Cricket and footy. In brief.
Cricket: Apparel company Asics will continue as an official partner of Cricket Australia’s men’s and women’s international teams for another four years. Asics took over from adidas as the governing body’s apparel partner in 2011.
Australian Rules: Richmond have signed United Petroleum as their official match ball partner for the next two years.
United Petroleum’s logo will appear on the club’s match-day footballs until the end of 2018.
More Australian Rules: Greater Western Sydney Giants have signed St.George Bank as a platinum partner of the club for the next two years.
The bank’s logo will appear on the sleeve of the club’s polo shirts until the end of 2018.
And Australian Rules one more time: And continuing the theme of two-year deals in the AFL, the league’s official superannuation partner, Hostplus, has renewed its commitment to the league until the end of 2018 in a partnership that now extends to AFL Women’s.
