Harlequins has confirmed an exciting group of pre-season fixtures as it prepares for the start of the 2013-14 season.
The 2011-2012 season should be very exciting following Harlequins' win in the Amlin Challenge Cup Final against Stade Francais at the end of last season which led to qualification to the Heineken Cup. Harlequins have also reported season ticket sales are well ahead of last year.
Blake Lapthorn's Managing Partner, Walter Cha, said: "We are delighted to continue our support for Harlequins RFC and wish the team the best of luck for the forthcoming season."
Blake Lapthorn is also pleased to announce that Harlequins will be supporting Team Ocho, a group of trainee solicitors from law firms across the Southern region including two from Blake Lapthorn who have come together under the Law South banner to take up The Prince's Trust Million Makers Corporate Challenge. The challenge involves a host of teams from companies and organisations from across the UK competing against each other to run the most profitable mini enterprise to raise funds for The Prince's Trust, which is Blake Lapthorn's chosen charity for 2011.
Team Ocho said: "We are extremely grateful to have the support of Harlequins RFC behind us. We hope that with its support we will be able to raise even more money for an inspirational cause."
Harlequins Interim CEO, David Morgan, said: "We are delighted that Blake Lapthorn has renewed their commitment as our Official Supplier of Legal Services. Blake Lapthorn are one of our long term supporters and we share their excitement about the forthcoming season with them as one of our key commercial partners".
