GILBERT Rugby is excited to announce an extension of its partnership with Rugby Victoria.
The new deal will run until at least the end of 2024, taking the relationship between Rugby Victoria and GILBERT Rugby to over a decade.
To ensure the integrity of Rugby Victoria sanctioned matches, all affiliated clubs and representative matches that fall under the jurisdiction of Rugby Victoria will continue to only use Gilbert balls.
“GILBERT and Rugby in Victoria have gone hand-in-hand for over a decade with this new partnership set to be a huge boost for all,” GILBERT Rugby Sponsorship Manager Rebecca Gray said.
“From the grassroots to the elite level, GILBERT is there every step of the way, ensuring the sport continues to go from strength-to-strength.
“We are proud to remain partnered with Rugby Victoria for at least the next two years and can’t wait to see starring performances from players across the state.”
The partnership ensures Rugby Victoria affiliated Clubs and Schools (Academy schools and VSRU schools) will receive a minimum 15% discount on full priced Gilbert rugby items.
“The strength in this partnership is witnessed in its longevity,” Rugby Victoria CEO Chris Evans said.
“Our teams set high standards with their approach to rugby and in return expect the best quality in their equipment.
“The Gilbert brand offers that reassurance. Our coaches and players know that they are using the best footballs in the market.
“We’re really pleased to be able to collaborate with GILBERT Rugby once again and we’re excited to see what we can achieve together in the next 2 years”.
The renewed partnership between Rugby Victoria and GILBERT Rugby is set to deliver an exciting future for rugby in Victoria, with both organisations committed to promoting the sport and supporting its growth across the state.
