RFC Managing Director, added: “We are delighted with the new facilities and support which YC Business Solutions has provided us so far and we look forward to continuing to work with them on the next phase of improvements at the arena.“
