Allianz to Sponsor National Rugby Championship

August 20, 2014

The Australian Rugby Union has announced Allianz Australia as an official competition partner of the Buildcorp National Rugby Championship and official NRC Referees Partner. 

The three-year agreement, which lasts until the end of the 2016 season, will see the Allianz logo appear on the front jersey of each referee officiating a match in the competition.

Allianz Insurance joins a strong competition partner roster that includes Buildcorp as Naming Rights Partner for the National Rugby Championship, FOX SPORTS, ASICS, Gilbert, Qantas and the Intercontinental Hotel Group.

Paul Kernaghan, Allianz’s Chief Market Manager said, “We are proud to become an official competition partner of the Buildcorp NRC. The competition’s innovative approach to making the game more attractive to the fans and the support for emerging talent aligns with Allianz’s ideals of continuous renewal and improvement.”

Andrew Fagan, General Manager, National Teams and Rugby Operations at the Australian Rugby Union, said: “We are delighted to welcome Allianz on board as one of our valued competition partners for the Buildcorp NRC.

“The calibre of brands that have chosen to align themselves with the Buildcorp NRC – not only with the tournament itself but also with each of the nine clubs – is testament to the quality of competition that the ARU has created.

“We’re all looking forward to the big kick-off and seeing some incredible Rugby being played right across the country.”
