For a change, I thought I’d share a profile of one of the sponsors that has supported a sporting organisation, which ACROBAT FCSM represents.  Riqueza has been this Season’s main shirt sponsor at Manchester Rugby Club.

“Riqueza Group believes in building lifelong relationships for wealth, health and happiness. So what does that mean? Let’s use Sport as a Sector for an example as to how Riqueza do their business!

As a member of The London Sporting Club in Mayfair, Riqueza has built a number of relationships with sports personalities past, present and future. Pictured are partners of Riqueza Neil Rustage and Carl Oates with their land, property client, Sam Allardyce. Sam has land and property in Moraira, Spain where Riqueza has an Office. The guys from Riqueza also have pride in their Brand Ambassador, Roy Evans (ex-Liverpool).

Riqueza sponsors and supports a number of non league sporting entities across the UK including Manchester Rugby Club and AFC Fylde of the Vanarama National League. One of the services it offers is to facilitate personal and professional insurances for the clubs across players, directors and supporters.

Riqueza enjoys some great relationships on a personal level across sport encompassing the media, the athletes themselves, agents and organisations. Riqueza’s partner Carl Oates was recently in a prominent photograph with Sky Sports News Presenter, Hayley McQueen, at The League Managers Awards dinner, one of footballs’ most prestigious annual events. Riqueza works closely with Van Rooyen in Warrington, Cheshire to provide high net worth sporting clients with luxury, prestige and elite cars from across the World on a leased and purchased basis.

So just a few anecdotes on what wealth, health and happiness means in collaboration.  In summary, if you’re in the market for luxury property, luxury cars or all encompassing personal and professional insurances to protect yourself, Riqueza would love to help.

Get Your Kit On

Even choosing a kit shouldn’t be left to a whim.  It is another commercial discipline in running a sports enterprise, where ‘beauty parades’ and bench-marking are prudent.

We have been involved in several competitive tenders for kit suppliers, with that of Manchester Rugby Club the latest.

Following last season’s promotion, this Club is honoured to have been named recently Rugby World Club of the Year. It is the second oldest rugby union club in the World. A 24-acre site with a mix of sporting and social facilities. The Club has some amazing memorabilia that would be prime in any rugby exhibition. Why not see for yourself by visiting?

It thrives on its strong community commitment with teams from Under 7s to Senior Rugby, for men, women, girls and boys. The Club has the whole range of teams that not many clubs can boast.  The Mini and Junior (M&J) section has recently produced some amazing talent with 4 Premiership rugby players (more than any other club in England) and 6 England players in the last 5 years.

ACROBAT | FCSM approached ten suppliers and received ten tenders.  The quality was high and infact all were credible brands in the marketplace, though some more established in Northern Hemisphere than others, but all were suited.

The shortlisting was conducted in accordance with the Club and although two suppliers were favoured in terms of benefit-in-kind, quality, reliability and pricing – only one made the final cut and O’Neills were awarded a 3 year deal taking us to the end of the 2019/20 season.

O’Neills, combined leading edge sportswear design with competitive delivery times. It is Ireland’s leading sportswear manufacturer. A Company steeped in heritage like Manchester Rugby, it was founded in 1918, now trading as O’Neills International Sports Company Ltd and employing over 600 people.

Manchester Rugby Club is currently actively looking for sponsors and can offer both positions on shirts and partnership opportunities that can deliver tangible returns-on-investment.  Please contact Adrian Stores at for informal, no obligation communication on how working together can help a company or brand.
