Exeter’s winning form reaps sponsorship reward
The natural juice company Frobishers has confirmed its continued support of Aviva Premiership rugby union team Exeter Chiefs.
Under terms of the new deal the logo of the local juice company will feature on the back of the club's playing shirts for the duration of the 2010/11 Aviva Premiership season.
Additionally Frobishers has taken up sponsorship of Exeter winger Mark Foster who helped the team get off to a flying start in the new season by scoring the club's first ever Premiership try in their 22-10 win over rivals Gloucester at the weekend.
Nick Sprague, founder of Frobishers parent company Cobell, said, ""We're so proud to continue our involvement with the Chiefs at such an exciting time for the club, especially after the weekend win against Gloucester. There is a fantastic buzz around the city and with rugby being such a great spectator sport for all the family, it makes perfect sense for Frobishers to be an ongoing part of the celebrations. We'll be living every ruck, scrum and line-out with the players and wish them every success for the coming season."
The Chiefs' next game sees them take on Premiership champions Leicester Tigers at Welford Road.
