Following our successful
partnership during the Autumn internationals; we are proud to extend our
support to the Scottish Rugby Union (SRU); for the Guinness Six Nations as the
back-of-shirt sponsors of the Scotland national team.
back of shirt sponsors, we wanted to ensure we respected the team colours. The
purple on the Scotland team strip represents the thistle, which is the national
flower of Scotland. The thistle has been an important symbol of Scottish
heraldry for over 500 years. We’re proud to support Scotland’s heritage so for
the very first time in Purplebricks' history we have changed our brand colour
purple out of respect to the jersey.
Changing our brand’s colours is a
momentous occasion and reminiscent of the pioneering Coca Cola ‘Club Colours’
initiative, where they changed the colours of
the Coca-Cola logo for the first time in history, to those of the 72
Football League clubs.
Ed Hughes, CMO of Purplebricks, said:
“We’re proud to support Gregor
Townsend and the Scotland Rugby team and we look forward to working together in
this partnership for the Six Nations. We share common values and a shared
ambition to continually strive to improve in all areas; and challenge the
status quo to ensure a better outcome for our customers. Scotland have got off
to a sterling start to the tournament and we look forward to cheering them from
the stands over the coming weeks”
