NZ Rugby has confirmed a six year sponsorship deal with British petrochemical company INEOS.

From next year the company name will appear on the shorts and training jerseys of the All Blacks, Black Ferns, and Sevens teams among others.

Greenpeace has hit out at the move saying NZR shouldn't do business with a company that contributes to global warming.

Mark Robinson the CEO of NZ Rugby says “we’re really comfortable with the due diligence we’ve done and the partnership we’re setting off on with INEOS”.
