Scottish Rugby signs deal with Guinness ahead of autumn Tests
Date Posted: 03/11/10
Guinness is joining Scottish Rugby as an official partner, providing a timely boost for the country's team ahead of their three autumn tests.
The brand, which is part of Diageo Great Britain, also announced sponsorship deals with the Rugby Football Union and Premiership in England, along with the Wales Rugby Union.
"A pint of Guinness with your friends is the perfect accompaniment to a game of rugby and has been for a long time now," said John Roscoe, marketing director of the firm.
Those booking Edinburgh hotels will be able to see their team in action when Scotland takes on three southern hemisphere teams in a trio of autumn matches.
On Saturday September 13th, Scotland will host New Zealand, before welcoming South Africa to Murrayfield a week later.
They will then go on to play Samoa at Pittodrie, which will give players a chance to stake their claim for a place ahead of the upcoming Six Nations tournament.
