Melrose Rugby is pleased to announce that Cairnhill Structures is continuing as an important partner sponsor of the world’s oldest Rugby Sevens tournament, the Melrose 7s.
The engineering firm celebrates 40 years of innovation this year.
The newly expanded Melrose 7s tournament, being held at the Greenyards between Friday 9th and Sunday 12th April 2020, will officially kick off Cairnhill Structures’ 40th birthday celebrations.
The sponsorship deal will see Cairnhill Structures branding take pride of place, alongside Doddie Weir’s My Name’5 Doddie foundation, on the Melrose 7s team strip this year, and also on the Melrose 7s strip throughout the Scottish Borders 2020/21 Kings of Sevens tournament.
The main stand at the Greenyards will be named the Cairnhill Stand, with prominent branding, as part of the sponsorship.
Group Managing Director of Cairnhill Structures, Neil Watson, said: “Innovation is a key driver in everything Cairnhill does and so we are delighted to be involved with the Melrose 7s again this year, especially as the club has announced an innovative and inclusive new format to the event.
“The Melrose 7s is a prestigious event in the World Rugby calendar. Given the new all-weather surface that has recently been installed, I am sure we will see an exciting brand of rugby at the event.
“Our business has evolved well over the decades and we wish Melrose Rugby Club every success in its ambitions for the development of this world-famous Sevens tournament.
“We’re also honoured to be sharing sponsorship branding space on the Melrose 7 team shirts with Doddie Weir’s charity.”
Gordon Brown, chairman of Melrose Rugby Ltd, said: “We’re so pleased to have Cairnhill Structures on board as shirt and stand sponsors for the Melrose 7s.
“We can’t wait to put on a spectacular event that will deliver all the traditional elements that regular 7s supporters know and love, with new and exciting tournaments that will hopefully attract a whole new audience to Melrose in April.
“We’re sure the Easter weekend of rugby and entertainment will provide Cairnhill with valuable and high-profile branding opportunities and raise further awareness for Doddie’s MND foundation.”
