Pontypridd RFC have signed a new deal with leading independent Welsh broker, Antur Insurance.
Antur has won the contract to provide all insurance cover for the Premiership club including their Property, Combined Liability and Directors’ and Officers’.
The partnership also means that other local clubs and associations can benefit from various insurance ‘affinity’ packages which can raise funds for the clubs.
Former Wales rugby captain Paul Thorburn, who is business development consultant for Antur Insurance, said: “To establish this link with undoubtedly one of Wales’s leading and most recognisable rugby brands is a real coup for Antur.
“As a broker we have a strong interest in the sports scene across South Wales, having supported local rugby, football, cricket and golf clubs over the years.
“Following the recent investment received from the CCV Group, it is an exciting time for Antur Insurance as we move towards becoming one of the largest brokers in southWales.
“We have created a number of initiatives that will have financial benefits for both Pontypridd RFC, but also the feeder clubs and community associations within the region. At a time when everyone is reeling from the economic downturn, we are confident that these opportunities will be well received.”
Antur Insurance offers a full range of commercial and private lines with offices in Swansea, Ammanford, Barry and Haverfordwest. Its claims department is based in Church Village.
Pontypridd RFC Finance Director, Peter Howells added, “When we met with Antur during our insurance re-negotiation period we felt that, as a leading broker, they offered significant financial and customer support benefits as well as a real understanding of the local rugby/sports club market. We feel that working with Antur will bring significant opportunities for both Pontrypridd RFC and our supporters and the local community as a whole.”
