The sponsorship has seen NIBE provide branded playing kits to the 400-strong club, which is run by volunteers. The NIBE-branded kits are worn not only by the First XV, but also across all 16 of the club’s teams, which include a ladies’ team and 13 youth teams.

As well as supporting the Panthers through sponsorship, NIBE has also offered to donate one of its market-leading renewable heating systems to help efficiently meet the extensive heating and hot water needs of its new clubhouse, due to open later this year.

Phil Hurley, managing director at NIBE, comments: “At NIBE we’re delighted to be sponsoring Chesterfield Panthers RUFC. It’s incredibly important for us to support our local community here in Chesterfield and we couldn’t think of a better way. We are huge fans of the club and proud to have our name on the players’ kits. We hope to be able to continue our support by helping to keep players and supporters warm with the installation of one of our units in the new clubhouse.”

The club is undergoing a major transformation this year, with its new home ground currently in the final stages of construction and set to be unveiled in time for the start of the new rugby season in September.

Graham Bell, relocation chairman at Chesterfield Panthers RUFC, adds: “We have invested more than £1.5 million into the new ground and facilities at Dunston Road. However, it is the generous support from organisations and companies like NIBE that has helped transform the sports and clubhouse facilities from the ordinary to the extraordinary.  We are very proud to have created a true community resource at Dunston Road and look forward to welcoming many more people to our new home.”

Ends.
