Mercedes sponsors Pirates coach


The Cornish Pirates have entered a business partnership with Mercedes-Benz dealership Mercedes of Truro.

The agreement sees the rugby club’s high performance manager, Chris Stirling, take delivery of a new C 180 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY Saloon.

He commented: “To have the use of such a fantastic car as a Mercedes-Benz is great news for me as I can drive a lot of miles in my role undertaking coaching, scouting, watching future opponents, and also community activities, so comfort, safety and reliability are all-important.

“We believe it is vital to the success of the club and our ambitions that we build links with local businesses like Mercedes-Benz of Truro, as vital support such as this enables us to keep alive the dream of bringing Premiership rugby to Cornwall.”
