Connacht's head of commercial and marketing Alex Saul says the province are delighted to link up with leading fluid and transfer solution brand Pirtek.

Pirtek are set to become an official partner of Connacht from the start of next season - it will involve their logo appearing on the playing and training shorts along with the collar of the senior playing jerseys.

Saul believes it will be a fantastic partnership for Connacht as they continue to grow both as a team and as a brand.

"We're delighted to partner with Pirtek for the next two years. As an international brand and industry leader in fluid transfer solutions, they provide a level of service and individual approach that is second to none," he said.

"During our discussions, their professionalism and passion for Connacht Rugby has been impressive and we look forward to working with both their franchise team here in Galway and across Ireland to deliver an exciting and successful partnership."

Pirtek have a long-standing relationship with British Motorsport and sponsor 2013 BTCC champion Andrew Jordan.

This deal will be Pirtek's first venture into the Irish market and chief operating officer Mark Wilton is looking forward for what lies ahead.

"We are very excited about our new partnership with Connacht Rugby and can't wait for the new season to start," he said.

"We have already been lucky enough to be able to soak in the atmosphere at a few home matches and are really looking forward to the season ahead. Everyone at Connacht has been fantastic and we look forward to working with them."
