Thatchers Cider Partners With Bristol Rugby For Premiership Return

Bristol Rugby and Ashton Gate Stadium have paired up with Thatchers Cider ahead of the 2016/17 Aviva Premiership campaign.

Thatchers will feature on Bristol Rugby’s home and away shirts, as well as Bristol Rugby Ladies’ matchday kit.

From August 6th, football and rugby fans alike can enjoy Thatchers Gold, Haze and Dry on draught, throughout the ‘new’ Ashton Gate Stadium. Meanwhile, Thatchers will also become the official Man of the Match partner for the Premiership rugby side.

“Thatchers have been a long-term partner of Bristol Sport. We’re pleased to see that relationship develop and extend to Bristol Rugby’s iconic home and away shirts,” Bristol Sport CEO Andrew Billingham said.

“With Bristol Rugby back in the top flight and the ‘new’ Ashton Gate Stadium on the brink of completion, it’s a hugely exciting time for the club and our commercial partners.”

Martin Thatcher, fourth generation cidermaker at Thatchers Cider, added: “The rugby club is a big part of Bristol’s sporting fabric and we’re pleased to share their long-awaited return to the Premiership.

“At Thatchers, we value our heritage and our customers, which is why we’re delighted to bring our range of ciders to the passionate supporters of both Bristol Rugby and Bristol City at Ashton Gate.”
