We're incredibly excited about the first ever GUINNESS PRO12 season. The GUINNESS brand has a long-standing heritage in rugby and our new partnership with PRO12, one of the most competitive leagues in world rugby, marks an on-going commitment to the sport we love.

As Title Sponsor we will be at each GUINNESS PRO12 club across Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Italy during the 2014/15 season to help ensure fans get together and celebrate great days out at the rugby whilst enjoying a perfect pint of the black stuff!

GUINNESS is also continuing its commitment to promoting Responsible Drinking as the Official Responsible Drinking Partner of GUINNESS PRO12.
