Vantage BMS steps up to shirt sponsor status with NRL’s Cowboys

Australian NRL rugby league club the North Queensland Cowboys has agreed a two-season shirt sponsorship deal with Vantage BMS, a local company that offers technological solutions to agriculture customers, civil contractors, builders and miners.

Vantage BMS has backed the Cowboys for the past 25 years, but has stepped up to secure branding space on the lower back of the club’s shirt for the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

Cowboys chief executive Jeff Reibel said: “Even before our club was born, Vantage BMS co-founders Lew Brandon and Kevin Muspratt were helping us to get the playing field and spectator hills ready and were one of a number of North Queenslanders who gave up their time to make sure that the club could start.

“They supported us when we started our club and then took that a step further and have been administering and supporting the Burdekin Bushrangers, our first ever corporate area which formed in 1995.”
