NTRU is proud to announce Skyring as Rugby Park’s naming rights sponsor for the upcoming golden decade of Australian rugby.
Skyring last week penned a ten year deal, commencing with a three year block with options to extend for a further three, then four years at Marrara.
From the 2023/24 season onwards, NT Rugby’s spiritual home will be known as Skyring Rugby Park.
NT Rugby CEO Nathan McDonald said the partnership with Skyring was a “huge vote of confidence” in Territory rugby ahead of Australia’s golden decade.
“We’re excited to have Skyring on board as our stadium naming rights partner, especially given the spotlight that’s building on Australian rugby heading into a World Cup campaign,” McDonald said.
“With two home world cups also on the horizon and a 2025 Lions Tour around the corner, there’s no better time to get on board the Aussie rugby bandwagon.
“Skyring will also play a key role in supporting and developing our junior representative programs so we can’t wait to see Skyring Rugby Park up in lights for our next season.”
Skyring CEO David Mardell said the partnership an exciting one for both parties.
“We’ve always had an affiliation with sporting teams – we’ve had previous relations with the Wheelchair Rugby League Wheelaroos and helped support and raise awareness for their sport,” Mardell said.
“Darwin has been kind to us and we want to repay that by raising awareness and supporting not just top level rugby in the NT, but also grassroots and junior representative programs.
“This 10-year deal includes the naming rights but also a whole bunch of other initiative for juniors along with our Mozzies and Goannas representative teams."
