Selco Builders Warehouse has demonstrated its commitment to rugby league in Manchester by sponsoring Salford Red Devils Women for the 2023 campaign.
The leading builders merchant began a three-year-deal as the front of shirt sponsor with Salford’s men team last season in which they embarked on a memorable run to reach the Super League play-off semi-finals.
Now Selco, which has a branch on Regent Street, will provide the same sponsorship for the female team ahead of their first season in Super League 2.
Salford Red Devils Women were formed at the start of last season and finished top of the Championship League, as well as winning the League Cup.
Carine Jessamine, marketing director of Selco, said: “We are delighted to extend our involvement with Salford Red Devils to also support the women’s team ahead of a huge season.
“We are long-term backers of rugby league and in supporting the World Cup last year, we demonstrated out commitment to helping the sport grow.
“Salford’s women’s team had a fantastic first season in 2022 and it was a natural fit to provide our backing as they move into the second tier of women’s rugby league.
“We wish them, and the men’s team, every success for the forthcoming season.”
There are plans for a number of Salford Red Devils Women’s matches to be played as part of double-headers with the men’s team at the Salford Stadium this season, and the team will also feature in the Women’s Challenge Cup for the first time.
Marcelle Lock, manager of Salford Red Devils Women, said: “It’s been an incredible 12 months since the team was formed and we have come a long way in a very short period of time.
“To have Selco on board as our main sponsors and matching the men’s team on that front is a fantastic boost for us all.
“Next season will be a fantastic experience for the whole team and we are looking forward to the challenge.”
