We showed you the new Western Force BLK kits for the 2014 Super Rugby season, and also revealed that Force were using a rather novel idea by selling advertising space in front of each of the 23 jerseys, rather than having one major front of the shirt sponsor for all 23 match day players.
The Force now have a completed list of 16 jersey sponsors. All fifteen starting players have different sponsors, while jerseys 16-23 will be sponsored by the WA government.
Navitas, who will be on the front of the hooker’s (2) jersey, will also appear on the back of all squad jerseys. Engineering and project services contractor, Clough will be the collar sponsor on the Force shirts for 2014. The man of the match awards for games at the NIB Stadium will be presented by Haigh & Hastings
