Video communications company, Zoom, will feature on the sternum of South Sydney Rabbitohs playing jerseys after signing a multi-year deal starting in 2019.
The two-year deal will see the Zoom logo displayed on all Rabbitohs jerseys, including home, away and special event jerseys throughout both seasons.
The Californian based company currently has ties with the NBA’s Golden State Warriors and NHL’s San Jose Sharks, with the Rabbitohs being Zoom’s first NRL corporate partnership.
Rabbitohs CEO, Blake Solly, is delighted to see Zoom move to a prominent position on the Rabbitohs’ playing kit.
“Zoom has been a fantastic partner and we’re excited to have such a respected international brand partnering with us on our jersey for the next two years,” Mr Solly said.
“Much like the Rabbitohs, the staff and products at Zoom are innovative, progressive and market leading.
“In 2018, Zoom saw great results from their partnership with us, with increased brand exposure and a number of business-to-business relationships built through our network.
“These results will only improve with their move to the sternum on our famous, red and green hooped jersey.”
In addition, a key part of the partnership will be Rabbitohs playing, coaching and administration staff using Zoom as part of their day-to-day operations, incorporating Zoom in Member webinars and extending the reach of Souths Cares in the community.
Zoom’s Head of Australia & New Zealand, Michael Chetner said: “Zoom is proud to build on our partnership from last year with the most successful club in the NRL.
“Much like the South Sydney Rabbitohs, Zoom offers an experience that can’t be matched.
“We are proud to be trusted with the responsibility of keeping the coaches, staff and administration team connected, allowing the team to focus on what they do best – winning matches.
Zoom has grown over the past few years, now with over 45 billion annual meeting minutes and triple-digit growth revenue and user growth.
