Long standing partners of Pontypridd RFC – “The World of Groggs” – have this season taken over a new role as club website sponsors.
The strong links between the World of Groggs and the club go back a long, long way, not least as the Hughes family who own and run the shop are quite simply Ponty fanatics! As well as being Club sponsors and benefactors in various ways, the World of Groggs also supply the “Golden Bob” man of the match award for every Ponty home game.
Pontypridd RFC are delighted that the World of Groggs are now extending their partnership into the exciting new domain of website sponsorship. The club site www.ponty.net is hugely popular, receiving thousands of hits each month. As well as being the main vehicle of communicating with supporters worldwide, the club is aware of the huge marketing potential of such a well visited site.
Commenting on the new Sponsorship link, Owen Williams, Ponty.net Website Manager stated:
"While the possibility of Website Sponsorship had been mooted for some time, finding the right partner with the right "fit" was imperative. Carly Hughes' enthusiasm for the tie-up between Club and the World of Groggs made the decision simple, and we've gone from tentative discussions to outline sketches to a live branded site in a matter of days.
Our Digital Media Partners, Infonia Webdesign, were instrumental in delivering this new Sponsorship capability, and I'd like to extend my sincere thanks to their exceptional team.
I anticipate that the World of Groggs will see a marked upturn in visitor numbers from our platform to theirs over the coming season - especially in light of the British & Irish Cup competition this coming November.
These are exciting times for all at Pontypridd RFC, and it's fantastic to have the World of Groggs on-board and online! I hope they enjoy the ride!"
Carly Hughes, on behalf of the World of Groggs commented:
“We are delighted to be sponsoring the Ponty website, especially now that the club's profile will be enhanced by its participation in the British & Irish Cup. We are continually proud to support Pontypridd RFC.”
In a continued drive to improve sponsorship and to extend its partnerships with local and national businesses, Ponty Rugby Ltd view its website as a crucial link in its marketing strategy.
With the World of Groggs coming on board as website sponsors, the huge potential of internet advertising and sponsorship with Pontypridd RFC can begin to be realised.
