Australian National Rugby League team Newcastle Knights has agreed a three-year extension to its long-standing sponsorship agreement with private health insurance company Nib.
Under the deal, Nib will continue as a major partner of Newcastle Knights and its branding will remain on the sleeve of the team’s playing and retail jerseys through to the 2017 season.
Nib was a supporter of the Knights upon their foundation in 1988 and it has held the sleeve sponsor position since 2003.
“The Newcastle Knights sponsorship plays an important role in delivering national brand exposure for Nib as well as meaningful engagement with NRL fans and the Hunter community,” Nib chief executive officer Mark Fitzgibbon said.
Newcastle Knights are currently 14th in the NRL standings after six wins and 12 losses in 2014.
