Rugby Union Proud sponsors of the Castrol EDGE Rugby Championship
In 2011, Castrol signed a four-year sponsorship deal as the official Performance Partner of the Wallabies and naming rights sponsor of the Castrol EDGE Rugby Championship.
In a joint statement by Castrol and the ARU, the then ARU Managing Director and CEO, John O’Neill AO, stated “It is an exciting new relationship with obvious synergy. Both ARU and Castrol have been established in their respective international marketplaces for more than a century.
"Those international reputations have been built around success, a focus on high performance, and a desire to be at the forefront of innovation.”
Castrol’s core values include a passion for superior performance supported by an emphasis on analysis and ongoing innovation. As a global leader in providing high quality performance lubricants, we are experts in finding ways to improve performance through analysis, technology and innovation.
Castrol General Manager Brett Davis said “We are very much looking forward to working together and supporting the game through that focus on ‘strength to perform’.
“It is synonymous with what Castrol Edge stands for within our industry. The Wallabies know the importance of mental, physical and emotional strength – strength of character to give you the edge.
“At Castrol we see there is a natural and genuine alignment in what we are both aiming to achieve and deliver.
“The Wallabies also hold a unique position as national sporting icons, capable of drawing in all sports lovers across the country.
“That will never be more evident than this year. It is a massive year for the team and we wish them all the best on the journey ahead. We are proud to say we are behind them this year and beyond”
