The New Zealand division of global office equipment firm Ricoh has become a major partner of Wellington Phoenix, reports, www.sportspromedia.com/. Ahead of the Phoenix's first game of the new Hyundai A-League season against Perth Glory on Sunday, Ricoh becomes one of five main sponsors of the club and will have branding on the front of Phoenix's shorts this season.
Ricoh has been what the club calls a 'background supporter' of the Phoenix for some time but has now decided to increase its backing.
"The Phoenix has gone from strength to strength," said Ricoh's Wellington sales manager, Clark McIntosh.
"They've had some great signings on-pitch for this season and we'd like to think that our involvement will enhance the team both on and off the pitch."
