Raiders renew sponsorship deal

The Canberra Raiders will continue one of their longest running corporate partnerships, with Coca-Cola Amatil and the National Rugby League club agreeing to a new five year association today.

Coca-Cola Amatil will remain as exclusive provider of non-alcoholic drinks for the Raiders and their eight licensed clubs spread throughout the ACT, NSW and Queensland.

Coca-Cola Amatil has been in partnership with the Raiders for more than 10 years. Since their last agreement with Coca-Cola Amatil in 1999, the Raiders have expanded from three licensed clubs to eight. Coca-Cola Amatil?s Canberra Business Manager Richard Job said it had been a rewarding to watch the two organisations grow together.

?The Canberra Raiders sponsorship brings together an important partnership between Coca-Cola Amatil, the Canberra Raiders and the Queanbeyan Leagues Club group of clubs,? Mr Job said.

?We?re proud to be part of the Canberra Raiders family, as we have been for the past decade.?

Raiders General Manager Don Furner said the partnership was significant for rugby league players and fans in the ACT and surrounding districts.

?We?re delighted to have Coca-Cola Amatil back on board for another five years. The length of our partnership is testament to the success of this relationship,? Mr Furner said.

?Not only does this association help our elite players at the Raiders, it benefits grassroots rugby league. Coca-Cola Amatil has always been a keen supporter of junior coaching camps and they have a long history and big interest in supporting the Canberra District Rugby League competition.?
