UK brewer and pub operator SA Brain and Co has renewed its sponsorship agreement with the Football Association of Wales for its continental style beer '45'.

The four-year deal is a continuation of an existing sponsorship agreement, which first began in 2006.

The new arrangement means '45' will continue to be displayed on hoardings at football grounds whenever the Wales national team play at home. It will also be served Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.

"The opportunity to continue our sponsorship with the FAW gives '45' a global stage. It is relatively new, having only been launched in 2006, and the fit with Welsh football seems a perfect one," said Stewart Dobson, head of marketing, at Brains.
