London Irish is delighted to confirm that Critical Metals PLC will become the Principal Partner of the Club from the start of the 22/23 campaign with their CEO, Russell Fryer personally supporting the Club.
Critical Metals is a London Stock Exchange listed company formed to identify and acquire brownfield mining opportunities in the strategic metals sector, one of significant importance with the increased environmental agenda globally where the use of electric vehicles and renewable energy sources is ever more critical.
Critical Metals were affiliated with the Club previously, during the 2019/20 season, and their CEO Russell Fryer is a long-standing supporter and friend of the Club.
“Everyone at Critical Metals is excited to continue and ultimately expand our relationship with London Irish,” said Russell Fryer, CEO of Critical Metals.
“Being Principal Partner, with our logo on the front of the London Irish jersey, is something I am incredibly proud of, and I hope all current and future Critical Metals shareholders should be incredibly excited about.”
“We look forward to seeing the team run out at the Gtech Community Stadium and supporting Declan and his squad throughout what I am sure will be an exciting campaign!”
“The Club is delighted to welcome Critical Metals to the London Irish family, as Principal Partner,” said Mark Bensted, London Irish CEO.
“It’s an exciting time at London Irish and our team at Hazelwood are looking forward to working closely with Russell and his team!”
The Club is very grateful to Powerday for its front of shirt sponsorship over the last 11 years and for its continuing support in what promises to be a very exciting future for the Club.
