Spring Hill College, a team transitioning to D1 as an independent, is excited to announce the team has signed on with Canterbury New Zealand as a new sponsor and apparel partner for the next three years.
The program was presented with multiple options of potential sponsors but due to Canterbury’s prestigious name and reputation of providing durable and reliable products, the team, along with the coaching staff partnered with Canterbury. “The products speak for them self,” explained freshman Nick Balante. “Canterbury is the name you think of when you see rugby. They provide incredible quality in what they make,” he continued.
“Having the prestigious Canterbury name behind our rugby program will not only help us with recruiting but bring our game to the next level. We are building a serious Division 1 program and this sponsorship is going to be a reward for our players’ hard work. We are extremely excited with this new partnership and can’t wait to see the quality Canterbury apparel on our players, staff, supporters and alumni,” said Head Coach Justin Goonan.
“Canterbury is thrilled to partner with Spring Hill College Rugby as the exclusive apparel supplier and sponsor. This sponsorship furthers Canterbury’s goal of promoting and partnering with select Men’s and Women’s collegiate programs in key regions across the nation. Canterbury’s aim is to help support and develop its partners through strong well established relationships and offering the world’s best rugby gear at a competitive price” said Canterbury North America Director of Sales Fraser Quarterman.
