Dreamtime Training’s logo will appear in a prime position on the front of the Toyota Cowboys’ jerseys after the Townsville-based company signed on as a major sponsor until the end of the 2016 NRL season.
The special edition 2015 NRL home jersey, which also features North Queensland’s 20th anniversary logo, was launched today at Dreamtime’s Kirwan office by NRL squad member Ray Thompson who will be the training company’s player ambassador.
As part of the two-year agreement, Dreamtime will become the Cowboys’ preferred supplier of tertiary training and be a community partner in the annual Obe Geia Challenge junior rugby league carnival on Palm Island.
“It’s an exciting time for us as a North Queensland business to be able to forge a partnership with our region’s team in the NRL,” Dreamtime Training director Gaven Ferguson said.
“We’re a community driven company just like the Cowboys are a community driven club.
“There’s great synergy there between what we do and what the Cowboys look to achieve with their off-field programs.
“A core focus for Dreamtime Training is to support ongoing education and employment for remote indigenous communities – areas which have a tremendous love of rugby league and the Cowboys especially.”
Toyota Cowboys general manager – commercial Steve Mitchell said Dreamtime Training’s decision to become a major sponsor was another strong show of local support for the North Queensland club.
“It’s always especially pleasing and rewarding to have a North Queensland company like Dreamtime become a member of our family of partners,” Mr Mitchell said.
“This is great news for us on top of what has been another successful year on and off the field.
“We’re look forward to developing a long and successful association with Dreamtime Training and helping them achieve their goals throughout North Queensland and the rest of their target areas.”
