Some old Wigan RL sponsor adverts...

Post by ancientnloyal » Thu Nov 21, 2019 12:27 pm

Came across an old NEXT bag from the 90s which I forgot about. I must have commandeered it when I moved out from the parents. Full of old Wigan and GB Final programmes! Thought I’d share a few old adverts. They really did us proud back then like Puma, Coca Cola, Heinz... I posted on my twitter but with no followers apart from my local MP and Josie 😂 thought I’d share here

Those were the days. I used to have a green version of the Puma ball but if anyone has that ball in white I will pay a Kings Ransom to acquire one!

Rugby, Family and Strava... that’s about it for me to be honest!

Love them. When Rugby League was at the top of the sports 🏉🏉🍒⚪️🍒⚪️♥️♥️
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Super League has ruined everything for RL :evil, Everything ticked along nicely, CC, regular season and internationals where all in sync, Wigan where massively known outside the game, Big companies where interested, It all went tits up with the appearance of Super Duper League.

ps

Why won't Heinz be our main sponsor?
