Troubled Bulldogs sign new

The embattled Bulldogs have today finally announced some positive news: the signing of a new sponsor.

The club?s new CEO, Malcolm Noad, confirmed that Auto Group Limited would be their new sleeve sponsor, effective immediately.

Auto Group is one of Australia's largest independent automotive organisations. The company operates motor vehicle auctions, car dealerships and fleet management businesses on a national basis, which among other activities involves the sale of over 100,000 motor vehicles per annum.

The news of the sponsorship comes as the club begins to become more confident that none of their players will be charged over sexual assault allegations made by a young woman earlier this year.

It?s understood that Police simply don?t have enough evidence to charge any player over the alleged incident which happened at a Coffs Harbour resort.

Of the new sponsorship, Bulldogs CEO Malcolm Noad said it?s a step in the right direction as the club continues to re-build both on and off the field.

?We are delighted to welcome Auto Group to our family of corporate partners at the Bulldogs,? Mr Noad said. ?We recognise that their support is a statement of faith in the Bulldogs Club and its future and we look forward to working with Auto Group and ensuring that their commitment to the Club and its members is rewarded.?

Mark England, Managing Director of Auto Group, said: ?We believe in the Bulldogs and their history of producing great champions, and we look forward to having a long and productive relationship with the Club and its supporters. Auto Group conducts local car auctions in Belmore, Enfield and Smithfield - two of which are situated within the local Bulldog Community.?

The company has committed to a three-year deal with the club.
