RPC partners with Sport Industry Group
International law firm RPC has partnered with Sport Industry Group in an exciting move which will see collaboration across the Sport Industry NextGen programme and the Sport Industry Awards.
RPC will support Sport Industry Group, the leading business network across the sports sector, which brings together the key influential figures from the British and international sporting landscape for world-class events. Sport Industry Group's news website provides up to date news and content for sports professionals and the wider industry from around the sector, and the organisation also runs the illustrious Sport Industry NextGen programme for future leaders.
Dylan Pugh, Managing Director of Sport Industry Group, said, “I’m delighted to welcome RPC as an Official Sponsor of Sport Industry Group at a company level.
"We look forward to welcoming RPC’s extensive expertise in providing commercial legal advice to the business of sport as an additional benefit to the 30 Leaders selected in this year’s Sport Industry NextGen programme. RPC will also be a part of our portfolio of events - including the Sport Industry Awards, Sport Industry Dining and Sport Industry Socials.”
As part of the partnership, RPC will become an Official Partner of both the Sport Industry Awards, which this year will take place at Evolution London on 12th May, and Sport Industry NextGen, a prestigious professional development programme providing the best emerging talent from within the sport industry with a tailored year-long leadership package.
The firm's leading Sports and Commercial groups will also offer a clinic for the Sport Industry NextGen leaders to help support the industry’s future leaders with specialist commercially focused legal advice.
Jeremy Drew added, "We are really excited to be collaborating with the team at Sport Industry Group. The partnership signals the firm's commitment to supporting the country's sports sector.”
"As well as supporting the Brand of the Year category at the Sport Industry Awards over the next few years, we are very excited to support the NextGen leaders by providing them with bespoke events and to offer them access to RPC’s full-service support as an extra benefit to them in participating on the programme – especially as it aligns with one of our core priorities to support and facilitate future progression.
"RPC's Sports Group has built its reputation for providing a consistent, collaborative and commercial service to our clients. Sports is a core area for us at RPC, and we are looking forward to bringing our experience to bear with one of the leading sports business networks across the country."
