Thunder and Superleague

UAP welcomed Manchester Thunder and England Roses’ netball player Eleanor Cardwell to its headquarters to mark UAP’s partnership with Manchester Thunder, as the new Superleague season gets underway.

UAP is a primary partner of the Vitality Netball Superleague franchise for Manchester and north west England under its corporate brand (UAP) and product brand (Fullex). It has been a key sponsor of the Thunder squad since 2016.

Greeted by CFO Bonnie Hodson, commercial director Tim Fairley, and commercial director Pat Rice, Eleanor explored the company’s product development and testing facility.

“UAP has a long history of supporting local sporting teams, community activities and charities,” Pat said. “It is with immense pleasure that we continue our support of Manchester Thunder as netball continues its worthy rise in both national participation and global recogition.”

Eleanor said: “Everyone is talking about netball at the moment. This year is going to be a great step forward in how the sport develops and how we can make the sport bigger and better.

“We can’t do that without the support of businesses like UAP who invest in our sport off court which allows us to be the best we can on court.”
