The National Rugby League club, Melbourne Storm, has announced an extension of its partnership with its longest-serving premium partner, Suzuki.
The Japanese automobile company has sponsored the rugby league club since 2008. Most recently, in 2020, the automaker extended its sponsorship agreement for another two years.
The Suzuki logo will continue to appear on game day and training apparel, as well as a variety of gameday and digital assets, through the end of 2023.
The new agreement commitment falls in line with the Storm forward Kenny Bromwich’s 200th NRL match this weekend, and Suzuki is participating in the commemorations by providing 200 free tickets to the Storm’s round nine clashes with the St George Illawarra Dragons at AAMI Park.
They will be distributed through a public competition on the Storm and Suzuki’s Facebook pages.
Melbourne Storm, General Manager, Daniel Cullinan, said, “The Suzuki name has become synonymous with Storm and we’re very happy to have them on board through to the end of the 2023 season.”
Suzuki Australia, General Manager Michael Pachota, commented, “Signing on as major partners with the Melbourne Storm in 2008 was a key initiative for the Suzuki brand in Australia and continues to be a highly successful fit for both parties.”
