A memorandum of understanding was signed today at the National Football Stadium in Port Moresby.
PNGRFL chairman, Sandis Tsaka, said the MoU will be followed by the signing of a sponsorship contract early next year.
“Their support has gone from a silver level support to gold sponsorship for PNGRFL across all its brands,” stated Tsaka.
“Significant part of the support goes towards the SP Hunters, where they get the gold level sponsorship. But part of the sponsorship is also going towards supporting the PNG Orchids and the women’s programs and the National Schools Rugby League program.”
Tsaka said the signing signifies the WRC’s commitment and confidence in the partnership that they have had with the PNGRFL over the last six years.
As a non-government sporting organisation, the PNGRFL said it values assistance it receives from its partners and sponsors.
The WRC is no stranger to rugby league as their brand, Boroko Motors, has been a partner of PNGRFL since 2013.
“They have been what we in rugby league have passionately called, ‘the wheels of rugby league’,” stated Tsaka.
He further thanked WRCPNG country manager, John Mangos, and his team for backing rugby league.
