Scottish Rugby has extended its long-standing partnership with Gilbert Rugby. The sports equipment manufacturing company will continue its role as official ball supplier to Scottish Rugby.
The new deal will continue Gilbert’s association with the governing body, which covers the Scotland national team and professional clubs such as Edinburgh Rugby and Glasgow Warriors.
Gilbert has also been the exclusive supplier of balls to six consecutive Rugby World Cups, as well as the majority of major unions and tournaments worldwide.
Dominic McKay, the Scottish Rugby chief operating officer, said the body are happy to renew the partnership with a global brand that “is undoubtedly the world’s premier rugby ball manufacturer.”
“We look forward to continuing our fruitful relationship over the coming seasons and would like to thank Gilbert for their enduring support at all levels of rugby in Scotland,” McKay said.
