Global brand Jacuzzi® have enhanced their growing partnership with Hull FC having been confirmed as the club’s Elite Training Partner!
One of the club’s most high-profile partners, alongside main club sponsor Atropa Pharmacy, Jacuzzi® have further strengthened their links with the Black & Whites as their names will proudly sit on the Elite Performance Training ranges, which will be launched later this week.
It is the obvious progression for the club’s Elite Performance Partner, who already support the first-team training facility, as well as promoting the club’s best weekly performances with the Jacuzzi® Man of the Match award.
They also recently featured on the front of the club’s playing shirts for the first time as part of a limited-edition shirt celebrating the 15th anniversary of Hull’s famous Challenge Cup win in Cardiff, as well as helping raise awareness for Rob Burrow’s brave fight against MND.
In an exciting new initiative, alongside local showroom Outdoor Living – the largest hot-tub distributor in the world, Jacuzzi® will feature on all of the Hull’s elite training wear for the club’s full network of representative teams, including men, women, academy and Centre of Excellence.
They will also feature on a newly expanded match day warm-up range, which will be launched in the new year.
Andy Bewicke, Business Development Director for Jacuzzi® in the UK said:
“We are immensely proud to be part of the Hull FC family and this latest extension to our partnership moves us further forward with our strategy to be a key driver for performance and wellness, on and off the field.
“Our teams at Jacuzzi® have always worked extremely hard to promote the need for people to invest in their health and wellness, having been responsible for the invention of the Hydromassage pump back in 1946 to help improve quality of life.
“That message has never been more important given the challenges we are facing with Coronavirus and our partnership with Hull FC continues to showcase and raise awareness of that narrative, our products and our services.“
He added, “The relationship is complimented very well locally through the ongoing support of Paul Margerison and the team at Outdoor Living, which has been critical to making this partnership a success.
“As a lifelong fan, Paul’s passion for the club is inspiring and drives us all on to challenging what is possible.”
One of the club’s most significant partners in their 155-year history, the global manufacturer and distributor of whirlpool baths, hot tubs, swim spas and saunas have become integral club partners since 2018, alongside local showroom distributor Outdoor Living.
Unlike many normal sponsorships, Jacuzzi® are embracing their health and wellness mantra by playing a hands-on role in the preparation and recovery of the Hull’s first-team players, including the installation of a state-of-the-art hydrotherapy spa at the first-team training ground which provides proven benefits of pain reduction and flexibility.
Hull FC are not the only key sports partner of the Jacuzzi® brand either, sitting alongside the likes of GB Triathlete Kimberley Morrison, Olympic gold medallist Sally Gunnell OBE and several members of the GB Olympic Swimming team, amongst many others.
With a strong focus on wellness, both physically and mentally, Jacuzzi® are committed to playing a key role in the performance of the Hull FC team, as well as supporting the club through a commercially critical period due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Hull FC Chief Executive, James Clark, also added:
“Once again this is a proud moment for the club to be able to promote and work with such a high-profile and forward-thinking global brand.
“To bring together Jacuzzi® and hummel® in this way is exciting for the club and demonstrates our growing reputation in attracting and maintaining partners of the highest calibre.
“The team at Jacuzzi® and locally at Outdoor Living have been fantastic and share a genuine affinity and values between two established, heritage brands.
“This is the perfect extension to the partnership to continue the ever-increasing elite performance narrative, meaning Jacuzzi® will be with us every step of the way on and off the field in 2021.”
The new-look Jacuzzi® elite performance training collection will be launched later this week, with further ranges to be unveiled throughout winter.
These items will be available from the club’s online retail store at hullfcshop.com.
The club also hope to re-open their club shops as soon as government guidelines permit.
