Leisure Resorts confirmed as 2024 Kit Sponsors

Leigh Leopards are delighted to announce that Leisure Resorts will continue their long-standing partnership with the club by sponsoring the home and away kit for the 2024 season.

Leisure Resorts have successfully created some of the most renowned holiday home and lodge parks across the UK. Their portfolio includes three award-winning parks set amongst areas of outstanding natural beauty.

  • Aysgarth Lodges is nestled in the picturesque Yorkshire Dales, and offers a peaceful retreat surrounded by stunning natural beauty.
  • Ullswater Heights, North Lakes is in the heart of The Lake District and provides a serene escape with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and lakes.
  • Angrove Country Park, North York Moors, is situated in a tranquil countryside setting, offering a perfect blend of relaxation and outdoor adventure.

Leisure Resorts CEO Gary Molloy said: “It gives me great pleasure to be able to continue our involvement, not only with Leigh Leopards but within the fantastic sport that is Rugby League.

“It’s been great to see the realisation of success and hard work this season with finally cementing a place in Super League and making the playoffs but to witness the lifting of the Challenge Cup was remarkable. It gave us great pride to be a part of such an historic occasion.

“We have had a presence on the shirt now for many years and during that time we have seen the growth of business from Rugby League fans, which is often evident by the different replica shirts I see on park. I love how inclusive the sport is, and how it can have such fierce rivalry on the field, yet the fans can share friendly banter and come together to support each other in tough times. No other sport is like it that I have seen.

“It’s also been a privilege to be involved in the women’s game and to see that grow and I love it when the LDRL team take to the field. I am also looking forward to seeing the development of the wheelchair team at the club, especially having seen some of the games in the World Cup which were outstanding.

“We want to reward fans for their loyalty to sponsors of the game and will be running specific offers throughout the year to achieve that. We wish everyone at the Leopards and all the competing teams a successful and healthy 2024 season.”

Leigh Leopards owner Derek Beaumont said: “It’s great to see such a quality company that shares our values as a club and a sport continue their relationship. Especially as that it’s based on good commercial benefit and not purely in support, which is testament to the loyalty of our fans and the wider rugby community. This is a great advert for other businesses looking to grow their customer base in a cost-effective manner.

“What’s great about the relationship is what it delivers beyond the shirt sponsorship in areas that don’t get talked about as a little like me, Gary keeps them quiet. He does it for what it delivers, not for a return, but Leisure Resorts have created some special memories for some very special people through their good-natured hospitality and these moments will never be forgotten.

“They have also provided some good recovery for players at appropriate times in the season in their spa lodges at Ullswater Heights which has been beneficial to the team. I am looking forward to again working with Gary and his Leisure Resorts team to continue benefiting others and creating memories that otherwise wouldn’t exist.”
