SANYO renew sponsorship with Panthers

Panthers today welcomed the ground breaking news that SANYO Oceania would continue to be the club’s Major Sponsor for another 2 years extending the deal to 12 years in total.

SANYO were already the longest serving major sponsor of any NRL team prior to the announcement today.

In making the announcement to fellow supporters, sponsors and community groups Panthers Chairman Barry Walsh said SANYO are true partners in every sense of the word and we are proud to have such a highly regarded business as a partner.

“Sanyo have partnered us in many positive activities within our community and on the field. One of the obvious highlights of our partnership was our premiership win in 2003,” Mr Walsh said.

“SANYO is one of the world's leading manufacturers of electronic products, it is also a responsible and highly committed global citizen

“Throughout all our highs and lows SANYO have stood steadfastly beside us as a club and our community. SANYO were instrumental in the success of the Pink Panther campaign to support Breast Cancer. And this is only one of numerous social welfare activities it undertakes each year in support of the community.

“It’s a great show of support in the strength of the Panther’s brand,” NRL CEO David Gallop said.

“For a major corporation like for SANYO to commit over such a long period in what are challenging economic times is a tribute to the professionalism of the club and of the tangible value Rugby League delivers to companies in the marketplace.

“Penrith is a club that has always been very involved within the community. Through programs such as Panthers on the Prowl, the recent Pink Panthers initiative and through its huge junior league it has a focus on providing opportunities for people both on and off the field.”
