SANZAR extends sponsorship with Gilbert
February 10, 2014
SANZAR is proud to announce a two-year extension of its long-standing partnership with GILBERT to continue its role as the exclusive Vodacom Super Rugby ball supplier.

Greg Peters, SANZAR CEO said, “GILBERT has been a great supporter of rugby in the Southern Hemisphere and is one of our key relationships, going all the way back to the competition’s inception in 1996.

“I’m sure our players will be thrilled with GILBERT’s reappointment as their balls are widely recognised as the best in the world, providing an unmatched level of quality and consistency.

“This was emphasised during extensive product testing throughout a select group of Super Rugby players in all three territories where the GILBERT ball performed exceptionally well.”

Nick Gray, GILBERT Sales & Marketing Manager said, “Everyone at GILBERT is delighted to be extending our partnership with SANZAR and Super Rugby.

“We have enjoyed being a part of this thrilling competition since 1996 and look forward to the continuation of the expansive play which has seen Super Rugby lead the way in global rugby entertainment.”

Jon Clarke, GILBERT Brand Manager added, “In recognition of our renewal we are delighted to announce that we have introduced a new range of Super Rugby match ball designs for the 2014 season.

“We wanted to produce a design that better reflected the speed and excitement of Super Rugby while also highlighting the fierce rivalries within each conference. Although we have retained our traditional trademark ellipse, it now includes a series of stripes that accentuate the rotation of the ball in flight and the addition of lime green increases visibility for players.

"We have also produced a ball designed for local derby matches which features a gold (Australia), silver (New Zealand) or green (South Africa) trim as a nod to the home nation. Replicas of these newly designed balls will be available in stores from early March."
