Leeds Brewery link up with Hunslet Hawks
Leeds Brewery have signed a deal to sponsor local rugby league team Hunslet Hawks for the 2012 season.
The sponsorship kicked off with the ‘Leeds Brewery Lazenby Cup’ pre season fixture between the Hawks and Leeds Rhinos at the South Leeds Stadium and will also see the brewery logo appear on both home and away shirts during the up coming campaign.
Brewery director Sam Moss commented; ‘It is great to be able to get involved with an historic local team at the heart of the Hunslet community. Hopefully this is the beginning of a long and succesful partnership’.
The sponsorship deal will also see a closer tie between the Hawks and Leeds Brewery’s Grade II* listed Hunslet pub The Garden Gate, which was saved from closure when the brewery purchased it in 2010.
