The Western Force is delighted to announce that AFGRI Equipment Australia has signed a long-term partnership agreement as the official regional rugby partner of the Western Force.
The partnership endeavours to grow rugby through regional engagement and community support. To realise this ambition, the Western Force will take to the road and visit regional areas across the state, fostering the passion for the game in players, new and old.
AFGRI has expanded to 19 branches across WA, servicing from the Geraldton region to Esperance and Albany, focused on delivering customers with premium equipment tailored to their needs.
AFGRI General Manager of Sales and Marketing, Jacques Coetzee, is thrilled to partner with the Force and support rugby in WA.
