Trump Turnberry will sponsor Ayr Rugby for the 2019/2020 season.

The partnership will allow Turnberry to work alongside the Ayrshire club in their quest to position the game of rugby for all.

The hotel and resort has focussed its sponsorship on the Ayr Ladies and Junior teams.

The ladies side, which was formed in 2012 have risen quickly to compete at the top of Scottish women’s rugby and until the end of the season will wear the Turnberry logo on the kits as part of the partnership.

The partnership also looks to continue to contribute towards education, wellbeing, employment and inclusiveness across the Ayrshire community.

Which is why another keystone of the sponsorship will include getting youngsters into sport and developing their skills and therefore see Turnberry named as the sponsor for the Ayr Rugby Mini Tournament.

Ralph Porciani, General Manager at Trump Turnberry, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Ayr Rugby this season.

“This felt like a natural partnership as both the rugby club and the resort have a long history in Scottish sport. We recognise that sport should be for everyone, which is why we are focusing our sponsorship on the junior and ladies’ teams.

Ayr Rugby club are members of the new Scottish Rugby semi-professional league, the Super6 with Ayrshire Bulls representing the west of Scotland in the league.

This positive development in the club has lead to the signing of Scotland internationalist, Gordon Reid to the Ayrshire Bulls.

Hailing from Ayrshire, Reid re-joined Ayr Rugby; playing for the new Super6 team after nine years of playing for Glasgow Warriors and London Irish and representing Scotland at this years Rugby World Cup in Japan.

He said: “It is great to have Turnberry on board as a prestigious, internationally renowned brand and an Ayrshire hotel with close ties to the community.

“As a club, we have grown our ladies and junior sides and recently launched the Ayrshire Bulls. The partnership with Turnberry will further enhance the clubs position in the heart and centre of the community.”
