Melbourne Storm is pleased to announce a landmark deal for the Club, with major partner Crown Resorts extending their partnership for a further five years from 2016-2020.
The new agreement will see Crown Resorts maintain major partner status and retain front of jersey brand positioning on-field.
Additionally, a key focus of the partnership will be to create unique or money-can't-buy Crown experiences for Crown Resorts customers plus working closely to add value to the Loyalty programs of both companies.
The five year deal is the longest single term contract signed by Melbourne Storm and reflects the strength of the brand and the confidence in Storm as a business partner.
Already in its fifth year, the new deal will take the Crown Resorts and Storm alliance into a 10 year union.
