North Melbourne zooms off with Mazda extension

Australian Football League club North Melbourne has renewed its major partnership with Japanese car manufacturer Mazda.

The deal will run for three years, from 2017 to 2019, extending the partnership to 21 seasons.

As part of the new deal, captain Andrew Swallow will remain the Aussie rules club’s Mazda ambassador.

“Mazda have been a big part of North Melbourne for almost two decades now and we’re delighted to be continuing that partnership into a 21st year,” the club’s chairman, James Brayshaw, said. “Not many clubs around the world are able to enjoy the support of such a loyal major sponsor and we couldn’t be happier to be still working with Mazda in a very mutually beneficial partnership.”
