The Ospreys age-grade teams will feature a striking new look for the next two years after long-term commercial partner, the Cuddy Group, agreed a deal to feature on the front of the jersey.
Under the new deal the Cuddy Group logo will be worn by the U16 and U18 teams for this season and next, on a series of BLK playing strips based on the white, red, blue and black of the region’s four senior community clubs.
Mike Cuddy, Chairman at Cuddy Group and Director of Ospreys Rugby said:
“We are delighted to be sponsoring the youth of the Ospreys region. Since the formation of the Ospreys back in 2003, Cuddy Group and the Ospreys have developed a strong relationship and are thoroughly enjoying being part of the Ospreylian family.
“We are excited about the direction the Ospreys are taking especially with their investment in youth and community rugby in the region, and Cuddy look forward to supporting the teams in their upcoming fixtures.”
Yarnie Guthrie, Ospreys Commercial Manager, welcomed the support of Cuddy Group, saying:
“The future success of the Ospreys lies in the substantial ongoing investment we are making into out elite youth development pathway, so the support of a major Ospreylian business like Cuddy Group is not just welcome, it is essential.
“The Ospreys U18s and East and West U16s teams will certainly look the part in these new jerseys sponsored by Cuddy Group.”
Cuddy Group employs over 400 people across the Ospreylian region.
