Toshiba Carrier backs Sale Sharks

UK: Toshiba Carrier has become an official partner to Sale Sharks, one of Europe’s top professional Rugby Union clubs, for the 2023/2024 Gallagher Premiership Rugby season. 

Toshiba has a long history of supporting rugby having previously sponsored Rugby World Cups and the Japanese team. 

Toshiba’s sponsorship of Sale Sharks dates back to 2020 when it placed advertising on the club’s giant display screen. This new partnership will see Carrier and Toshiba’s distinctive branding take pride of place on the East Stand as well as on the shoulders of the players’ rugby shirts.

“We are thrilled to become an official partner of the Sale Sharks, a club close to our Stockport sales and technical support operations, and which shares our core company values of respect, inclusion and excellence,” said Toshiba Carrier UK MD David Dunn. 

Welcoming the partnership, Claire Butters, Sale Sharks’ sales and marketing director said, “Toshiba has been a huge supporter of the club over the years, and most recently helped us reduce our environmental footprint by installing a low global warming potential air conditioning solution in our gym.”
