Force secure Santos as long-term partner
The Western Force is thrilled to enhance its commitment to developing grassroots rugby in Western Australia through a new major long-term partnership with Santos, the state’s biggest domestic gas producer.
As part of the partnership, Santos holds the exclusive naming rights of RugbyRoos, a program designed to provide a safe and fun introduction into rugby union in WA.
The Santos RugbyRoos program gives boys and girls the opportunity to learn crucial life skills through participation in the beloved game of rugby.
As a major partner, Santos will be growing the game at a school, club and professional level across the state.
Santos Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Kevin Gallagher said Santos had long been a supporter of grassroots rugby teams and competitions across Australia.
“Rugby and sport, in general, brings communities together, promotes healthy living and reduces social isolation in rural and remote areas, especially during COVID-19,” Mr Gallagher said.
“Santos is one of Australia’s most iconic companies and we’re delighted to be partnering with this Australian pioneer,” David Pitts, Head of Commercial Operations said.
“As a club, we share their ambition to build a better future through innovation and leadership. We also share a passion for grassroots rugby development, which is why this is such an exciting partnership for us.”
