Chemist Warehouse extends commitment to NRL

Retail pharmacy chain Chemist Warehouse has extended its partnership with Australia’s National Rugby League.

Chemist Warehouse has teamed up with the NRL as the official naming rights partner for Sunday Football in 2019.

The company partnered with the NRL in 2018 across a series of marquee matches, including the Finals Series and Grand Final, State of Origin and the Pacific Test Match.

Chemist Warehouse will activate its partnership at Brisbane Magic Round in Round Nine, where an in-stadium activation will run across the four days of competition. Alongside Brisbane Magic Round, Chemist Warehouse will also activate across NRL major events, including State of Origin and the Premiership Finals.

The NRL said the extension of the Chemist Warehouse partnership comes off the back of a successful year in 2018 for the code, with 100 per cent renewal of major partners and 18 per cent growth of corporate partnerships revenue.
