Yakult Australia and Melbourne Rebels Super Rugby team have renewed our partnership ahead of the 2018 Super Rugby season.

Yakult will continue to be the Rebel’s official daily probiotic drink, after a successful 2017 season. With our Yakult logo featuring again on the four goal posts as well as half time activities of home games for the Rebels and other exciting opportunities.

“Yakult have been a valued long-term partner of the Rebels and I am really excited that we are bringing this partnership to life through mutual commercial, community and potential rugby opportunities,” Rebels CEO Mr Baden Stephenson said.

“We hope this partnership extends beyond the norm for commercial sports sponsorship, we’ve teamed up with Yakult with the aim to deliver a valuable partnership for both organisations on and off the rugby field.”

Yakult Australia’s Managing Director Mr. Kenji Ono said: “We are delighted to renew our partnership with the Melbourne Rebels. The Rebels are dedicated to their community and to excellence, values that are shared by Yakult, so we are excited to work together to deliver success for both organisations.”

We wish the Melbourne Rebels luck in their 2018 season.
