ACT Brumbies land rich sponsorship deal with Plus500 for 2017 Super Rugby season Plus500 has jumped on board and it is believed the Brumbies will boast the most lucrative sponsorship jersey in Australian Super Rugby next year.
Plus500 chief executive Asaf Elimelech said: "The Brumbies is a natural fit for us as Australia represents one of our key markets, while the team shares a winning mentality and mutual passion for striving for success." The Brumbies sent interim boss Phil Thomson and general manager Simon Chester to China last month on a business trip to investigate ways to break into the massive Asian market. The Brumbies' major sponsor of the ray ban rb8307 past two years, Aquis, is based in Hong Kong and the club is keen to play a match in China. E commerce giant Alibaba has committed $100 million to grow rugby in China over the next 10 years. Michael Thomson was the Greater China sports marketing director for Nike three years ago and the Brumbies hope his knowledge of the region will boost their mission. "One of the things about the Brumbies, we need ray ban online shopping to get things right in Canberra," Thomson said. "That is the most crucial things for us. One of the challenges we have is the size of our region. "We've got good, loyal support here but we are constrained by the fact we're 500,000 people. As a result of that we need to look at how we expand the brand. "The direct flights to Singapore open up doors and the Chinese are certainly keen on rugby with the $100 million that ray ban sunglasses wayfarer sale has been put in. "We've got a brand that is recognised globally and that does provide opportunity for us. Lucky for me I spent two years in Shanghai working for Nike doing exactly those sorts of things. "We'll definitely look at China, we'd be crazy if we didn't.
But the first part of the focus has to be getting this community in Canberra sorted." Chester has worked to maintain the Brumbies' sponsorship portfolio despite the club's off field dramas this year, which was highlighted by an ugly legal battle between former chief executive Michael Jones and the board. Some Super Rugby clubs are continuing without major sponsors while the who sells ray bans ARU is still trying to sell naming rights sponsorship for Super Rugby in Australia.
