Two long-standing sponsors continue support in 2017

Two local business from the same group of successful companies will continue their long-standing relationship with the Robins next season after remaining as important sponsors in 2017.

Industrial Refrigeration Services (IRS) and AC Enviro Ltd have become the latest commercial partners to commit to supporting the club in the Kingstone Press Championship and will carry on as collar sponsors on the home and away shirts respectively.

Speaking to, co-owner and director Alex Moore said: “We’re delighted to be sponsoring the club once again next season.

“The home kit has recently been revealed and as a lifelong fan it’s a proud moment to see our company logo feature as part of a traditional Hull Kingston Rovers design and especially one that pays tribute to the great Roger Millward.

“It’s an important season for the club next year and we’re thrilled to be offering our support. We’d like to wish James, Dane and the rest of the squad the best of luck for 2017.”

Hull KR’s Head of Commercial Joe Clutterbrook said: “Both IRS and AC Enviro are long-standing kit sponsors and we’re pleased to be welcoming them on board once again for 2017.

“They are two examples of successful local businesses which have remained loyal to the club for a number of years. People like them are the backbone of the commercial department and it’s our job to harness those partnerships every season so they remain a key part of the club moving forward.”
