“The University of Canberra is proud to continue as a major sponsor of the Brumbies,” Professor Deep Sani, Vice-Chancellor & President, University of Canberra said of the extension to the agreement.
“With the team based on the University campus the sponsorship enhances UC’s commitment to the Brumbies and Canberra.”

“We are very happy to have extended our partnership with the University of Canberra continuing the good relations that exist between the organisations,” Brumbies CEO Phil Thomson commented.
“We have a superb training facility here at the University which is the envy of many other sporting teams throughout Australia, so its makes perfect sense for us to foster a positive sporting relationship with the University.
“The partnership also sees us utilise interns from the University who gain first-hand experience of working in an elite sporting environment, with the convenience of the club’s headquarters being located on campus.”
