Steinhoff is no longer the Blitzboks’ sponsor after the global retail giant was hit by an accounting scandal.
According to Netwerk24, the parties came to an agreement on the termination of the partnership in December, but it has not been made public yet.
The #LoveRugby logo will appear on Blitzboks jersey until a new sponsor is found.
When Steinhoff CEO Marcus Jooste resigned in early December, the company’s shares crashed by 61%. However, the Blitzboks still had the Steinhoff logo on their jerseys for the Cape Town Sevens in mid-December.
They are next in action at the Sydney Sevens, which starts on 26 January.
