Johannesburg - The Golden Lions Rugby Union (GLRU) has welcomed ASUS South Africa as its new technical sponsor.

The one-year sponsorship deal includes a range of devices such as the much spoken about ASUS ZenBook, Transformer and ZenPad product series.

“ASUS South Africa is proud to be the product sponsor to the Lions Rugby Group. We look forward to this partnership as it is our first entry into the South African rugby environment. We want to wish the Lions all the best for this coming season,” said Yolandi Venter, Marketing Manager of ASUS South Africa.

ASUS is a worldwide top-three consumer notebook vendor and maker of the world’s best-selling and most award-winning motherboards. A leading enterprise in the new digital era, ASUS designs and manufactures products that perfectly meet the needs of today’s digital home and office, with a broad portfolio that includes motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, displays, desktop and all-in-one PCs, notebooks, netbooks, servers, multimedia devices, wireless solutions, networking devices, tablets, smartphones and their Eee PC which was internationally credited with revolutionizing the PC industry.

“We want to welcome ASUS on board as the official technical supplier of the Lions Rugby Company. As we embark on our Super Rugby campaign we know that these ASUS products will be vital in terms of game and technical analysis while it will obviously also keep some of us entertained and busy. Creative partnerships like this strengthen the Golden Lions’ reputation and it adds convenience to our daily lives. We all know the demands for access to information on-the-go, whether it's analysing game footage or directions to a favourite restaurant, and with ASUS’ help this is now at our fingertips,” concluded Rudolf Straeuli, CEO of the Golden Lions Rugby Union.
