Johannesburg - The South African Rugby Union (SARU) has welcomed CIB Insurance Administrators (CIB) into their sponsorship family after CIB secured a new three-year partnership deal as an associate sponsor for Vodacom Super Rugby.

CIB’s associate sponsorship will run from 2012 to 2014.

“We are excited to add CIB to our sponsorship family and look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship with a partner that is enthusiastic about rugby and the sustainability of the game,” said Andy Marinos, General Manager: Commercial and Marketing of SARU.
