AFL Australian rules football team Essendon has announced an extended two-year sponsorship deal with Toll Group.
The transport company has served as a premium partner to Essendon since 2011. It benefits from branding space on Essendon’s playing shorts and provides the club with its property van.
Essendon spent last year at the centre of a highly damaging doping scandal and Toll Group managing director Brian Kruger said the club’s commitment to reform was an important factor in the company continuing its relationship.
Kruger said: “Following our discussions about the changes within the club, and Essendon’s plans to continuously improve, Toll has great confidence in the future of the club on and off the field, and is pleased to continue our support.”
