Fujitsu sponsors of the Commons & Lords rugby team

Fujitsu, the public sector IT systems, services and product supplier, has signed a sponsorship deal with the Commons & Lords Rugby Union Football Club (RUFC) for the 2009/10 season.

The Commons and Lords RUFC exists “to foster international relations, development and friendship through parliamentary rugby”.

Internationally, it is one of 10 national teams playing parliamentary rugby under the control of the Council for Inter Parliamentary Rugby.

The Club was formed in 1983 and has played against all of the major rugby playing nations in the world.

It is a charity fundraiser and during the last 10 years the club has contributed sums to a number of charitable causes such as, the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, Wooden Spoon, Dyslexia Association and Child Victims of Crime.

Lord Addington is Club Captain & Hon Secretary, Andy Reed MP is Club Treasurer and one of the regular players is the new Minister at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office Chris Bryant MP.

Simon Carter, marketing director, UK Government says “The sponsorship of the House of Commons & Lords team helps Fujitsu strengthen its 40 year relationship working with Government. We see it as an important opportunity to increase the visibility of the Fujitsu brand with members of both Houses.”

Fujitsu’s branding will include the company logo on team shirts, advertising at games and the presentation of the Fujitsu Trophy for home matches.

Fujitsu is a supplier to HM Revenue and Customs, DVLA, Department of Work and Pensions, the Home Office and the Ministry of Defence. In the private sector it also supports customers as broad as the Post Office, Vodafone, Centrica and Lloyds Banking Group.
