The Bendac Group are delighted to announce our new partnership with Bath Rugby for the 2021/22 season and beyond.
Bath Rugby is a professional rugby club in Bath, Somerset. They play in Premiership Rugby, England’s top division of rugby.
A prominent premiership team both in and out of the city, Bath Rugby boasts a long list of achievements as well as a huge fan base. Having evolved with social and technological progress over the years, the squad have adapted and developed training methods in order to enhance their performance both on and off the pitch.
Following the successful installation of a pitchside outdoor LED screen at Farleigh House last season, Bendac have now become the club’s Official Technical AV & Digital Display Partner and their brand logo will feature on the matchday shorts.
The partnership will see Bath Rugby and Bendac make a significant investment into transforming the matchday experience at the Rec with the installation of a new market-leading large-format LED display and a replacement scoreboard during the 2021/22 season, with further enhancements planned for the near future.
Advanced display technology will also be installed at Farleigh House to assist with coaching, analysis and training. Bendac’s display technology enables real-time analysis and has already proven to have a positive impact on improving the communication of key messages across the squad.
To further represent the strength of the partnership, Bath Rugby and Bendac will work together to offer career development opportunities for both the senior squad and Academy. Bendac will provide a number of placement opportunities enabling our players to gain first-hand experience of working in a fast-paced, innovative tech company.
