Although no gear has been released yet for 2019, it can't be far away at all and a new development has been made in terms of sponsorship. Fujitsu and Crown Resorts are sadly no longer with us as sponsors but it appears we have a new sponsor that has stepped up to the main sponsor level to take their place. Normally, on Souths members emails, they have the main sponsors at the bottom of the email. So for 2018, Fujitsu and Crown Resorts would appear there. However, these disappeared a few weeks ago which confirms our partnership with those sponsors has unfortunately come to an end. But in the members email the other day, I noticed that Alcatel appeared at the bottom which suggested to me that they are now our major sponsor. This was pretty much confirmed today as the club website was updated and Alcatel now appears in the main sponsor area where Fujitsu and Crown used to be. Despite us having a boxy sponsor for years, I've always thought it still looked nice because they were never some weird colour. However, with Alcatel being the new main sponsor, that might finally pave the way for some nice sponsor intergration because it will fit in between the hoops on our jerseys.
