With an office also based in Leeds, Whisky Investment Partners is proud to be sponsoring the world’s oldest and most prestigious Rugby League competition. Being the only tournament of its kind, allowing teams from all levels of the sport to compete, the challenge cup is a staple event in the sporting calendar.
“When the opportunity arose to sponsor the challenge cup semi-final here in Leeds, we couldn’t possibly turn it down…” said Whisky Investment Partners’ Karan Bhullar. “Just like Scotch Whisky, the challenge cup is steeped in tradition and history. It’s the perfect pairing.”
Following the Farmfoods European Senior Masters Golf Tournament last year, the Challenge Cup is yet another prestigious sporting event sponsored by Whisky Investment Partners.
Looking for the perfect drop to compliment the weekends sport? Highland distillery, Loch Lomond currently sponsors the Rugby League Super League and even produces a limited edition bottling for both Challenge Cup semi-finalists, Hull KR and Huddersfield Giants!
You can watch along and raise a dram to the competing teams with all the action broadcast live on BBC. If you’d prefer to see the action live, limited tickets remain available and can be purchased here.
