Queensland Reds extend with main sponsor

Australian Super Rugby franchise the Queensland Reds has signed a three-year extension to its naming-rights partnership with St. George Bank.

The new deal between the financial services group and the Queensland Rugby Union will bring the two parties’ association up to a decade.

As part of the agreement, Reds fans who acquire a St. George Reds Amplify credit card will receive a free three-game ‘Red Hot Flexi Pass’ membership. A range of other initiatives will also be rolled out over the next three years.

Naushad Ahmed, head of retail banking for St. George Queensland & Western Australia, said: “This partnership with Queensland Rugby enables us as a bank to have a large footprint across the state which sees participants from over 200 clubs and 500 schools take part in rugby.

“We’ve been working closely with the QRU to launch a number of initiatives in the 2018 season, including our ‘You play, we’ll pay program’, where any participant with an eligible St.George bank account can have a portion of their rugby registration paid.”
