Toronto Wolfpack are delighted to announce a formal partnership with the UK Government’s Department for International Trade. The partnership also involves Betfred Super League and will underpin the Wolfpack’s commitment to fostering transatlantic trade between Canada and the UK.
“Sport can be an important bridge for sound, effective business between the two countries and supporting this has always been an integral objective for the Club since it’s formation. This agreement will see the Wolfpack co-hosting trade events with the Department for International Trade, and will undoubtedly help our partners access new opportunities both in the UK & Canada” commented Martin Vickers, UK General Manager, Toronto Wolfpack.
“We’re excited to be launching this partnership, and to be working alongside Toronto Wolfpack and Super League. This is an important time in which to support exporters in accessing opportunities overseas, and to promote trade with Canada. Our aim is that this partnership will provide businesses with high quality market insights, and enable them to gain market traction through Rugby League’s growing transatlantic presence” added Mark Robson, Head of UK Regions- Yorkshire & Humber, Department for International Trade.
A launch event for the partnership was hosted by the incoming British Consul General to Toronto and Deputy Trade Commissioner to North America, Jennifer Young. The event, timed to coincide with the week’s Canada Day celebrations, was an opportunity for the partners to outline their thoughts and ambitions for the partnership and how they intend to work with businesses both in the UK and Canada.
