English Super League rugby team Castleford Tigers have renewed their sponsorship deal with the GMB trade union, extending the current partnership to over a decade.

The one year extension with the union, which has over 600,000 members, will see its logo featured on the chests of the team's playing shirts and on the back of matchday tickets for the 2014 season.

Castleford Tigers commercial manager Richard Pell, said of the deal: ‘It's important that our existing sponsors continue to see value and a return on their investment and it speaks volumes for the strength of our relationship that GMB have committed to a new deal which will take them into their eleventh year with club.’

No financial details were released by the Tigers, who finished 12th in the 2013 Super League standings.
