The Raiders have announced they’re going to be sponsored by the massive Chinese globocorp Huawei.
Canberra Raiders CEO Don Furner said the club is excited about the new partnership with Huawei and the players were looking forward to running out in the new jerseys displaying the Huawei logo on Monday night, when they take on the Cowboys at Canberra Stadium.
“The Canberra Raiders are extremely proud to enter into this partnership with such a large and successful company like Huawei. Mr Furner said. “Huawei is a world leader of information and communications technology and to have them associated with the Raiders is a massive boost for the club and our members.
Huawei was recently banned from participating the the National Broadband Network amidst security fears and the company’s entanglement with the Chinese army.
It is believed they’re launching a PR offensive in Canberra to win hearts and minds, of which the Raiders’ sponsorship is part.
