Western Province Professional Rugby has announced a multi-year extension of its partnership with logistics giant DHL.
It’ll see their long-standing relationship through until the end of the 2023/2024 season.
DHL first signed on as title sponsor of the two professional teams in 2011 and is already the longest-standing title sponsorship in Western Province Rugby’s history.
DHL, which is also the ‘Official Logistics Partner’ for the upcoming British & Irish Lions Tour, has a strong connection to rugby on a global scale, with partnerships with the World Rugby Sevens Series, Rugby World Cup 2019 and Harlequins, to name a few.
“At DHL, we believe in the importance of connecting – connecting people, businesses, communities and opportunities – and through this partnership we pride ourselves on being the ‘team behind the team’, both on and off the field,” said Megan Collinicos, VP Marketing for DHL Express Sub Saharan Africa. “Our partnership has evolved over the years and the success of the DHL Stormers and DHL WP brands across the globe has given us many opportunities to engage with key stakeholders, not just in South Africa, but in other important markets for us across the world. As the DHL Stormers prepare for their inclusion in the upcoming European PRO Rugby tournament, this gives us great scope to leverage the partnership even further in the years ahead.”
