  • NRMA Insurance replaced Vodafone as Australia’s home Test series naming rights sponsor
  • Vodafone decided not to take up a one-year option for the 2022-23 season
  • NRMA Insurance wanted a sponsorship platform with national reach
Cricket Australia has benefited from the popularity of its men’s national test team, increasing TV audiences and a strong playing schedule in the sale of its domestic Test series naming rights to NRMA Insurance.
