London Irish has welcomed the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism to the club as an official partner.
The deal will see the Visit Cayman Islands logo appear on the Exiles’ match jerseys from this Saturday’s Gallagher Premiership clash against Gloucester at Kingsholm.
In addition, the brand will appear on the club’s matchday, social and digital assets, with community activation opportunities to be confirmed for the 2020/21 season.
London Irish CEO, Brian Facer, said: "We’re really pleased to welcome the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism to the club – it shows the strength of our brand that we’ve agreed such a significant deal in such testing times.
“The move back in town to Brentford is a momentous period in this club’s history and we really excited that they’ll be on board with us for the next chapter of our journey.”
A British Overseas Territory, the Cayman Islands are located in the western Caribbean Sea, south of Cuba and north west of Jamaica, comprising of three islands, each with its own personality, reflected by their residents and distinct landscapes – from the barefoot elegance of Grand Cayman, to the adventurous spirit of Cayman Brac and the tranquillity of Little Cayman.
Well known for dining, world-class diving, beautiful beaches, tranquil turquoise seas and incredible wildlife, the Cayman Islands offer a memorable and luxurious experience for visitors of all ages and interests. Visitors can watch the sun rise with the stingrays, explore spectacular coral reefs, relax on a beach hammock and eat at a five-star restaurant – all in one day.
Local Caymanians are no strangers to rugby either, with the Cayman Rugby Union a full member of World Rugby and Rugby North America.
Adrian White, Cayman Islands Department of Tourism UK & Europe Regional Manager, said: “We are delighted to partner with London Irish and their passionate fan-base at such an exciting time for the club.
“Sports tourism is a big growth opportunity for Cayman and we hope to entice London Irish supporters and all connected to the club to come and visit Cayman, enjoy our Caribbean hospitality and natural beauty and potentially come and play or watch some rugby.”
