Strathmore water to make a splash at Glasgow 2018

Ross Murdoch and Bonnie the seal pool together to launch partnership

Strathmore water has been named as Official Partner of the Glasow 2018 European Championships.

Strathmore water has been named as Official Partner of the Glasgow 2018 European Championships, the new multi-sport event which brings together the existing European Championships of some of the continent’s major sports including Aquatics, Cycling, Gymnastics, Rowing and Triathlon, with a new Team Golf Championships.

Much-loved Scottish athlete and Glasgow 2018 sporting ambassador Ross Murdoch joined the Glasgow 2018 mascot Bonnie the seal, to help the drinks company launch the partnership.

Fresh from winning a silver medal at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, Ross is thirsty for success at the European Swimming Championships at Tollcross International Swimming Centre this August, while Bonnie will be cheering on competitors from across Europe over the 11 days of sporting action.

It’s great to see the European Swimming Championships as part of a new, multi-sport event that is being co-hosted by Berlin and Glasgow. It’s brilliant that such big names like Strathmore Water are throwing their support behind this inaugural event.

Strathmore water, which is bottled at source in the Vale of Strathmore, will be supplied to hydrate around 3,000 athletes expected to compete in venues across Scotland between 2 and 12 August, as well as officials, staff, volunteers and medical teams on the ground.

The AG Barr brand has a long-standing reputation for supporting mass-participation events across the UK, helping world class athletes and spectators stay hydrated.

Strathmore want to be at the forefront of recycling at the Championships, providing the city of Glasgow and the UK with a world class and truly sustainable sporting event, working together with Glasgow 2018 and Glasgow City Council. There will be over 500 recycling bins distributed across venues to encourage the recycling of all Strathmore water bottles consumed at the Championships along with other recyclable waste.

Strathmore water joins Atos, Gleneagles, Harper Macleod LLP, Avid, NVT Group, Aggreko, Glasgow Airport and Arco as part of the Glasgow 2018 sponsor family.
