Suretank is delighted to announce sponsorship of the Norwegian national rugby 7s team.   


Sponsorship commenced in style during the weekend of the 20th and 21st June at the men’s rugby 7s European Championship in Zagreb, with Norway winning the competition plate.

Philip Murphy, Director of Customer Care for Suretank, comments: “Being an Irish company, of course, rugby is in our blood and a hot topic of conversation within the office.  It made perfect sense to support the Norwegian team given our presence in the area and the close relationships with many of our customers who are also avid rugby fans.” 

Suretank supplies market leading offshore tanks and offshore containers for the oil and gas industry and has long had close ties with the sector in Norway and will be following Norway’s progress at further tournaments.  .

Per Thorkildsen, President of the Norway Rugby Federation (‘NRF’) said, “We are delighted to continue our partnership with such an innovative company that recognises the value of our sport. The Zagreb 7s was a milestone for NRF, as it was the first time that all 12 members of our squad were Norwegian passport holders. In 2014, Suretank sponsored the ladies’ 7s team and they had a very successful year.  I hope that the Suretank effect repeats itself this year with the men’s team!”

Philip Murphy continues: “ The Norwegian guys have not been playing rugby for as long as many of their competitors and still managed to pull off a brilliant performance.  Hopefully next time they get to play against Ireland”
