Steggles re-new major sponsorship of Roosters for a further two years
On the eve of the 2013 NRL season getting underway, the Sydney Roosters are thrilled to announce that major sponsor Steggles has reaffirmed their commitment to the club by renewing their agreement for a further two seasons.
Steggles first joined the Roosters in 2010 and as part of the agreement, Steggles will continue their partnership as Roosters major sponsor adorning the front of the Roosters playing and training strips.
Both Steggles and the Sydney Roosters have a long and proud Australian history with a drive to assist the community and charities, and a key component of the successful arrangement is the Steggles Roosters Charity Nest initiative that has raised more than $800,000 for Australian children's charities in the last three years.
Along with other fundraising opportunities, the Charity Nest will again continue to be an integral contributor to funds raised. For every point the Sydney Roosters beat their opposition by in the 2013 season, Steggles will donate $1,000 to the Steggles Roosters Charity Nest, while the Sydney Roosters will also contribute $250 per point. The Sydney Roosters will also contribute $1,000 for every win the club's NYC team records in the season.
"We are over the moon to make this announcement on the eve of our season getting underway. We have made numerous changes here at the Roosters in the pre-season, from top to bottom, and its fantastic that our major partner Steggles have seen the change, bought into our vision and have committed until at least the end of 2015,
