Hertz Car Hire has yet again taken up the Lions’ mantle by sponsoring the Johannesburg rugby team with two stylish KIA Ceratos in 2013.  With an exciting year ahead jam-packed with fixtures from the new Lions Challenge tournament and the Super Rugby promotion/relegation series, the team is sure to give the competition the “goose step” with the renowned Hertz brand behind them.

As of this month, the Golden Lions Rugby Union will have access to two KIA Ceratos, courtesy of Hertz, which will be driven by the dependable Lions prop, CJ van der Linde and coach Mac Hendricks.  While CEO, Manie Booysen will enjoy the 2013 season behind the wheel of the versatile KIA Sportage.

Ruben Moggee, current Acting CEO of the Golden Lions Rugby Union commented: “The Lions are extremely pleased and grateful for the renewal of Hertz’s sponsorship during what promises to be an eventful 2013.  And this sentiment is carried over as Hertz will also be supporting our new initiative which promotes the development of our junior players.  We are thrilled that we have been given the opportunity to continue a prosperous relationship between Hertz and the Lions.”

Now charging down on the 2013 Lions Challenge fixtures which start as of the 19th of January 2013 with the first game against Russia in Ellis Park, the Lions are ready to play advantage in the branded Hertz Ceratos.
