Planet Sport Unveiled As Lead Sponsor Of Huddersfield Giants Women

Planet Sport has been officially launched as the main sponsor of Women’s Rugby Super League team Huddersfield Giants for the 2024 season.

As The Giants women enter their fifth year as a team, Planet Sport are proudly partnering with the Women’s Super League team as primary shirt and training kit sponsors. The partnership will support Huddersfield Giants’ already outstanding dedication to raising the profile of women’s rugby league and comes as part of a package of branding and hospitality for both the men’s and women’s fixtures in 2024.

Planet Sport has a rich history of supporting rugby league. The sport media network’s titles Love Rugby League and are longstanding and well-respected outlets that cover the sport’s latest news, live scores and betting tips for the sport. The partnership is set to engage their audiences with exclusive content promoting Huddersfield Giants women’s endeavours in the women’s Super League.

Commenting on the new partnership, Planet Sport CEO, Barrie Jarrett, said: “As existing sponsors of women’s rugby league, myself and the team at Planet Sport are incredibly excited about being lead sponsor of Huddersfield Giants Women.

“We’ve been following the impressive strides Giants Women have been making since their inception just five years ago. The club are clearly seeking to be at the forefront of women’s rugby league and have strong ambitions to be competing with the best in the league this season. We’re delighted to be playing a part in their journey.”

In the run-up to the start of the season, the club has been busy developing their squad and focused on signing a raft of talented players such as Halfback Sam Hulme and Second-Rower Kacy Haley.

Brian Blacker, Commercial Manager at Huddersfield Giants, said:
“It is a pleasure to welcome such a sport focused business as Planet Sport as our main partner for the Huddersfield Giants Women's team for the 2024 WSL season.

“From the first few words I had with Barrie Jarrett I got the feeling that this wasn't just a run of the mill discussion. He showed genuine interest in the women's game and had a drive that made me excited to be working with this business.

“Bringing the women's team within the structure of the Parent Club is a big statement & we fully intend to work hard to bring success to them, & this Partnership is just the start. It is also one that we hope will flourish further in the future, as we progress.”
