Jewellery brand to work with Welsh team on new jewellery collection.
Clogau Gold has announced a three-year headline sponsorship package with the Wales Polo Team and its associations, through which it will sponsor events and create a special polo-themed jewellery collection.
Ben Roberts, managing director of Clogau Gold said of the news: “We’re delighted to support Welsh Polo, strengthening our ties to our Welsh heritage and endorsing a team that embodies our brand values”.
The UK governing body of polo, the Hurlingham Polo Association, recently agreed to officially recognise the Welsh polo team and the Welsh Polo Association.
The endorsement has also lead to the Prince of Wales agreeing to be patron of the Wales Polo Association for the initial three years.
The new Chairman of the Wales Polo Team and Association, Harry Legge-Bourke, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Clogau have agreed to sponsor the team for three years and look forward to working with them and our other sponsors in promoting Wales and all that is best of our sporting culture.
“I know that the team and committee will be great ambassadors for our country.”
Clogau’s brand manager Sonia Menezes said the brand will now sponsor the 2012 polo season, with events such as the British Beach Polo at Sandbanks in Dorset, as well as launching a jewellery collection designed in association with the Wales Polo Team.
