Emerald Group Investments – 2016 Official Broadcast Partner of the Intrust Super Shute Shield

April 29 2016 - Emerald Group Investments has further strengthened its support of the Intrust Super Shute Shield signing as 2016 Official Broadcast Partner.

Previously joining the broadcast in 2015 as the final series naming rights sponsor and foundation partner, Emerald Group Investments was one of the key companies which ensured this historic and important competition could make the switch to commercial television on 7TWO.

Rights holder and Intrust Super Shute Shield Director of TV Nick Fordham said today, “I once again must acknowledge and highlight the importance of our relationship with Emerald Group Investments and their Group CEO James Kennedy. Backing our strategy and vision last year and increasing their level of support this year is simply outstanding.

On behalf of every player, club, sponsor and fan we express our thanks to James for his support and commitment of arguably the greatest club rugby competition in the world.”

This year Emerald Group Investments has provided further support to the Intrust Super Shute Shield through securing additional sponsorship rights across its brand portfolio. LK Boutique is the Official Timekeeper; and leading audio visual brand Bang & Olufsen will support the Finals Series.

James Kennedy, Emerald Group Investments Group CEO said, “Emerald Group Investments is really pleased to be back again this year as the Official Broadcast Partner of the Intrust Super Shute Shield.  Emerald Group places significant support in the wider community, and partnering with Club Rugby at grass roots level is no exception.   We look forward to the continued growth and success of the Series into the future.”
