The fledgling Western Australian rugby league competition continues to be backed by Cash Converters.
The Western Australian Rugby League is pleased to announce that Cash Converters is continuing their sponsorship commitment to the League for another three years. The partnership is worth $100,000 per year up to and including 2015.
As the Major Sponsor of the West Coast Pirates team which competes in the SG Ball Cup competition, the Premier Under 18s competition in Australia, the ongoing support from Cash Converters ensures the Pirates will continue to provide an elite pathway for young Rugby League players in WA.
Over the past three years, the Cash Converters-backed WA SG Ball program has produced 13 players that have subsequently been recruited into NRL Toyota Cup Under 20s teams.
Cash Converters Managing Director Peter Cumins said, “Cash Converters is pleased to announce the extension of the company’s sponsorship of the West Coast Pirates for a further three years. Cash Converters is committed to providing the best Juniors in Western Australia with the opportunity to play on the national stage against the elite players in the country.
“Junior Rugby League in Western Australia is growing rapidly and participation in the SG Ball competition gives our young people a pathway to play in the NRL. As a West Australian company, we are proud to help them achieve their dreams.”
WARL CEO John Sackson said that the ongoing commitment by Cash Converters will ensure the code’s continuing prosperity in the WA market.
“It is an exciting time for Rugby League in Australia and the NRL has clearly identified WA as a top priority market for development and growth. A Perth-based NRL franchise remains a major objective for the WARL and we are extremely grateful to Peter Cumins and Cash Converters for believing in our vision and supporting our endeavours. They are a proud part of our history and will be a much valued part of our future.”
