Yep £2m a year is big but who is likely to want to sponsor them again. This is bigger than relegation, I think they will have to disband and start afresh!

The only surprise is it has taken them so long.
When is it effective? Immediately or at the end of the existing deal?

End of this season is being reported (one year early). Stadium naming rights reportedly still up in the air

If it weren't for the fact that Wray literally has more money than he can spend and is Sarries thru and thru i'd agree with you. Sadly, they will just walk thru this like they do everything else.

Do you really think so? He doesn’t like going to matches any more. Frankly he may have money to burn but I think he may think enough is enough! His relationship with the other owners is very strained and CVC will have a massive voice in proceedings.

Would love it if Allianz put that money into sponsoring the Championship-would make up much of the supposed shortfall mentioned in the other thread. Appalling that the Championship clubs seem to have been abandoned if the article is true, and so bloody typical that those with money do everything they can to keep it rather than see the value of sharing their wealth.

Surely "Barratt Developments" might be interested in a "Specsavers" sort of way? Couldn't they also use some of the money from Itoje's image rights and name the stadium after him?

Cheers Matt and WT. Blowing in the wind no doubt but decided to email Allianz with the idea. You can but try!

You do have to wonder how long Wray will want to stay.

Funding 50% of the losses alongside Remgro and being lauded as the Saint of English club rugby was probably enjoyable but funding 100% of growing losses whilst being lambasted as a cheat is probably less fun!

Agree this is a big deal but not only for Saracens but for rugby in general. Alliance will be driven solely by their own best interests and they may decide the money can be better invested in another sport or art or culture.

I agree entirely with the sentiment but the problem is that with the Cheats being in the Championship next season it could be perceived that Allianz are continuing their support albeit indirectly.

Hypothetical anyway because it's a fanciful idea but let's face it, Sarries will stroll that league next season, and the RFU pulling the rug from under the Championship clubs only widens the financial gap. If, by some miracle, Allianz did step in it wouldn't aid Sarries.

But my point is that it would still link Allianz with the Cheats next season which wouldn't do the former any PR favours.
