15.08.19 - Dragons - Compeed

Dragons have announced a major new long-term sponsorship agreement with blister plaster experts, Compeed.

Compeed has today been unveiled as the new Official First Aid Partner of the Dragons and will take pride of place on all first team jerseys and shorts.

As part of the exciting new partnership, our iconic Rodney Parade home is also set to be transformed.

The Rodney Road Stand and Terrace will now be known as the Compeed Stand and Compeed Terrace, with branding installed alongside modern new dugouts before the start of the new season.

Compeed is the ultimate blister plaster essential that helps the nation to get quickly back on its feet, without letting an irritating blister get in the way.

The partnership with Compeed will provide support to the region’s medical department and sponsor star senior duo Sam Davies and Ollie Griffiths.

Compeed will also be investing in our community work with support for the Dragons’ Walking Rugby team, based at Cwmbran Stadium in partnership with Torfaen Leisure Trust by providing essential kit.

Jonathan Westwood, Head of Commercial at Dragons, said: “We are delighted to welcome such a well renowned and international brand as Compeed into our growing stable of partners here at Dragons.

“Compeed blister plasters are a kit-bag essential so it is exciting for all of us at Dragons to be able to work alongside such an ambitious and globally connected business.

“For an organisation of such repute to acknowledge the vision and ambition of the Dragons is testament to the values, strategy and growth opportunities that are being developed within the region, and the hard work going on behind the scenes to give the Dragons’ supporters and Welsh rugby the successful, sustainable and ambitious team they deserve.

“Working closely in partnership with the team at Compeed, alongside other primary partners such as Monmouthshire Building Society, Molston Coors, Lovell Rugby and BT, we believe these goals are not only achievable, but we can continuously develop how we operate as a business.

“We would like to thank Compeed, CEO David Wright and his team for the confidence and support already demonstrated, and the opportunity to work together on what we are confident will be a rewarding, long-term and mutually beneficial partnership.”

Clare Newins of Compeed added: “Blisters strike at any time and can be debilitating, stopping you performing at your personal best. We’ve worked with a number of athletes across a variety of sports, including grass-roots rugby teams, and we know that Compeed blister plasters are increasingly considered as highly suited to sporting situations. No-one needs a blister to get in the way of their performance. This partnership with Dragons, a high-performing rugby team, is a great fit for us and we look forward to working closely together throughout this season and beyond.”
