The Sharks today revealed that headline sponsor Mr Price has extended their backing of the team by coming on board as stadium sponsor as well. After being somewhat unexpectedly dumped by ABSA late last year, the shark tank will now officially be known as Mr Price Kings Park.
After a number of years of going under the characterless moniker of “the ABSA Stadium, Durban”, the Sharks’ home ground has now recovered a large part of it’s heritage by going back to the name it held for the better part of a century, Kings Park. The bills must be paid, of course, and Mr Price’s name will always be added to that, but I for one don’t mind one bit. Sponsors come and go, but the budget clothing chain has stuck by the Sharks through and through and proved that their blood is black and white.
So a big thanks to the new (old) sponsor and a hearty well done to all involved in securing this deal. Now let’s go watch some rugby at Mr Price Kings Park!Tweet
