Ready to Cheer the Raiders and Brumbies for another year!
Winter is coming—and we can’t wait!
As sponsors of the Canberra Raiders and Brumbies Rugby again in 2017, we’re hoping there’s going to be a lot to cheer about throughout the season ahead.
To kick things off for the year (or really, to end last year), our staff were given 2017 Raiders memberships as their Christmas gift for all their hard work by Managing Director, Greg Johnston. Our brokers bleed green (though we’ve thankfully never witnessed this), so make sure you look out for them at your next Raiders games.
You may have seen our logo across the Raiders Auckland 9 team jerseys. We were thrilled with our second year as jersey sponsors for the event, seeing the boys get an early taste of what’s ahead in 2017. They may not have won, but we figure they were just testing some new tactics without revealing too much.
And, it’s only going to get bigger and better—for the teams and their members.
How does $500,000 sound?
This year, we are part of an incredible competition, offering the most prophetic Raiders members the opportunity to win a whopping $500,000, should they be able to accurately predict the Raiders performance this year.
Austbrokers Canberra General Manager David Marjoribanks said the competition was a wonderful reward for Raiders members, and he encouraged more people to sign on for 2017.
“We’ve witnessed this year the rise of the Raiders, so Austbrokers Canberra have decided to make next season even more exciting by putting up a $500,000 prize for Raiders members,” Mr Marjoribanks said.
“Imagine being in the running to win $500,000 in the last round of the season as the Raiders get set for another finals campaign. It would be a huge occasion, and we’re hoping this competition can help the Raiders break another membership record in 2017.”
Rather than be green with envy, we suggest you get your 2017 membership and Bleed Green instead! To find out more: http://www.austbrokerscanberra.com.au/announcements/500-000-reasons-to-become-a-2017-raiders-member
We are also proud to be sponsoring the annual Forever Green Raiders history celebration on April 1, with a further 10 chances to win $50,000 as part of the spin the wheel competition throughout the season.
Supporting the Canberra Community
Of course, sponsoring the Raiders is a lot of fun, but our commitment to helping the Canberra community is one we take very seriously. That’s why this year we’ve decided to do our bit off the field, by showing support for The Ricky Stuart Foundation, which aims to raise awareness for those affected by Autism.
You can find out more about the incredible work the foundation does, here: https://www.rickystuart.org
Brumbies Ready to Bolt
Brumbies Rugby is also getting our support as we once again look forward to our Austbrokers Canberra Directors Dinners. These pre-game dinners provide Canberra’s business community with the chance to get together at the game, while being entertained by some of its current and former stars.
As it is our second year hosting the Directors Dinners, we look forward to building on our inaugural season’s performance with an even better line-up of special guests.
If you would like to join us, make sure you ask your broker how to get an invite. We’d love to see you and your team there.
We’re proud also to be helping both teams with their insurance off the field, so on the field they can give it their all. Here’s hoping it’s quite the year for both Brumbies and Raiders fans alike.
