The Rugby League Varsity Match has announced Pcubed as its headline sponsor in 2017, the 19th successive year the project management consultancy has supported the match between the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge.
The game, the 39th annual fixture, has become one of the largest in the Oxbridge sporting calendar and is returning the Honourable Artillery Company in the City of London on Friday 3 March. It will likely see players take to the field who were not born when the longstanding relationship first began.
The announcement was made by the event’s director, Mark Ramsdale. He said “On behalf of both clubs, we are grateful for Pcubed’s ongoing support. The event has grown and developed to become an outstanding sporting day in the heart of London in recent years, and it would not be possible without Pcubed.”
Richard Siddle, Pcubed’s UK General Manager, spoke about the relationship. “Pcubed are proud to once again support the Rugby League Varsity Match. It showcases our own ideologies of collaboration and hard work, and – given we are supporting for a 19th year – dedication. It is a wonderful day of sport between two great rivals with a long and often ferocious history. We’re already looking forward to another fantastic Battle of the Blues.”
