St. Helens R.F.C. are delighted to announce a new partnership with Liverpool John Lennon Airport!
Celebrating its 90th year, Merseyside’s airport is now an official club partner to the World Club Champion and Super League champions until the end of the 2023 season.
The partnership will see Liverpool John Lennon Airport as the proud sponsor of our new halftime Crossbar Challenge, which will see Saints Members given the chance to win return flights to wonderful locations. Furthermore, their branding is proudly placed pitch-side too on the edge of the North Stand next to the tunnel where the Saints runout for kick-off.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is one of the United Kingdom’s longest-established operational airports and has welcomed millions of passengers since officially opening on the 1st of July 1933 just seven miles South East of the City of Liverpool.
With more airlines increasing their routes and launching new ones through LJLA, even more people from our region and beyond will have the Faster, Easier, and Friendlier airport of choice.
Director of Aviation Development at Liverpool John Lennon Airport, Paul Winfield, said: “This is a great opportunity, not only to partner Merseyside’s airport with Merseyside’s rugby club but to do so in a year where both are marking milestone anniversaries – as we celebrate our 90th birthday and Saints toast 150 years.
“It also allows us to better connect and communicate with the people of St Helens, many of whom travel from Liverpool John Lennon Airport.”
Saints General Manager Dave Hutchinson spoke proudly about the Club’s new partnership with LJLA saying: “Everyone at Saints is delighted to welcome Liverpool John Lennon Airport to the Club as an official partner.
“Merseyside’s airport teaming up with the Rugby League team in our region, with both celebrating anniversary years, this is a perfect matchup and we look forward to growing our relationship with the airport in the coming months.”
