A company like his is a really unusual sponsor, really. It's not as if punters are going to be buying products or services from him.

He is a known philanderer though, so He's probably thrown a few bucks our way and got second major.

Probably paying a sixpence if we're honest.

All the above said, the links to China may have been the key. They love our steel.

Hopefully a decent length deal though. Going through this every two years isn't fun.

Sponsorship isn't always about selling products to consumers.

Woodside don't sponsor Fremantle to sell their fans LNG, they sponsor them to foster goodwill within the government/community and grease the wheels for sanctioning (and government funding / subsidies) for their multi billion dollar projects.. I imagine this sponsorship would have similar intentions.
