The Cornish Pirates have renewed their partnership with St Austell Brewery’s Tribute Pale Ale for a further three years.

Tribute remains the official beer of the Cornish Pirates and the team will continue to wear its ‘Tribute purple’ away kit, first introduced in 2018 to commemorate their long-standing partnership, with Tribute as a shirt sponsor. A case of St Austell Brewery’s flagship beer will also be awarded to the ‘Man of the Match’ at the end of each game.

Andrew Turner, MD of St Austell Brewery’s Beers & Brands, said: “We are proud to work with a club that serves as a major source of pride for Cornwall, representing the county in the second tier of the English rugby union pyramid. The upcoming season is set to be special as fans return to the Mennaye Field, after an extended period away from live sport. We look forward to raising a beer and cheering the team on from the stands.”

Pirates CEO, Rebecca Thomas, added: “We’re very proud of our long association with St Austell Brewery, and greatly value relationship that we’ve built together over the past 13 years.

“Their ongoing sponsorship is vital to the Cornish Pirates and goes a long way in supporting our players and events throughout the season.”
