Toshiba has announced a special discount scheme linked to the performance of customers’ home nations in the Rugby World Cup 2015.
A company’s home nation is defined according to where its registered office is located. Therefore, a contractor with its registered office in England has England as its home nation, and so on for companies registered in Wales, Scotland and Ireland (including Northern Ireland).
Following the kick off of the opening game between England and Fiji on Friday 18 September, all orders for Toshiba equipment will receive an additional 5 per cent discount on top the customer’s standard discount. The offer will continue in respect of orders placed throughout the Group stages of the tournament.
If a company’s home nation team progresses to the knockout stages, then this 5 per cent discount will automatically be increased to 7.5 per cent for so long as the team remains in the knockout stages.
Once a home nation drops out of the competition, and in any event at the end of the tournament, the discount will no longer apply and the company’s pricing will revert to standard terms.
David Dunn, Director and General Manager of Toshiba Air Conditioning, said: “The Rugby World Cup 2015 is shaping up to be the sporting highlight of the year. We want to harness the excitement and support our sponsorship of the event with this special incentive scheme, to give customers across the UK and Ireland one more reason to get involved and cheer on their national side.”
“It goes without saying that we are entirely neutral when it comes to the teams and the outcome of the tournament. Except to say, of course, it would be a fitting culmination if at least one of the home nations made it to the final.”
Toshiba Corporation is an Official Sponsor of the Rugby World Cup 2015, renewing the company’s support for the biggest tournament in rugby for the third consecutive time. The event will see 48 matches take place across England and Wales from 18 September to 31 October, 2015.
