I occasionally ponder the status of some of our sponsors/partners (contract end dates, etc). Figured I would start a thread to track that. Three recent partnerships listed on the Storm website:
- Fuso and Comwire
- Brick Lane Brewing Co

Melbourne Storm are delighted to announce that Fuso have extended their partnership with the Club while also welcoming Comwire to the Storm family.
Fuso has signed on for a further four years and will continue on as the official truck partner of Melbourne Storm.
After first partnering with the Club in 2015, the automotive manufacturer will upgrade their partnership to now appear on the upper back of the Melbourne Storm jersey until at least the end of the 2021 season
Fuso Director Justin Whitford said the company was proud to continue their Storm association.
“We are very excited to have extended our partnership with the Melbourne Storm for a further two years.
“The Storm are a special organisation that deliver in every key area of partnership, from on field success through to off field partnership and engagement. We look forward to continuing our commitment.”
Storm fans will also see a different view when the camera pans up to Craig Bellamy’s coaches box this season.
Comwire has partnered with the football department to have their logo emblazoned on the back of the coaches’ laptops for the next three seasons.
The complete IT and communications business prides itself on optimum performance which perfectly aligns with the focus of Craig Bellamy and his team.
“Comwire is very excited to be joining the Melbourne Storm as their Official IT Partner,” the company’s CEO Mark Frahn said.
“We like to partner with likeminded organisations and the professionalism and success of the Melbourne Storm is something we feel will contribute well with the value we can bring to the team as part of this long-term partnership.”
Melbourne Storm CEO Dave Donaghy expressed the Club’s pleasure in having two quality partners sign on in time for the 2018 NRL season.
“We have no doubt the extension of Fuso and the welcoming of Comwire, perfectly aligns with our commitment to building strong and sustainable partnerships.
“For the last three years Fuso has provided Storm with outstanding support and we look forward to continuing to work closely with them for the next four years.
“In the competitive environment of elite sport you are always looking to stay ahead of the pack and evolve. The technology space is no different, making for a great synergy between Storm and new partner Comwire."
