In support of one of the nation’s fastest growing participation sports and in its commitment to empowering women to become successful leaders, a global re/insurance brokerage has teamed up with the governing body for Australian rugby.
Aon has forged a four-year partnership with the Australian Rugby Union (ARU) in a deal that would make it the body’s official risk partner.
The deal will allow Aon to feature its logo on the back of the playing jerseys of Australia’s World and Olympic Champion Women’s Sevens team starting this weekend at the Sydney 7s.

The agreement also gives the global broker naming rights for the new National Women’s University Sevens Series which will commence in August 2017, as well as for the National Women’s Youth Sevens Championship.
Lambros Lambrou, Aon Risk Solutions Australia CEO, said he is excited to see how the partnership will evolve as the firm and ARU realise their shared vision of building a high performance culture.

“Our sponsorship will also enable us to create social impact through our support for the ARU’s long term strategic vision  ̶  to inspire all Australians to enjoy our great global game. Through this, we are committing to work with the organisation to enhance opportunities for players from grassroots village and club rugby right through to the elite level.”
