Businesses and supporters get behind Wales as player sponsors
Nearly 40 businesses and supporters are backing Wales as player sponsors at Rugby League World Cup 2017.
Sponsorship packages went on sale a month ago and businesses and supporters from across Wales and the United Kingdom have been quick to support Wales Rugby League.
As part of the packages, sponsors received two tickets to the celebration dinner, will receive a replica shirt and will be recognised on social media for their support.
National team media manager Ryan Gould said: "The amount of businesses and supporters that have come forward and sponsored is brilliant.
"Some of the sponsors have connections with the players and some are fans of Wales and rugby league in general.
"The sponsorships will help both the team and the players themselves at the World Cup.
"The majority of the sponsors attended the celebration dinner and everybody had a great time.
"It's fantastic to have so many people supporting Wales Rugby League and we look forward to working with them ahead of and during the World Cup."
