Sponsorship

“Dedication and commitment are what transform dreams into reality.” Unknown

Millions of athletes and fans around the world dedicate their time to participate in, attend or watch sporting events. We’re proud to play a role in turning their dreams into reality.

Overview

Through sponsorships we connect with our stakeholders – whether it’s building the brand, creating relevance in a specific market segment, or creating a platform to build relationships. When selecting sponsorship opportunities, we make sure we never compromise on our values of caring, making a difference and working together. While our corporate responsibility programmes focus on education and developing our industry, our sponsorships focus mainly on sport – we’re inspired by these athletes and their commitment to greatness. We also believe in giving back to our communities, and our sponsorships incorporate initiatives to help solve some of the important problems our country faces, in the community in which the event takes place.
