The Famous Grouse has renewed its long-standing partnership with Glasgow Warriors, extending its official club sponsorship for the 2019/20 season.

Originally coming on board prior to the 2011/12 season, the new campaign marks the ninth time the brand has sponsored the Scotstoun side.

The Famous Grouse has sponsored Glasgow Warriors’ sole home pre-season fixture for two successive seasons; last season’s meeting with Harlequins in Perth will be followed by The Famous Grouse pre-season challenge against Ulster at Scotstoun this Saturday.

The Famous Grouse Bothy is also a staple of the Scotstoun hospitality options, which will continue over the course of the new season.

Glasgow Warriors managing director Nathan Bombrys welcomed the announcement, saying: “It’s great news that our partnership with The Famous Grouse will continue for the 2019/20 season.

“The Famous Grouse is Scotland’s favourite whisky and has been a loyal supporter of the Warriors as we’ve grown our story over the past decade. We look forward to another excellent season together.

“Last season’s The Famous Grouse pre-season challenge was a fantastic occasion with over 5000 spectators turning out to support us in Perth. We’re expecting another memorable occasion and large crowd at Scotstoun this weekend when we play Ulster.”

Gareth Brown, marketing director at Edrington-Beam Suntory UK, added: “We are very excited to bring The Famous Grouse pre-season challenge to Scotstoun for yet another season with Glasgow Warriors.

“As the UK’s number one whisky, we know the hard work and determination it takes to create great whisky, and this is synonymous with the resilience we see with the Glasgow Warriors team each season.

“This pre-season match against Ulster kick-offs what we hope will be another great season for Glasgow.”
