The Sydney Roosters rugby squad have today unveiled City Index as a new Platinum Partner for both the Club’s NRL and NRLW programs.
Owned by US brokerage outfit StoneX (NASDAQ:SNEX) via its 2020 acquisition of Gain Capital, City Index has signed a three-year partnership and will feature on the lower back of the Roosters NRL jersey and on the sternum of the NRLW jersey.
This is the second rugby related partnership for City Index, after they became the men and women’s Jersey kit lead sponsors for the Saracens in January.
Welcoming the partnership, Roosters COO Jarrod Johnstone said:
“Our Platinum Partners are all industry leaders in their own right and we are delighted to welcome City Index to our portfolio for both the Roosters’ NRL and NRLW programs for the next three years.
“In forming this partnership with City Index, this completes the opportunity to appear on the Roosters NRL jersey in 2022, with the corporate value of the jersey at its highest in the Club’s 114-year history.
“City Index have also identified the rapid growth of the NRLW competition, and as a founding team in the competition, we are excited to welcome them to our program. The City Index logo will prominently feature on the sternum of the Sydney Roosters NRLW jersey for the next three years, commencing at the start of the 2022 season.”
In launching the new partnership, City Index Head of Australia, Tom Brown said:
“We are excited to be partnering with one of the oldest and most successful clubs in Australia.
“The Roosters consistently demonstrate leadership, professionalism, innovation and a passion for success, many of the beliefs and values that drive us, City Index, as a company.
“It’s a great time to be a part of the club and an exciting time for our business as we continue to grow.
“We would also like to wish the Sydney Roosters all the best for the forthcoming season.”
City Index will feature on the NRL training apparel and playing jerseys with immediate effect, and will first feature on the NRLW training apparel and playing jerseys for the 2022 NRLW season.
