Keegan Hirst Player Sponsorship | Supporting Halifax RLFC

When we’re not sorting out event transport, Stagefreight makes some time for charitable work in our local community. We’re happy to announce our sport sponsorship of Keegan Hirst, a new player for Halifax Rugby League Club!

About Halifax Rugby League Club

Halifax RLFC was formed back in 1873. They were the first team to win the Yorkshire Cup in 1878, and were founding members of the Rugby League in 1895. From there they continued to be very successful, producing one of the best teams the early 20th century had to offer. The team also finished 4th in the 2018 Betfred Championship.

The Shay Stadium is Halifax RLFC’s home ground, and one of the leading grounds in British rugby league. It can hold over 14,000 rugby fans for each match.

About Keegan Hirst

Stagefreight are proud and excited to be sponsoring Keegan Hirst, the Halifax team’s newest player. Player sponsorships are a key way that local businesses can support Halifax RLFC.

When Ian met Keegan


Keegan officially joined the team in September 2019, coming from the Super League team Wakefield Trinity. He has 300 career appearances under his belt, with 66 of these in the Super League! Keegan also has extensive championship experience with Batley and Featherstone; he’ll be with Halifax until 2021.

Keegan Hirst is sure to bring experience and leadership to the Halifax team. In an interview on the RLFC website, Keegan said:

I’ve really enjoyed my time so far here, I’ve come into a side that hasn’t had the best of seasons, but they are a great set of lads, and I am impressed with the club and I really want to play for Halifax. What they’ve got going on here is infectious and I want to be a part of that going forward.

The fans have been great so far, they’re quite vocal and I hope we can get back to winning ways and get plenty more Fax fans coming down to games to cheer the lads on.

Simon Grix, Halifax’s Head Coach, told the Halifax Courier:

He’s a real ‘one-hundred percenter’, always looking for that bit extra. He prepares properly and does whatever he needs to do in the best interests of the team.

In that regard, he walks the walk and he’s also prepared to talk the talk; if he sees someone who’s not doing everything they can, he’s not afraid to call them out.

Stagefreight’s Sports Sponsorship

Stagefreight’s Ian Uttley said:

We’re excited to be supporting Halifax RLFC. The new sponsorship plan is a fantastic opportunity for local businesses to get involved and to support a cracking club.

Keegan Hirst is an awesome rugby player and great bloke. Like Stagefreight he has a desire to succeed, which is great for the club. And we can’t wait to see him in action in 2020.

As an event transport company we’re keen to support sporting heroes, both on a local and national level. That’s why as well as sponsoring Keegan, we’re sponsoring the team’s training wrestling kits too.

Stagefreight has also sponsored motorcycling legend Steven Procter, who’s done us proud on the racing circuit.

The Event Transport Experts

We’re proud to #BackTheFax as part of our sport sponsorship, and we’d like to wish Halifax a great 2020 rugby season.

We have plenty of experience with live event logistics, and we’re here to help if you’d like to put on an event.

Before we arrive at the event, we’ll plan the most cost-effective and fuel-efficient route to you. Not only does this save you money, but it ensures all of your equipment arrives on time, every time.

We know how important timing is to live events, and our experienced lead driver carefully plans trailer arrival for each job. This ensures each trailer arrives exactly when you need it.

If you need any help with lighting choices, our drivers can offer advice based on their expertise. If you have a stage that needs building, they can even help your own team put it together!
