One of the most iconic sponsorships in Manly Warringah Sea Eagles history is back in the spotlight this week with the Club announcing the return of Wormald as a corporate partner.
Wormald enjoyed six years as major sponsor of the Sea Eagles from 1983 to 1988, a period that saw Manly play in two grand finals, including the famous 1987 victory over Canberra Raiders as the last grand final played at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Today’s announcement of Wormald and the Sea Eagles coming back together coincides nicely with this Saturday’s annual Golden Eagles Round home game at Lottoland against the Newcastle Knights.
Golden Eagles Chairman and Sea Eagles 2008 Premiership winner Mark Bryant praised Wormald’s renewed support of the Club.
"There are so many great memories that involve those iconic old jerseys of the 80s with Wormald across the front,'' Bryant said.
“It’s fitting that Wormald are getting back on board this week and we will be wearing the Wormald logo proudly on the front of our Golden Eagles jackets this weekend."
Current Head Coach Des Hasler was just one of many Manly legends who ran around during the 80s in the heavy cotton jerseys with Wormald across the front. Hasler is also pleased to see the iconic sponsorship back together.
“Wormald was synonymous with Manly throughout a key period of success for the Club,” Hasler said.
"It’s fantastic to have them back on board and we look forward to enjoying more success together moving forward."
Wormald is a leading provider of fire protection solutions in Australia and has been helping to protect people and property for over 125 years.
Wormald’s expertise spans the design, manufacture, installation and service of fire safety products and equipment backed up with a comprehensive range of fire services from engineering advice to fire safety training.
“There’s obviously some great history there between Wormald and the Sea Eagles. We are delighted to be realigning our support and kicking it all off again with our involvement in the annual Golden Eagles Round this weekend,” said Wormald CEO, Mr Andrew Lee.
