Harper Macleod has served up a deal with Guinness Pro12 champions Glasgow Warriors to become an official sponsor of the club.

The deal sees Harper Macleod become the title sponsor of the Club Deck for all home matches, at the Warriors’ Scotstoun Stadium home.

The Warriors’ next home match – a crucial European Rugby Champions Cup encounter against World Player of the Year Dan Carter’s Racing 92 on 23 January - has been moved to Kilmarnock and Harper Macleod will sponsor the hospitality at Rugby Park.

Harper Macleod chairman Professor Lorne Crerar, who acted as a Judicial Officer at last year’s Rugby World Cup Final, said: “Our Sponsorship of the Commonwealth Games was such a massive success for the firm that we have been keen to build on its legacy and this announcement is a big part of that.”

Glasgow Warriors managing director Nathan Bombrys said: “We’d like to welcome Harper Macleod on board as an official sponsor of the club.

“They are a leader in their field with a track record of success and we’re sure they will be an excellent addition to our sponsor family as title sponsor of our Club Deck hospitality suite.

“Harper Macleod is a firm who were heavily involved in Glasgow 2014 and we’re delighted that they have chosen Glasgow Warriors to build on the legacy of the Commonwealth Games.”

Martin Darroch, chief executive of Harper Macleod, added: “We’ve watched first hand as the Warriors have become leading players both on and off the field, with their success story not unlike our own rise to be one of Scotland’s top independent law firms - that’s why this partnership makes such great sense on both sides.”

As official sponsors of the club, the investment will see the Harper Macleod Club Deck welcome around 200 guests at each match, with the firm also featuring in pitchside advertising at all Guiness Pro12 home matches.
