Central Coast Bears secure another key sponsor
Would-be National Rugby League franchise the Central Coast Bears have secured another major sponsor, guaranteeing the team a further six-figure investment if it secures a place in Australia's NRL.
The Bears have already agreed a US$2.6 million three-year sponsorship deal with Mortgage House as they seek to raise a total of almost US$11 million as part of their quest to join the NRL. A number of other businesses have also backed the team financially.
Now Fone Zone have pledged another six-figure sum, thought to be around US$450,000. The team is seeking to join the NRL from 2013. "We have a population of over one million people, the third largest junior league in NSW, a purpose-built stadium in Gosford and the iconic North Sydney Oval," said Bears chief executive Greg Florimo last year. "The Bears are ready to return at the highest level."blog comments powered by Disqus
