York City Knights Business Hub member GMB Union is once again showing their commitment to the Knights in their role as Official Match Partner for Sunday’s Betfred Championship match against Widnes Vikings.

GMB Union, who is also the player sponsor of Knights’ captain Chris Clarkson, is a trade union that represents all workers with over 620,000 members who work in every type of job imaginable across public services and in private companies, too.

James Cooper, GMB Union’s Branch Secretary in York, explained more about the organisation and outlined their association with the sport:

“The GMB Union has a long and proven history of supporting rugby league clubs, their players, fans and communities across Yorkshire. Here in York, the GMB Union represents workers across every sector and over the years it has become quite evident that many of our members in York are proud fans of the Knights.

“Working with the Knights has enabled us to offer our members the chance to come and watch the rugby, as a local extra benefit, which is just one of many for being a member of the GMB Union. The York branch wanted to support the Knights with their continued development plan and hardworking members will be in attendance on Sunday, hoping for another home win!”
