As many clubs would know, retaining or finding a major sponsor is never an easy task – but when a club can have the satisfaction of signing a major sponsor to stay on for a few years, that is what they call a win in the sponsor stakes.
For the Manly Sea Eagles, they have done just that, with their current sponsor Kaspersky, an IT security software company, agreeing to remain as the sponsor of the Manly football club, for the next 3 seasons.
This will mean that the Kaspersky logo will remain ever-present on the jerseys (both home and away), until the end of the 2015 NRL season.
Harry Chueng, who is the Managing Director at Kaspersky Asia Pacific, said that the company is honoured to continue serving as Manly’s major sponsor.
â€œWe are very excited to continue our relationship with the Manly Sea Eagles. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with the club and its wider corporate networks.â€
For the Eagles Chief Operating Officer David Perry, he too is pleased that the club has agreed to an new sponsorship deal with Kaspersky.
â€œWe are extremely proud to continue this valued partnership with such an internationally respected brand,â€ Mr Perry said.
â€œKaspersky is a world leader in Internet security software and to have their support for the long-term is a huge boost for the club.â€
â€œWe sincerely thank them for their ongoing support and we look forward to assisting Kaspersky Lab to grow their business in this expanding market.â€
