Award-winning Midlands commercial property specialist Bromwich Hardy has signed a new deal to be main shirt sponsors for Kenilworth Rugby Club this season.

The deal builds on a 20-year association between Bromwich Hardy and the club, which opened its new Midlands 1 West season with a win at home to Whitchurch – their first match in more than 500 days.

Bromwich Hardy founding partner Tom Bromwich said he was delighted to continue to support the club, which had a proud community tradition dating back nearly 100 years.

“We have been an active part of the club for the last two decades and believe that their values of playing and working hard, supporting the community and always respecting the traditions of the game, very much reflect our own ethos.

“After such a long time without any action on the field, it was tremendous to see the first team take to the Glasshouse Lane pitch for the first time since the pandemic started – and even better to see them win.

“But the club is about much more than just the success of the first team and it is their commitment to helping people of all ages and backgrounds enjoy rugby and the values it teaches which we most admire.”

Kenilworth director of rugby Jai Purewal said Bromwich Hardy’s long-running support was hugely appreciated by everyone connected with the club.

“Bromwich Hardy have been great supporters of the club for very many years and it is a pleasure to be continuing that relationship into the new season. After the challenges of the pandemic it is terrific to be back on the pitch again, and we are extremely grateful for the support which Bromwich Hardy continues to give us.”
