Clarity Copiers, a long-term commercial partner of the Ospreys and a passionate supporter of grassroots sport, are sponsoring the Ospreys PS side and their logo is emblazoned across the chest of the new BLK jersey.
Warren Dryden, of Clarity Copiers, said:
“As a business with its roots in the Ospreys region we are committed to supporting the teams that truly represent our community. We already enjoy an excellent relationship with the Ospreys, and currently sponsor the first team socks this season, so the opportunity to get behind such a great new initiative as the Premiership Select squad was too good to miss.
“The Ospreys share our passion for the community and for grass roots sport, and we are delighted to sponsor the kit for a team that will truly represent clubs from all corners of the region this season.”
Wayne Hall, Sales Manager for Ospreys Rugby, said:
“We have an outstanding relationship with Clarity which has grown from very humble beginnings when they first enquired about taking a ground board at the Bridgend Ford Brewery Field. Not only are they are now an official supplier to the Ospreys, they are a key commercial partner and sponsor of our first team kit.
“Being on the front of the B&I Cup kit as sponsor of the Ospreys Premiership Select is a natural fit for a business that is passionate about local sport and the community. Long may this relationship continue.”
