JSE-listed MICROmega, a holding company with controlling interests in a number of operating subsidiaries – including technology and occupational health and safety – has announced its first foray into sports sponsorship. The company is now an official sponsor of The Sharks rugby team.

The relationship got off to a good start when The Sharks beat the Bulls 31-16 in their first match of the Vodacom Super Rugby season, played at GrowthPoint KINGS PARK, at the weekend.

Greg Morris, CEO of MICROmega, said: “We are excited to be a sponsor of The Sharks and even more so as our relationship started off with a resounding win. We couldn’t have hoped for a better start.”

The Sharks CE0, John Smit added: “We are delighted to welcome MICROmega to The Sharks family and we thank them for their investment in our brand. The Sharks look forward to a mutual partnership that is based on success and growth.”

Morris said MICROmega is to be regarded as the official occupational health and safety sponsor– a role that will be fulfilled by one of the group’s subsidiaries, NOSA. NOSA is the leading global supplier of occupational risk management services and solutions.
