Heinz BIG, Official Partner of Super League, will continue to back youth Rugby League in 2013 through sponsorship of the Under-16 and Under-18 sections of the Yorkshire Junior and North West Youth Leagues.
This year the restructured leagues will feature 113 teams across both age groups and regions during an exciting season which will culminate in a title-deciding Grand Finals day in October.
RFL Director of Participation David Gent said: “I am delighted that Heinz BIG are on board as title sponsors of the Conference Youth Leagues. “The competitions continue to go from strength to strength and feature the best Rugby League in these age groups anywhere in the country. It is fantastic to see such a well-known brand as Heinz BIG supporting Rugby League in England, both in the professional game and in the search for the stars of tomorrow.”
Chris Isaac, Brand Manager - Heinz BIG Soup, said: “We are extremely excited to be title sponsor of the Heinz BIG Conference Youth Leagues for another season. Sponsoring the leagues provides us with a great opportunity to nurture and support the development of some of the best Rugby League talent at Under-16 and Under-18 level, whilst filling them up with Heinz BIG post-match teas! I look forward to seeing some great fixtures this season in the fight for a place in the Grand Finals.”
As part of the agreement Heinz BIG will be supplying all competing clubs with equipment and post-match food during the 2013 season.
