Just champion for SMP!

SMP Partners is the latest Isle of Man business to become a Team Isle of Man Champion.

A total of 10 Island firms will be announced as Team Isle of Man Champions in the countdown to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

It's part of an initiative to help raise funds to send a strong team to the event.

The Isle of Man Commonwealth Games Association (IOMCGA) is the charity responsible for the publicity, fundraising, travel and support for the Island’s team.

It says the Champions initiative is a vital part of preparations not just for Glasgow 2014, but also for the 2018 Games in Australia, and the Commonwealth Youth Games in Samoa in 2015, and St Lucia in 2017.

The Association relies upon fundraising events and donations to fund Team Isle of Man’s participation.
