Mentos has been unveiled as an Official Sponsor of BT SPORT RUGBY AID 2015 In Association with The Sun.
Mentos, the UK’s fastest growing Mint brand, joins BT Sport, The Sun, Harlequins RFC and Canterbury as an Official Sponsor for Rugby Aid 2015, an inaugural event that follows the same format as the hugely successful football equivalent, Soccer Aid.
The event in aid of charity Rugby For Heroes of which Mike Tindall MBE is Patron, sees celebrities and some of the greatest former professional rugby players battle it out in an England v Rest of the World fixture at Twickenham Stoop, home of Harlequins RFC, on Friday 4 September. Rugby For Heroes raises funds and awareness through the sport of rugby, the fan community and the wider professional player network, to support military personnel who are making the transition back from military service to civilian life.
In what is believed to be a UK first, the Twickenham Stoop posts and cross-bar will feature the Mentos logo, delivering a prominent presence when a penalty or conversion is scored during the event which will be televised live on BT Sport.
Rugby World Cup winner Mike Tindall MBE will lead the England team with Shane Williams MBE captaining the Rest of the World squad which includes rugby legends such as Ugo Monye, Jason Leonard MBE, Neil Back MBE, Josh Lewsey MBE, Ian Balshaw Brad Thorne and Shane Byrne to mention just a few.
Other sporting stars and celebs pulling on their boots include McBusted’s Harry Judd, Made in Chelsea’s Jamie Laing, TV presenters Gethin Jones, Matt Johnson, Rav Wilding, actor Julian Lewis Jones, England’s Strongest Man Terry Hollands and JLS’ JB Gill.
