We're celebrating Ten Years on the Touchline with Glasgow Warriors
10 years on the Touchline with Glasgow Warriors
To mark the ten-year anniversary of our partnership with Glasgow Warriors, a series of events will be hosted throughout the season, with Warriors past and present joining seasoned observers of Glasgow Warriors to discuss the past decade on and off the pitch.
Glasgow Warriors supporters will be given the chance to vote for their Warriors Team of the Decade throughout the 2017/18 campaign, thanks to McCrea Financial Services, who have signed a new two-year deal with the club.
The first of these videos will be available to watch live at 12 noon today as Douglas McCrea, British and Irish Lion Stuart Hogg and journalist Hugh MacDonald join former Warriors captain Al Kellock to trade anecdotes and look back on a decade’s worth of association with the club.
Throughout the season, supporters will be given the opportunity to give their thoughts on the past ten years, a period which has seen the Warriors grow into one of Europe’s top clubs, by voting for who they think should make the Glasgow Warriors Team of the Decade on social media.
Supporters who interact most frequently on the official Warriors and McCreas channels will also be invited to the official unveiling of the Team of the Decade later in the season, with further details to be confirmed in due course.
Glasgow Warriors Managing Director, Nathan Bombrys, said: “McCrea Financial Services are long standing sponsors of the club and their support has helped the club grow over the last 10 years.
“It’s great that they have chosen to continue their association with the club for the next two years and it’ll be fascinating to see who our supporters vote into our Team of the Decade.”
McCrea Financial Services, Managing Director, Douglas McCrea added: “Our first home game as sponsors was against Connacht at Firhill, which was a 16-15 win in front of 1,226 supporters. Now Glasgow Warriors are getting over 7,000 supporters to every home game.
“To think after 10 years we have now won the league as well as winning in every away ground in the PRO12, with a few brilliant wins in France against Montpellier, Toulouse and Racing 92, how times have changed.
“It’s great to have been part of the journey and we’re looking forward to another two years as one of the club’s official sponsors.”
