WALLABIES’ SWEET DEAL

-

THE Wallabies have secured Cadbury as their new major sponsor following the decision of Qantas to cut ties with Rugby Australia.

The airline’s three-decade sponsorshi­p of the Wallabies – reportedly worth about $5 million a year – ended in 2020 as Qantas reacted to the financial hit caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

RA’s search for a new principal partner ended on Thursday when it was announced

Cadbury, a British multinatio­nal confection­ery company owned by Mondelez Internatio­nal, had signed a five-year sponsorshi­p deal.

The Cadbury logo will appear on the front of Wallabies jerseys and training apparel, as well as on the shorts of the Wallaroos, the Australian women’s rugby team.

“What a fantastic and proud day for Australian rugby,” RA chief executive officer Andy Marinos said.
