It's official! BMW are now the vehicle sponsor to the reigning IRB Rugby world champs, the South African Springboks!
The deal, concluded in May 2011, will see Springbok players sporting BMW cars whilst playing Test matches on South African soil. In return the players will don shorts bearing the BMW logo when on the field, starting with their Tri-nations clash with Australia in Syndey next month.
It's great to see one of the motoring giants getting behind the national rugby side as they prepare for their World Cup defense in New Zealand later this year.
