Eteach, the UK's number one online education recruitment service, has increased its involvement with Harlequins for the 2007/08 season. The new deal sees Eteach become one of four Official Sponsors and reaffirms their strong association with Quins.
As an Official Sponsor, Eteach receives branding on the back of the famous quartered shirts as well as the naming rights to the Quins Academy that will now be known as the 'Harlequins England Rugby Academy sponsored by Eteach'. As part of this development, they will continue to forge links with the education sector by sponsoring the school visits undertaken by Academy players as part of their player development programmes.
Eteach is an education jobsite for permanent, temporary and supply teaching and support staff, and provides the most cost effective way for schools to find new staff. Through their excellent service, Eteach have gained the support of key unions such as NUT, ATL, ASCL, NAHT, CES and PAT.
Laura Oakes, Sponsorship Manager of Harlequins, commented: "We are delighted that Eteach has strengthened its relationship with Harlequins. Eteach have sponsored Quins since 2001 and during that time have shown commitment and loyalty to the Club, particularly during our season in National Division One. We are very pleased that Eteach has decided to increase their involvement with the Club as we head into the 2007/08 season. We have a committed group of sponsors backing the Club and we're very happy that Eteach's association with Quins is continuing."
Gareth Morgan, National Sales Manager and former RFU Panel referee, said: "Eteach is delighted to strengthen our partnership with Harlequins. As the leader in our field, we look forward to a great season both on and off the pitch - and to the Club establishing itself at the top of British rugby."
During week commencing 22nd April Harlequins will launch an innovative, new Membership Scheme which will replace the existing Season Ticket Holder Programme. Further details of the scheme will be announced in due course.
