In recent years the Cornish Pirates have greatly appreciated the support of St. Austell Brewery, including at home games the company sponsoring the ‘Man of the Match’. This, the Pirates are delighted to confirm, will continue. However, there are three new innovations which are to be introduced starting from this coming season. Read on…
This new innovation offers businesses the opportunity to sponsor the actual numbers to be displayed on the shirts as worn by players on match days.
This fresh form of sponsorship has already proved very popular, as it will provide excellent business exposure. and helps raise valuable funds. Such sponsors will have their logo/name displayed in the space above the number, as shown on the sample image above, plus they will also be presented with ‘their’ numbered shirt and have a photograph alongside a player who wears it.

Thanks to new sponsors Ian Macleod Distillers Ltd, whose Glengoyne Distillery has signed a 3-year sponsorship with the Cornish Pirates, ‘Glengoyne’ will be sponsoring the ‘Try of the Match’ by providing a bottle of their excellent 12 Year Old single malt whisky, the winner to be chosen by Director of Rugby Chris Stirling.
In the unlikely event that no try is scored the bottle will be raffled and the proceeds go to the Cornish Pirates Players chosen Charity.
By the way, having previously mentioned shirt number sponsorship, it is also confirmed that Glengoyne will be sponsoring the Cornish Pirates No 12 shirt this season.
Finally (at least for the present!), thanks are also expressed to technology company ITEC, who these past couple of years have sponsored the hospitality marquee at the Mennaye Field. Now, for this final ‘new’ ITEC will donate 1 x HP product relating to each home game to whoever is adjudged to have made the best associated social media post reference such matches.
ITEC will also be one of our shirt number sponsors, it is confirmed that they will be sponsoring the Cornish Pirates No 7 shirt this season.
Commenting reference these innovations, Cornish Pirates’ COO Robin James has said:
It’s fantastic to see how well supported we are by all our sponsors and this season will see two players recognised every match for an outstanding performance. St. Austell Brewery will sponsor our Tribute man of the match as usual and Glengoyne will provide a bottle of their 12-year-old single malt whisky for the best try of the match.
We also look forward to continue rewarding our supporters. St. Austell Brewery will once again donate a replica purple away shirt to certain competition winners, plus, thanks to ITEC, a tech prize will be presented to the fan adjudged to have made the best social media post in a week leading up to each of our home games.
