AN ABSOLUTE HONOUR

It is my great pleasure to announce a special partnership between New South Wales Rugby League’s City Origin side and Indigenous health and welfare organisation KARI Aboriginal Resources Incorporated.

KARI and the NSWRL have agreed on a special partnership, which gives this special organisation front-of-jersey and naming-rights sponsorship for Brad Fittler’s City Origin team in 2015.

In 2015, the City Origin team will be known as the KARI City Origin team – and the side will play in specially-branded KARI jerseys.

KARI and the NSWRL share a special bond and a rich working history, with both organisations benefitting from a particularly close partnership over recent years. KARI has been instrumental in their support of a number of NSWRL’s Indigenous health, welfare, education and high-performance programs, including generous assistance with under-age representative sides and overseas tours.

KARI and the people who work for the service provide the highest standard of care for Indigenous people in need while ensuring individuals retain their cultural and family identities.

The KARI organisation does outstanding, life-changing work in the community and it is an honour to have their logo on the front of one of our most prized possessions, the City Origin jersey.

Thanks Paul Ralph, KARI CEO, and thanks KARI.
