London Scottish is delighted to announce Deutsche Bank as official match sponsor of Saturday’s historic Greene King IPA Championship play-off semi-final match against Worcester Warriors at Richmond Athletic Ground, 1.45pm kick-off.
Deutsche Bank is the main sponsor of London Scottish and has been a long-standing partner of the Club since 2010.
As well as supporting London Scottish’s rise up the English leagues, providing vital financial support, Deutsche Bank’s partnership has also extended to the development of one of the Bank’s most impressive and successful Born to Be programmes – Game Changers – which uses rugby to help disengaged boys fulfil their potential, turn around negative attitudes and disruptive behaviour.
Now in its third year, the programme, run at Richmond Athletic Ground, works with 24 students aged 13-14 referred from west London schools where they are at risk of exclusion.
Over an eight-week period at the beginning of 2015, the combination of regular rugby sessions and classroom activities developed the confidence, motivation and social skills of these students at a vital stage of their personal development.

Deutsche Bank's Colin Grassie, Chief Executive Officer of the UK and member of the Group Executive Committee said: “Deutsche Bank is extremely proud to be official match sponsor for one of London Scottish’s most important matches in recent times.
“The progress London Scottish has made over the past few years has been incredible and it has been a privilege to have been part of the journey since 2010.
“We wish the players and coaches all the very best of luck on Saturday.”
London Scottish Chief Executive, Kenny Baillie, said: “I would like to thank Deutsche Bank for their continued sponsorship of London Scottish and for coming on board as the official match sponsor for Saturday’s play-off match against Worcester Warriors.
“Deutsche Bank is a fantastically loyal partner and without their support during the past five years, the Club would not be in the position they are now – competing at the top echelons of England’s second tier once again.”
