ABSA drop the Sharks


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

ABSA have summarily decided not to renew their sponsorship of the Sharks stadium.

The Sharks’ press release on the matter follows:

“The Sharks have announced that ABSA have terminated an 11 year association with them, having decided to drop the current sponsorship as stadium naming rights-holder which they have held since 2000.

The news comes ahead of Saturday’s final when The Sharks host Western Province at 5.30pm. From Kings Park to The Stadium Kings Park and finally to The Absa Stadium Durban, The Shark Tank is world-renowned for its unique brand of pre and post match entertainment – SharkErtainment – and the home of The Sharks.

The termination of the sponsorship means that The Sharks will now be in the hunt to find a new sponsor ahead of next year’s Super Rugby Tournament.”

Let’s hope that whichever sponsor comes on board now, we can go back to calling the place “Kings Park” and not have to endure the ever-changing whims of a sponsor when it comes to naming the home of Sharks rugby. Cheers, ABSA.

  • Hopefully we won’t go the same route as the other unions – “Vodacom” Sharks.

    Nothing can be as bad the the Auto and General Lions playing at Coca Cola Park.

  • Awesome! I never liked the name Absa Stadium. I would love if it was kept as Kings Park but realise the sharks need the money so lets hope whoever sponsors it has their name in it and then kings park, like Securicor Loftus. I think thats the best we can hope for

  • Yeah – Absa/Maria Ramos/Trevor Manual/Ruling Polictial Party/White Elephant of a soccer stadium a stones throw away/Sharks wont move….ABSA flexing muscle / Sharks flexed bigger muscles. Only logical reason why a sponsor would abandon a hugely successfull product.

  • @Just a Fan (Comment 13) : this crossed my mind as well.

    just wondering whether sharks has the bigger muscle. after all i do not think the maintenance of the stadium can be covered from selling tickets – even when it is selling and we all know that Durban crowd is lacking a bit in this department. I do not think that teh Sharks are poor union but stil they will probably need to find somebody.

    I am sure they have quite a lengthy contract with the Lions and unlikely that would invest in the very same thing (though mind you Vodacom has like 3 rugby teams).

    Perhaps we should ask King to sponsor then it will be Kings Park.

  • I think we all have been a little bit dramatic about this. ABSA had a sponsor deal which they did not renew, not a big deal. The Sharks will probably find a new sponsor. There was not such a big issue when the Sharks changed kit sponsors from Canterbury to Reebok was there?

  • @war1 (Comment 73) : Nothing to be dramatic about I agree. For the past 11 years Absa has been a good source of money for The Sharks and for that good on them.

    Whatever the politics or just plain bottom line, it doesn’t matter. Sharks will survive and Absa will continue being a bank like the rest.

    New major sponsor is needed, Sharks are a massive brand and also are the only one not to give naming rights away ever, so they have one heck of a leveraging stick.

    Backed up by SuperSport who own a decent portion, The Sharks are not going anywhere and neither is their money.

    As for the timing, well ABSA perhaps has issues, does it matter?

    maybe it should be Budget Free State Cheetahs… Where we pay our players less, so we can keep our ticket prices affordable. :roll:
