Team Army are delighted to announce a new partnership with Vodafone, who have agreed to be our newest Gold Sponsor, in a deal which includes featuring their logo on the much coveted Army Rugby Shirt, from next season.

As part of their agreement, Vodafone Defence, who have worked with the Ministry of Defence and the Armed Forces for over 15 years, sponsored an Army Sports reception in the Palace of Westminster on Thurs 7 Aug, hosted by the Chief of the General Staff and new Team Army patron, Gen Sir Peter Wall.

Over 180 key sportsmen and women, officials and many distinguished guests attended to celebrate the sporting achievements of our many elite athletes in this, a Paralympic and Commonwealth Games year.

This special event also marked the beginning of an exciting, new relationship between Team Army and Vodafone as they enter the scheme as a Gold Sponsor.

Major General Lamont Kirkland CBE, CEO Team Army, said:

“I am delighted to welcome Vodafone as a new Gold sponsor of Team Army. Their support in facilitating sport will make a tangible difference to many ordinary serving men & women.
