The NSW Waratahs and Ricoh Australia today announced a partnership that will see the company feature prominently on match day, with jersey sponsorship and grass signage at home games.
Ricoh will occupy the collar position of the 2015 jersey which will be unveiled next year at the season launch, and worn in the first home match of the season – the Round 1 clash against the Western Force on Sunday February 15.
NSW Waratahs CEO Jason Allen said the partnership was an exciting development for the club, which has enjoyed a remarkable year so far.
“To have an international industry leader like Ricoh on board with us really reflects how well we are travelling,” Allen said.
