Rugby Australia has renewed its partnership with Land Rover, which sees the car manufacturer continue as the official vehicle of the Wallabies until the end of 2024.
Australia’s national rugby team will wear the Land Rover logo on the back of its team shorts on game days and at training, whilst it will also be displayed ‘prominently’ on the Gilbert Test match rugby balls.
Andy Marinos, Rugby Australia CEO, stated: “Rugby Australia is thrilled to be able to continue our partnership with Land Rover for another three years. The values of Rugby Australia have great synergy with those at Land Rover and the Wallabies will wear their logo with pride throughout the Test seasons.
“Land Rover has a long history of supporting Rugby around the globe and we look forward to continuing to have a successful partnership that benefits both organisations for many years ahead.”
The deal now spans over seven seasons, with Land Rover first linking with Rugby Australia in 2018. The extension also looks to highlight Land Rover’s commitment to supporting rugby at all levels.
Furthermore, UK-based Land Rover explained that it has been ‘at the heart of global Rugby’ for over two decades, from grassroots to the elite, via partnerships with Rugby World Cup as well as national and club teams.
“For over 20 years, Land Rover has actively supported rugby through partnerships globally, nationally, and through grassroots programs,” added Shannon Edwards, Marketing Director at Jaguar Land Rover Australia.
“With shared values of passion, integrity, leadership, and a commitment to going above and beyond, we couldn’t be more excited to write the next chapter of our partnership with the Wallabies, engaging with fans across the country and helping to grow the game.”
