ARU Confidence in Title Sponsor Negotiations

January 9, 2017

Australian Rugby Union Chief Operating Officer Rob Clarke has announced he is confident that a new sponsor for the Super Rugby club competition will be found before the 2017 campaign begins.

Super Rugby has been without a title sponsor since August 2016, when Asteron Life opted not to extend the three-season deal they penned in 2014.

The 2017 edition begins on February 23, and talks with prospective backers are continuing.

Rob Clarke said, ‘the two or three companies we’re talking to are global brands’.
