HOUSTON, TEXAS – (October 21, 2013) – CRC-Evans Pipeline International, Inc. (CRC-Evans) – an international leader in pipeline construction technologies and product development – announces the extension of its original two-year sponsorship of Brora Rangers of the Scottish Highland Soccer League for three more years. The extended partnership is now contracted until 2016.

“CRC Evans is delighted to expand our sponsorship of Brora Rangers and build on an extremely positive relationship that has developed over the past two seasons,” says Scott Black, Managing Director for CRC-Evans Offshore.

With this sponsorship, CRC-Evans ensures Brora Rangers can further hone their talents both on and off the field.

“Support for the local community and for Brora’s youth development program is a very important aspect of this partnership to CRC Evans Offshore,” Black said.

“Brora Rangers are delighted to have the CRC-Evans name on our shirts, particularly given the stature and strength of the brand,” said Kevin MacKay, Team Director of Brora Rangers. “We look forward to working closely with CRC- Evans over the next three years and introducing our Club to more fans worldwide.”
