The Euronics brand will once again be on show in front of a huge national television audience during the hotly anticipated Quilter Cup game taking place between the Barbarians and England at Twickenham on Sunday 25th October (kick-off 2pm).

England coach, Eddie Jones will bring a strong England side to Twickenham for the contest ahead of their trip to Italy for the re-arranged final game in the Guinness Six Nations 2020. The Barbarians team will feature a host of internationals, including former England captain, Chris Robshaw under the leadership of former Scotland coach, Vern Cotter. The Euronics logo will take pride of place across the Barbarians shirts.

“This game is of huge interest for rugby followers and sports fans who have been starved of top class international rugby for so many months,” says Stuart Cook, CEO of Combined Independents (Holdings) Ltd (CIH), part of Euronics, Europe’s largest electrical buying organisation. “It’s fantastic that the Euronics brand will be part of this continuing return of elite sport in the UK and on show at such a prominent occasion for a huge TV audience. We have a great association with the Barbarians and we’re very much looking forward to this important game. It will remind viewers that the vast majority of our members are open for business and able to meet customer demand for electrical appliances that can be purchased locally and delivered, installed and supported by their local retailer.”

Ahead of the game, Stuart Cook and CIH Chairman, Steve Scoggings, chatted with Chris Robshaw and Richard Wrigglesworth of Saracens, both part of the Barbarians team on Sunday. CIH members will have exclusive access to a recording of this interview after the game.

Combined Independents (Holdings) Ltd (CIH) is an electrical buying group, part of Euronics, Europe’s largest electrical buying group, which operates in over 30 countries with an annual turnover of €19 billion. With around 500 members and approximately 1000 stores across the UK and Ireland, CIH provides a range of services and benefits to support each independent electrical retailer, as well as exclusive ranges that the members’ customers are unable to find anywhere else on the high street, or internet.
