MTN has been confirmed as the new headline sponsor of the Springboks.
As revealed by SARugbymag.co.za on 26 May, the multinational mobile telecommunications company has agreed to a three-year deal with SA Rugby.
'We’re delighted to welcome MTN as our new headline Springbok sponsor,' said SA Rugby CEO Roux. 'It has been a tough couple of years from a financial perspective for SA Rugby – and our challenges certainly remain – but this partnership marks the crossing of a watershed for SA Rugby.'
The new Bok jersey, without the MTN logo, has already been launched and distributed. Asics aims to have the MTN-branded jersey available for fans to purchase for the start of the Rugby Championship.
