WorldFirst Australia has announced it has signed an agreement to sponsor the Australian men’s rugby sevens team for the Sydney and Hamilton HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series tournaments.
Following the Sydney tournament last weekend, the Australian men’s sevens team will be heading across the ditch to Hamilton, New Zealand, where they’ll continue to battle it out with the world’s best.
WorldFirst Australia managing director Ray Ridgeway said the sponsorship is an exciting opportunity to support an iconic Aussie sporting team as they compete in two key legs of the global series, and in return, help boost its brand awareness in the sporting community across Australia and worldwide.
“We couldn’t be happier with this partnership and WorldFirst Australia will continue to cheer the team on from both the sidelines and at home,” he said.
Andy Friend, head coach of the national men’s sevens team, said: “We are extremely excited to have WorldFirst sponsor the Australian Men’s Rugby Sevens team.
“Sydney and Hamilton are two major tournaments in this global series, and we are proud to have the world-class foreign exchange business, WorldFirst supporting our team on our journey.”
