The ESRG Group recently announced a 3 year sponsorship deal with St Helens RFC, adding to its already significant and heartfelt support of sport in the North of England and throughout the UK.
The ESRG Group of companies deliver independent and integrated cross border financial structuring specialising in managing funds, and provide loan and equity investment for start-up to new and growing businesses.
Under the ESRG Group umbrella, ESRG Sport & Leisure focuses on transforming individuals, businesses, brands and organisations through the power of Sport. ESRG Sports & Leisure’s current investment portfolio includes Urban Fitness, Emerge Sports Management, Y – Sport, SportsMed Global, First Sport Management and Kicca. Capabilities within the group include Talent & Athlete Management, Sports Marketing, Activation, Events, Brand & Strategic Consultancy, Digital Marketing, Rights Representation & Sales, Sponsorship & Partnership Strategy, Digital, and CRM & Sports Technology.
Above and beyond the traditional investment in portfolio companies, The ESRG Group places a great value on supporting sports and sporting individuals, seen most recently through both the St Helen’s RFC sponsorship and that of the Darlington Mowden Park community project.
ESRG Sports & Leisure benefits greatly from its association with ESRG Group Ambassador Paul Sculthorpe MBE, legend of St Helen’s and GB Rugby League – a relationship which further enhances the three year tie-in with St Helens.
David Evans of ESRG, states “There are benefits for both business and the community. The ESRG sponsorship of St Helens RFC is a natural fit. We are very much looking forward to our 3 year association with the club and working on some exciting projects together.” With the company logo emblazoned on the team’s shorts, ESRG also aims to be a highly visible sponsor in terms of genuine commitment, support and collaboration with St Helens.
ESRG Sport & Leisure’s commitment to the Darlington Mowden Park Community Scheme is also for an initial three years. The sponsorship, which commenced in February 2015, has already started to see significant investment made into an array of community projects across Tees Valley and County Durham, which will benefit the club itself and the local region. It marks another substantial success for Darlington Mowden Park, who are continuing to attract and engage companies of the highest calibre to the area; ESRG is delighted to be a part of such a wide reaching, ongoing series of projects.
