The RFL have confirmed that Kingstone Press will be extending their sponsorship of rugby league in 2015.
The cider manufacturers have sponsored the Championships for the last two years, and they will now be involved at every level of the game from the community set-up right up to the England squad.
The company will continue in its role as title sponsors of the Championship and League One competitions in 2015.
But they will also become an official partner of the Super League and the Challenge Cup.
“We are delighted with how Kingstone Press has become a major supporter of rugby league,” said RFL chief operating officer Ralph Rimmer said.
“They have been recognised by clubs and fans alike for having a genuine interest in developing the game and engaging with the Rugby League community, which is why we were keen to involve them in every level of the sport.
“This is the first time any partner has had this breadth of involvement and we are excited about what is going to be achieved.”
Kingstone Press Cider is part of Aston Manor Cider, the largest independent cider maker in the UK.
and Managing Director said: “Our involvement in Rugby League has been enormously successful for our Kingstone Press brand. It is an authentic sport with a passionate following and bright future – so the parallels for us are very clear,” said Kingstone Press managing director Gordon Johncox.
“At every stage our engagement with the RFL, England squad, clubs and fans has been positive because they have understood we are as committed to Rugby League as they are. So when we got the chance to extend our partnership it was an easy decision to make.
“To be the first business and brand to be involved at every level of the sport is terrifically exciting as are the opportunities it creates for us, our customers and consumers.
