The partnership will see Fiji Airways feature on the front of the Crusaders’ away jerseys from 2020.
Crusaders CEO Colin Mansbridge said this will be the first time the Crusaders has had a separate front-of-jersey sponsor for their home and away jerseys, and they are thrilled the team’s away jerseys will feature the Fiji Airways brand from 2020.
Mansbridge added the Crusaders largest fan base outside of New Zealand is in Fiji, which is unsurprising given the overwhelming support they have from local fans whenever the team has played a Super Rugby match in Suva.
He says they look forward to engaging more Fijian fans through this partnership, and strengthening their connection with Fiji Airways, as they’re both such an important part of our club.
Fiji Airways Managing Director & CEO said André Viljoen, they’re proud to be part of the Crusaders family since 2017 and to be taking our partnership to the next level as front-of-jersey sponsor for the team’s 2020 away games.
