Jets commercial director Mark Duffield-Thomas said: “This is one of the largest sponsorship deals in the club’s history.
“When we took this opportunity to market it was important for us to secure a strong partner that recognises the potential of football and wants to partner with the Jets.”
BLK is well known in the region through their sponsorships across National Rugby League, Super Rugby and AFL.
