    Feeling the Force
    May 2, 2018
    One of the most trusted and reliable brands in the country has joined the Western Australian-led sporting revolution.

    Toyota and the Western Force will team up in the upcoming World Series Rugby season in an automotive and coaches partnership described by Force Commercial Manager Brad Paatsch as an obvious alignment.

    “Toyota is constantly developing new ideas and looking for smarter alternatives. World Series Rugby is bold, fresh and definitely an exciting alternative for sports fans seeking something new,” Mr Paatsch said.

    “Our players, coaches and staff have been working non-stop to ensure the Western Force succeeds, and to know an organisation as iconic and successful as Toyota is supporting us all is a great boost on the eve of our first match.”

    Toyota WA Managing Director Mark Lauren says his team is delighted to join the Force and help WA take on the rugby world.

    “The concept of World Series Rugby was of immediate interest to us and we can’t wait to watch it play out over the next few months,” Mr Lauren said.

    “Toyota WA is a West Australian owned and operated company and partnering with the Western Force and sharing the vision is a good thing for Western Australian and the entire Australian sporting community.”

    An excellent outcome. Congratulations to the negotiators who made this happen.

    Could it be a hint as to who the mystery Japanese team to play the Force will be?

    Today, WA, tomorrow, the World.

    Don't you think the Toyota chicken bears a striking resemblance to Twiggy in his younger days?

    It must be the red hair.

    This is madness. Werent we all lead to beleive that getting sponsorships for a pro rugby side was incredibly tough/ or nigh on impossible? Yet there are a number of incredibly significant global corporations that have come on board to back Forrest's reborn Force.

    Wasn't it Melbourne who have been struggling to get sponsorship as of late? Which is amazing in such a sport obsessed town. Have they even got a full list of sponsors?

    At this rate there wont be any room on the Force jumper for the Force logo.. we can have a jumper graffitied in sponsors or hopefully land a deal like the All Black AIG deal

    More egg on Clyne's face, when will he stop becoming a human punching bag?

    Was it my imagination, or was there a QANTAS logo on the park Friday night?
    Does that mean QANTAS is a sponsor of the Western Force?

    Looks like they are a World Series rugby sponsor. Not just western Force to me. Watch the after gamer presser the card board behind Sampson and Ian had a nice allotment of high profile companies.

    Nope definitely saw it too. No idea what they were sponsoring either? Could it be the Force after all the bad RA publicity?

    Yep exactly its the profile of these company's thats significant. Lots of big players. I'm surprised how quickly they've managed to get them all onboard

    Bit like when the Force first started it was well publicised on the other side of the country that the Force had oversubscribed corporate sponsorship. Looks like Twiggy and Hodgson have tapped in to that.

    possibly being the travel partner, it allows them to get the opposition over relatively cheaply.
