Big Name Clubs and Sponsors in the UK

The 2020 season has shown some brilliant games so far and there is no shortage of competitors for the top spot in the UK Rugby Premiership. All of the team’s sponsors are waiting eagerly to see how the next rounds will eventuate and the current status of the league looks like a battle between the last year’s premiers Exeter and rivals waiting to take them out.

Exeter Chiefs

So far the big contenders of the Premiership are the Exeter Chiefs sponsored by swcomm ( a large internet, data and voice company). The teams almost took out the premiership last season and look very strong in the early rounds leading only by one point currently.

Northampton Saints

Second-placed Northampton Saints are sponsored by Travis Perkins which is a leading company in the building and home improvement markets. The Saints are looking to regain form from their 2013-14 premiership win. So far their rivals, the Leicester Tigers are floundering at the bottom of the table and the Saints have pulled off strong wins against third-placed Gloucester. However, they are yet to meet the top placed Exeter Chiefs which will be a true test of their ability to knock down a giant.


Gloucester is currently sitting third place on the table. Louis Rees-Zammit holds the key for Gloucester having scored five tries and is the second-highest scorer of the season. The team is looking strong but have not won against Northampton and they must still take on Exeter. They have had a win against their rivals Bath making them still strong contenders. Their Sponsor is Mitsubishi Motors (UK) and no doubt the company is looking closely at the contenders for the Premiership.

The early rounds of the UK Rugby Premiership have shown some strong contenders ready to take on Exeter. However, they will need to give as much as they possibly can to take up the fight against them.
