Jacuzzi® have signed a major sponsorship deal as the new Elite Performance Partner to Hull FC – one of the oldest clubs in rugby league. As one of the most exciting and significant partnerships in Hull FC’s 155- year history, the global manufacturer and distributor of whirlpool baths, hot tubs, swim spas and saunas will become integral club partners both on and off the field throughout the 2020 Betfred Super League season and beyond. Alongside local showroom and distributor Outdoor Living, the largest Jacuzzi® hot-tub retailer in Europe, the partnership will see Jacuzzi® take the naming rights to the club’s firstteam training ground, the Jacuzzi® Elite Performance Centre that includes the installation of a state-of-the-art hot tub to aid the daily recovery and performance of members of the first team squad.
“WE HAVE HAD A LONG AND SUCCESSFUL HISTORY OF PARTNERING WITH ATHLETES”
MAN OF MATCH
Club supporters will have already noticed the Jacuzzi® logo adorning the club’s brand-new 2020 warm-up jersey, worn by the players ahead of every first-team fixture. The elite performance story also takes centre stage during the games, with supporters able to vote for the Jacuzzi® Man of the Match at every Hull FC fixture. Speaking to hullfc.com, Outdoor Living founder and joint-Managing Director Paul Margerison said: “I’ve been a Hull FC fan all my life, born near the Boulevard, so to continue this partnership and to see the support of a brand like Jacuzzi® is great for a fan of the club. “We have enjoyed a great year to date with Hull FC and our relationship goes from strength to strength. Jacuzzi® have embraced the partnership and are keen to explore expanding the relationship even further.”
“OUR RELATIONSHIP GOES FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH. JACUZZI® HAVE EMBRACED THE PARTNERSHIP”
Andy Bewicke, Business Development Director for Jacuzzi® in the UK said: “We have had a long and successful history of partnering with athletes and professional teams from around the world, and this partnership provides a fantastic opportunity to show the world of Super League how we can help at the highest levels of the sport. “Our goal is to support the Performance Team at Hull FC to help players recover more effectively, and in turn drive their performance on the pitch. We have developed a brilliant relationship with the club and we’re looking forward to supporting the long-term aspirations of Hull FC and its fans.”
