Vitality to sponsor showpiece matches
Saracens showpiece matches at Wembley and the Honourable Artillery Company will be sponsored by PruHealth and PruProtect with Vitality, the healthy living programme.
Both the Derby Day clash between Saracens and Harlequins at Wembley on Saturday 22 March and the game between Saracens and Gloucester at the HAC, in the heart of the City of London, on Thursday 15 May will be known as the Vitality Rugby Challenge, incorporating a series of events and initiatives to enhance both occasions.
Nigel Wray, Saracens chairman, said: “These matches are unique in their own ways – the Wembley match may well attract the largest crowd to watch any rugby match ever played in England, and our games at the HAC have now become sell-out, calendar events within shouting distance of Moorgate. We are delighted to welcome PruHealth and PruProtect with Vitality as match day sponsors.”
Neville Koopowitz, CEO of PruHealth, said: “This exciting Partnership with Saracens further extends our association with elite sports teams and sports people, who exemplify the benefits of health through sport. As the world’s largest incentive based wellness programme, Vitality encourages people to live a healthy lifestyle and looks to provide new ways of inspiring and motivating them, and so we are delighted to be associated with the Saracens."
