Lusanda Dumke Inks Two Year Deal with Adidas

Springbok Women’s flanker, Lusanda Dumke, joins an elite group of athletes, inking a two-year sponsorship deal with sportswear brand, Adidas.

This sponsorship bodes well for women’s sport as more sports brands engage with women athletes.

Speaking to gsport, Dumke explains what this sponsorship means for her and the impact it has on women’s sport.

“My sponsorship with Adidas came as a shock and surprise. I was overwhelmed. It was always something I wanted, but never thought it could happen.

“Adidas is the biggest sports brand out there and to become their official Ambassador is a true honour. I could not contain my excitement when I signed the two-year sponsorship deal with Adidas. I look forward to forming a beautiful relationship with them and to carry their brand with pride,” she added.

“The sponsorship is very important to me as an individual and also very important for women’s rugby in South Africa. Sponsorships are very rare for women in sport and it is my fondest wish that more women in sport are sponsored and become Brand Ambassadors. It is also shows that corporates are recognising women’s rugby and are willing to back us as their ambassadors.

“My aim is to be an inspiring Ambassador for Adidas over the next two years and to hopefully see more females in rugby get sponsored,” she concluded.
