How Much Rugby Cash Does Ford Have?

I stumbled across this article from the Scottish RFU Web site this evening – Ford has renewed their sponsorship commitment as the “official vehicle supplier” of Scottish Rugby in a six-figure deal.

Ford has also been the sponsor of many of the New Zealand Super 12 teams throughout the years – as those of us who proudly wear one (or many) Super 12 jerseys can attest, with a big Ford symbol emblazoned across the front.

So a few questions immediately come to mind:

1. Exactly how much cash does Ford have for sponsorships, and where does this money come from?

2. Why can’t the USA Eagles get their hands on some of this Ford sponsorship cash (supporting the home team, ya know 🙂 )

And finally….

3. Would Ford be interested in sponsoring an up-and-coming Rugby news blog/video site (coming soon!) by any chance? (come on Scott Monty, you know y’all want to… 🙂 ) (that’s me, always working the social media angles)
