LEADING Huddersfield computer company Microworld have become the main sponsors of the Giants as part of a package which could net the Super League club over £100,000.
The Armitage Bridge-based business have signed a one-year deal to become the club's principal shirt sponsor.
And with the Giants now closing in on an alternative shirt backer, the McAlpine club are expected to start the Super League IX campaign having received a lucrative six-figure main sponsors' boost.
It's a deal which has delighted both the Giants and Microworld, whose name will be on the front of the newly-designed home shirt, and company managing director Craig Thompson believes the link is the perfect match.
"Microworld has been in businsess for 20 years, which for the computer industry is some going," he said.
"So we wanted to celebrate by supporting a sports club which is proving just as successful.
"Right now that means supporting the Giants, who have just come off the back of their most successful season in Super League and look set to build on that success.
"Initially, we've agreed a one-year deal and I'm sure it will go well. But our aim already is to see the relationship continue and grow."
Microworld specialise in installing business computer systems and include among their clients Easygroup, which takes in the Easyjet airline company.
The business is new to the growing list of Giants' sponsors, with the deal ending any thoughts of the club holding a main sponsors lottery, which proved so successful last season.
Many businesses had expressed a strong desire to be included in a similar process for 2004, but chief executive Ralph Rimmer believes that venture could prove a one-off.
"The lottery was a great success and a lot of fun," he said.
"But we believe it is better to start developing long-term relationships with credible and successful companies at this level.
"This helps further strengthen the future of the club, and we're absolutely delighted Microworld have come on board."
