Queensland Rugby Union (QRU) is set to deliver Rugby programs across Queensland thanks to a new two-year partnership with Brisbane-based car dealership Westpoint Autos.
Under the agreement, the family-owned business will feature on the back of both the playing and training shorts for the St.George Queensland Reds Super Rugby and Super W teams.
As the official sponsor of the QRU’s auto category, Westpoint Autos will also provide vehicles to the QRU to allow staff to deliver Rugby programs across the state.
QRU Head of Commercial, Malcolm Watts, said: “It’s fantastic to have Westpoint Autos on board as a partner of Queensland Rugby and the Reds.
“They are an iconic family business and their investment will give our staff the tools to get out-and-about across Queensland to grow the game.
“It’s also great to see them supporting our Queensland Reds men’s and women’s teams, with their logo featuring on the Super Rugby and Super W shorts when they are training and playing.
“QRU is now able to align our Rugby community with an experienced dealership who represents a large range of notable automotive brands,” Watts said.
Westpoint Autos Dealer Principal, Luke Hawkins, said: “We are excited and proud about the future of our partnership with QRU.
“Our dealership has always been involved in local sponsorships including junior sports clubs, and we pride ourselves on this community involvement.
“It is a natural progression to develop on this and with Rugby Union as our dominant local football code we felt this would be an excellent opportunity.
“We look forward to working with all aspects of the Queensland Reds team, through to grassroots and of course Reds fans to grow this wonderful sport and support the club.
“To see our vehicles with both logos displayed, driving around Brisbane will be wonderful,” Hawkins said.
