Property services firm, CVS, has been named as the official main sponsor of rugby union side, London Wasps.

The “significant” sponsorship deal will see the Manchester-headquartered firm’s branding appear on players’ shirts and back of their shorts as well as training kits.

“Sponsoring Wasps is a watershed moment for CVS. Wasps’ competitiveness and desire to win is a perfect reflection of our own brand values. I am genuinely excited about the future of London Wasps with new owner Derek Richardson and a talented team of players under the guidance of Dai Young. We are proud at CVS to be there at the start of this new era and are looking forward to a great season,” said chief executive, Mark Rigby – who also happens to be a former Wasps Captain and current Chairman of the Club.

CVS employs more than 275 staff across its Manchester, Bristol and London offices.
