Construction Sciences is pleased to announce a partnership with Queensland Wheelchair Rugby League (QWcRL) as naming rights partner for the Queensland Maroons Squad in 2023.
The partnership continues the sponsorship that helped the Queensland Maroons achieve success last year in the inaugural state battle.
In 2022 both Wheelchair Rugby League Australia Limited and the Queensland Rugby League took the momentous step of creating Queensland Wheelchair Rugby League Incorporated, a non-profit association proudly affiliated with the Queensland Rugby League.
The Wheelchair Rugby League State of Origin is scheduled to be held in July 2023 and will see representative players in an epic battle of Australia’s mightiest wheelchair athletes competing for their home state of Queensland or New South Wales in one of the biggest events on the Wheelchair Rugby League calendar.
Queensland Wheelchair Rugby League (QWcRL) Interim Chair David Nugent has welcomed the partnership with Construction Sciences.
“We are so excited that Construction Sciences have decided to renew our partnership for another 12 months, this provides us with an avenue to continue our recent success against New South Wales,” Mr Nugent said.
“Together with the Queensland Rugby League, we will continue to work on growing our participation rates across the state through come’n try’n play events in local communities and schools,” he added.
Construction Sciences Executive Director Gerard Midgley said the premium sponsor partnership enables the continued game development and improvement of resources for Wheelchair Rugby League in Queensland.
“The Queensland and New South Wales rivalry was intense in 2022, and with this new partnership Construction Sciences is excited to inspire more participation in the sport and raise awareness of community issues associated with living with a disability,” Mr Midgley said.
