London Irish has signed a new sponsorship deal with the Norton business unit of software company Symantec.

The deal will see Norton become the club’s official security software partner, with the brand also appearing on the club’s playing shorts for all Aviva Premiership and European Rugby Challenge Cup fixtures.

The new partnership will also provide Norton additional branding rights around the Madejski Stadium, home of London Irish, and exclusive offers for season ticket holders.

Darren Henry, head of commercial at London Irish said: “We are delighted to have secured this important partnership with a truly global company in Symantec’s Norton brand. It is a major player within the security industry and has recognised the ambition we have as a Club. We look forward to sharing our exciting journey both on and off the pitch throughout the season.”

Nick Shaw, general manager EMEA at Norton added: “Our Norton Security products are built to perform under pressure for real people in real world situations, and there’s nothing more pressurised than rugby as a sport. For this reason, as well as their ambitious plans for the future, we are pleased to be working with London Irish and look forward to showing our support for the club – and its loyal supporters – throughout the season.”
