Harper Macleod extend sponsorship until 2021
Leading Scottish law firm Harper Macleod has extended its sponsorship of Glasgow Warriors until 2021, which will see the partnership enter its sixth season.
The firm – which has offices in
Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness, Elgin, Lerwick and Thurso – has been part of the
Warriors set-up since 2015, becoming the
first title sponsor of a stand at Scotstoun by sponsoring the Harper Macleod
West Stand in 2017.
The stand will this season feature the #WestStandWarriors
hashtag, following a supporters’ vote last season.
In addition, the law firm is also the title sponsor of Harper
Macleod Club Deck, one of Glasgow Warriors’ cornerstone hospitality options at
Scotstoun on match day.

Managing Director Nathan Bombrys said: “Harper Macleod has been a vital
supporter of the team for the past four years and we’re absolutely delighted
that the firm has come on board for another two seasons.
“As all rugby fans know,
re-signing key people is often just as important as bringing in new faces. That
not only applies to those who represent the club and the city of Glasgow, but
also to what happens off the field. Harper Macleod is one of the biggest and
best-known names in the legal profession and it’s great to be associated with a
brand that is renowned as being a leader in their field.
“Not only have they been
loyal supporters of the club as we continue to grow, they have also been
incredibly active behind the scenes. They have hosted some great events and
encouraging supporters – particularly those from the Harper Macleod West Stand
– to get involved and we look forward to continuing our what is an incredibly
Martin Darroch, Chief Executive
of Harper Macleod, said: “Glasgow Warriors is now established as one of
Scotland’s top sports clubs, with only a very few football clubs having a
higher average attendance and even fewer a support that is so fervently behind
the team. Last year’s Guinness PRO14 Final was also a tremendous experience,
despite the narrow defeat, and the club has consistently produced results
throughout our association.
“However, those are not the
main reasons why we’ve decided to continue our support. The Warriors share our
driven culture of seeking constant improvement and never resting on previous
achievements. We’ve built up a fantastic relationship with the club and its
supporters over the past four years and this togetherness has made it a
positive relationship for both sides.”
As well as being keen supporters of Glasgow Warriors, Harper MacLeod is currently Official Legal Advisers to British
Athletics and last year was Legal Advisers to the Glasgow 2018 European
Championships, having previously carried out the same role for the Glasgow 2014
