Geospatial Intelligence experts Envitia are proud to confirm our third year of sponsorship of the RAF Waddington Hornets rugby team, extending a partnership that first began in 2013.
The Lincolnshire-based team is once again contesting the hotly-fought Station League and Cup, hoping to improve on their achievements of the last season, where they reached the RAF Inter Station Cup semi-finals. The RAF Waddington Hornets are currently lying second in Group A in the cup qualification table, and are hoping to go at least one step better this year by reaching, and then winning, the final. We’ll provide regular updates on the progress of the Hornets here on our blog.
A new feature for this year’s sponsorship arrangement is a brand new black and yellow team kit, designed to more closely reflect the team’s ‘hornets’ name. It features the Envitia logo, which is also displayed on the team’s clubhouse. Envitia will also be providing a prize and award for the Envitia Player of the Year at the end of the season.
Envitia is a major supplier of the geospatial technology which enables shared situational awareness for on-board ISTAR platforms, making the link-up between Envitia and the RAF Waddington Hornets a natural choice for a continuing successful partnership. RAF Waddington is a state-of-the-art military unit, recognised as the air force’s main hub for the latest in ISTAR technology.
Envitia Business Development Manager Mark Richardson said the continuing partnership was of huge value to both club and company: “We are extremely proud to contribute to the Hornets’ success. Envitia technology is used extensively in ISTAR platforms making Waddington a natural partner. The team is on great form this year and I am really excited about the season ahead.”
