Bath Rugby raise glass to renewed partnership with Thatchers

5 May 2016

Bath Rugby is delighted to announce the renewal of its long-standing partnership with Thatchers Cider.

Like Bath Rugby, the fourth-generation cider makers are part of Somerset’s much loved heritage. Thatchers are ingrained in the Club’s matchday experience, and the renewed partnership will see an increase in the brand’s presence at the Recreation Ground – one that already includes the Thatchers Stand – whilst the logo will continue to be emblazoned on the back of the match jerseys.

Commenting on the partnership, Tarquin McDonald, Managing Director of Bath Rugby, said: “Our relationship with Thatchers is one that we’re very proud of, so we are thrilled to be continuing our association with them. Thatchers play a significant role in the Club and nowhere is that more evident than at the Rec on matchday, where many of our supporters love watching the rugby with a great pint of cider.”

Martin Thatcher, fourth-generation cidermaker and Managing Director of the family-run company, added: “Being a supporter and partner of Bath Rugby is a privilege. We share similar values and have made many good friends within the Club. We are delighted to be continuing our partnership into next season.”

Thatchers will be hosting a special matchday sampling of their new cloudy cider Thatchers Haze on the outfield at the Rec on Saturday 7th May, as Bath take on Leicester Tigers in their final game of the season.
