UK Ultimate thanks Hyperion, GB Sponsors

UK Ultimate thanks Hyperion Insurance Group as team sponsor of the GB Men at the World Ultimate and Guts Championships in London. The partnership brought much-needed financial support to the team ahead of the largest WUGC to date.

The sponsorship enabled the GB Men’s squad to make use of first-class pitches for training, a squad physio for all tournaments and training, strength and conditioning coaching and nutritional supplements, as well as subsidising a number of player’s travel requirements. The sponsorship also supported the provision of branded kit and training gear, which the players were wearing throughout the tournament.
