Harrogate Water has announced a five-year partnership with Ascot as Official Water Supplier to run from 2018 to 2022.

The announcement, in the run up to Royal Ascot, Britain’s most valuable race meeting, extends the successful three-year sponsorship deal signed in 2015.

Harrogate Water brand manager Nicky Cain said: “The five-year extension speaks volumes about the success of the partnership and the benefits of being associated with one of the world’s finest and most famous social and sporting venues.

“Ascot race days are internationally celebrated events, quintessentially British and the sponsorship is a perfect fit for both brands. It reinforces our position as the UK’s number one premium bottled water brand.

“In three years, Harrogate Water has doubled in size and we have seen a phenomenal growth in both home and export markets.”

The sponsorship arrangement will include a Harrogate Water sponsored race.
