MELBOURNE – June 7, 2013: The new agreement will see Suzuki retain its sleeve sponsorship branding position with the reigning NRL premiers and world champions, as well as exclusivity in the club’s motor vehicle partner category.

Announcing the sponsorship agreement today, Suzuki Australia Automobiles General Manager Tony Devers and Melbourne Storm chairman Bart Campbell, said the partnership was a significant one for both parties.

“In its 105-year heritage, Suzuki has a culture of developing profitable and long-standing partnerships and we are very excited about continuing with Melbourne Storm,” said Devers.

“Partnering Storm, we have been through the good times and bad, but importantly we have stuck together and established ourselves as powerful players in our respective competitions.

“The NRL remains one of the highest profile sports in the country we see Melbourne Storm as the perfect vehicle for Suzuki to continue growing its image.”

Storm Chairman Bart Campbell welcomed the extension of the Suzuki partnership.

“We are thrilled that Suzuki has re-signed with Melbourne Storm for another three years. Not only have they invested in the Club throughout our long partnership, importantly they have demonstrated exceptional support and loyalty over the past six years.

“Suzuki is a terrific brand and we are pleased they will continue their coveted position on Melbourne Storm’s jersey.

“I regard it as a wonderful endorsement of the vision both parties have for the future of the club and with the ongoing commitment from an organisation like Suzuki, we look forward to the next chapter in the club’s rich history.

Storm Head Coach Craig Bellamy praised Suzuki for its ongoing support.

“The football department has appreciated Tony and the team at Suzuki’s ongoing support of the club; they are very much a valued part of our team,” said Bellamy.

Suzuki teamed up with Melbourne Storm in 2008 and consistently ranks as one of the most recognised national sports sponsors in annual media surveys.
