Mitsubishi Motors Sponsored Teams In Two Twickenham Finals On Saturday

Mitsubishi Motors sponsored Premiership rugby team, Bristol Shoguns, are flying high after reaching Twickenham twice on one day.

The Shoguns play at Twickenham on Saturday 8th June in the Zurich Championship final against West Country rivals Gloucester, kick off 3pm. The Premiership team's U21s side, who picked up their consecutive league title this year, will also be playing in their respective Championship final against London Wasps at 12.30pm.

Jack Rowell, managing director at the Shoguns commented: "The Mitsubishi Motors sponsorship deal announced a year ago gave the Club a massive boost at the beginning of a very competitive season.

"We set ourselves three main goals for this season. One of which was to build a box office team challenging for honours, and Mitsubishi has played a vital role in this. Coupled with a superb end of season performance, Saturday's trip to Twickenham has given the city of Bristol and its supporters a big boost that we will build on for next season."

Mitsubishi Motors UK Managing Director Jim Tyrrell added, "when we announced our five year multi-million pound sponsorship contract with the Club a year ago we looked upon our association with Bristol as a long-term venture. Recent form has proved the club does have real potential for the future and Saturday's double final at Twickenham is just the start. For the Mitsubishi Motors brand to be promoted in Europe next season by the Shoguns in the Heineken Cup competition, just shows how sponsorship and sport compliment each other".
