Bafana sponsorship extended

2012-07-12 13:20

Bafana Bafana and their brewery sponsor have announced the renewal of their partnership until 2017.

The initial contract, between the SA Football Association (Safa) and SA Breweries, under the Castle Lager branding, expired four months ago, but a new deal was signed to extend the period of sponsorship.

“We were always going to renew our ties with Safa, and we’re glad that the sponsorship has continued for another five years,” said SA Breweries head of sponsorship Rob Fleming.

The value of the contract, however, is significantly lower at R100 million, compared with the previous amount of R250 million.
