Club announces exciting partnership with Toogood International

Bristol Bears are delighted to enter into an exciting new partnership with Toogood International ahead of the 2018/19 season.

The Bristol-based courier services will feature as main sponsors on the front of the club’s home and away strips, as Pat Lam’s men set their sights on the Gallagher Premiership.

An express European courier service specialising in collection and delivery for the automotive, aerospace and pharmaceutical industries, Toogood International is one the city’s leading companies.

The partnership with Bristol Bears is the most substantial commercial agreement in the club’s history, laying the foundations for a bright future ahead for both organisations.

Bristol Sport chief commercial officer Caroline Herbert said: “We’re delighted to forge this relationship with a reputable international brand such as Toogood International.

“To have roots in the city and a strong alignment to Bristol is hugely important to us and – like the Bristol Bears – Toogood International has aspirations and an ambitious reputation to expand into overseas markets.”

“The club’s rebrand shows a new direction and a clear appetite to achieve success at the highest level – those values are matched by our own ethos to be relentless in the pursuit of success through innovation and humility."
