Yellow announces sponsorship of the North Tamworth Bears Junior Rugby League Club for 2021
In its ongoing support of local sporting organisations, Yellow (formerly Yellow Pages) will be one of the major sponsors of the North Tamworth Bears Junior Rugby League Club for 2021.
The Bears are a Tamworth Club with a strong history of fielding teams from Under 6 through to Under 16s
and strong links and established pathways with senior club The North Tamworth Bears providing opportunities for players to move into senior Rugby League.
John Allan, the CEO of Sensis (which owns Yellow), met many of the players and club president Nicholas Hodgson at a function at the Bears home ground today.
“Yellow is proud to be partnering with the Bears. Junior sport is the backbone of regional communities, and after such a tough 2020 season, I am sure the Bears players are keen to get back on the field in 2021,” he said.
“We love the fact that the club is so family orientated with an ethos all about participation and fair play. Rugby League is a great pathway to build strong community links through healthy competition and above all through children having fun.
“Along with providing funds direct to the Club, Yellow will also be providing additional support t
o conduct a training session with NRL players at the beginning of the 2021 season and to help fund the club’s new jerseys for the 2021 season.
Mr Hodgson said the Club is excited to have Yellow commit to the Club for the 2021 season.
“We realise Yellow has connected people to businesses for many years in and around Tamworth, and this new partnership will help us continue to connect with families and the community to allow growth in participation.
“After a challenging year, with a restricted season, the support of Yellow with funds to go towards next season’s uniforms and to assist the club in continuing to make it affordable for families and players to be involved. The Club is also excited to have a special pre-season training session with an NRL talent involved for the juniors to look up to.
