“We have formed a strong partnership with New Era since they joined the club in 2016 and we are thrilled they will now extend that commitment to our Bombers’ esports team,” said chief commercial officer Justin Rodski.

General Manager of New Era Australia Simon Hibbs said, “Esports represents one of the major emerging trends in sport and New Era Australia is very proud to partner with the Bombers esports team and expand our presence into this exciting new competitive sport.”
