    FORCE, CLOUGH ENGINEER PROUD WA PARTNERSHIP

    WESTERN FORCE MEDIA RELEASE
    Tuesday, 18 February 2014


    The Western Force will proudly feature another Western Australian business on its playing jersey, with leading engineering and project services contractor, Clough, on board as the collar partner for the 2014 season.

    Clough, established in Perth in 1919, services the energy & chemical and mining & mineral markets in Australia, Papua New Guinea and Asia.

    Clough will appear on the Western Force jersey for the first time when the club opens its Asteron Life Super Rugby campaign against the NSW Waratahs in Sydney this Sunday (23 February).

    RugbyWA CEO Mark Sinderberry welcomed the partnership with Clough saying it was pleasing to align with another Western Australian company.

    “We’re very proud to wear the name of another quality Western Australian business on our jersey in addition to the 15 companies who will be adorning the front of our playing jerseys in 2014,” he said.

    “As a proud Western Australian club, this continues our renewed focus and commitment to our state, following on from the fact that in 2014 we have more locally grown Perth players in our squad than ever before and have an active presence in the local Western Australian community.

    “We are proud to partner with Clough, who shares our drive to grow rugby from grassroots through to the Western Force. Their support is integral in helping our club reach our goals and vision of success, and we look forward to working with them to achieve their business objectives.”

    Clough CEO, Kevin Gallagher, said his organisation was excited about the partnership.

    “Clough’s sponsorship of the Western Force brings together two strong Western Australian organisations that are united in the pursuit of excellence,” he said.

    “We are delighted to extend our strong community program through a partnership that targets grassroots through to elite level rugby. We look forward to developing a strong partnership with the Western Force, as they lay the foundations for future success.”

    Welcome on board, great to have another WA company being the Force behind the Force.

    Fantastic news in what has been a tough financial start to sponsorships by the sounds of it.

    Thank you Clough Engineering much appreciated.

    It also sounds like they have sold off the 15 starting jerseys. If so, at 50 grand a piece that's about 750,000 (assuming that everyone paid the full 50). That's not bad in the current climate where naming rights sponsors are only about 1 million a year. Sell on a couple of the reserve jerseys and we would be coming close.

    This is great news. It would be exciting if the Force could secure another local naming sponsor for the 2015 season and beyond.

    Yes, yes....a legal and financially stable local sponsor this time.

    Probably got on board due to all the South Africans we have recruited... they were getting bought out by a South African company weren't they? Great recruitment strategy Foles

    Well it's a start, I suppose. I hope they paid a premium for the skipper.

    It is great to see west australian companies supporting the force like this. I hope some of the other Richie rich's follow twiggy's lead. BGC, westrac, Roy hill, Doric group, monodelphous, ausdrill, skippers, barminco, wyllie group, ahg,navitas, worleyparsons, coogee chemicals et al.

    Was more talking about the people behind some of these companies I.e peter meurs although I see now that he is with FMG so all good.
