Storm, Suzuki extend partnership into 16th year

 Melbourne Storm are proud to announce a four-year extension with long-time major partner Suzuki Australia.

The agreement will see Suzuki Australia take their association with the Club into its 16th year.

Since 2008, the Suzuki logo has held pride of place on the sleeve of the purple jersey. In that time, the support of Suzuki Australia has helped Melbourne Storm enjoy more than a decade of sustained success that has culminated in five Grand Final appearances, three of them victorious.

 Suzuki Australia have enjoyed a similar rise during that period to now stand as one of the premier car manufacturers in the country.

 Both organisations share the mutual values of family, accountability, hard work, respect and passion. That synergy has been the driving force behind the partnership that continues to thrive.

 Storm CEO Dave Donaghy said the four-year extension was testament to the ever-growing relationship between both organisations.

 "In the dynamic business of modern sport, we are proud to have a major partner such as Suzuki Australia that have been unwavering in their support for the last 11 years and counting.

"Our players proudly wear Suzuki’s iconic logo on their sleeve which is a symbol of the success we have both shared together for over a decade now.

"We are a proud family here at Melbourne Storm and we certainly consider Suzuki as a major part of our family."

Suzuki Australia General Manager – Automotive, Mr. Michael Pachota stated the extension was a major win for both brands. 

“We are thrilled to continue the partnership with the best performing rugby league team in the country.” 

“The NRL remains one of the highest profile sports in Australia and Melbourne Storm is the perfect vehicle for Suzuki to promote its rapidly growing image.”
