Rand Merchant Bank Rowing

RMB is the proud Official Sponsor of the National Rowing Squad, leading up to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. With naming rights to the team, the team will be known as the RMB National Squad. Through our sponsorship we hope to develop and transform the sport to bring back medals for South Africa on the international stage.

RMB’s partnership with RowSA started in 2015 when RMB recognised the many touchpoints between banking and rowing. A fully-fledged TV advertising campaign followed – featuring the rowing champions from the South African and Paralympic rowing squads.

RMB is committed to growing the sport at all levels – from development rowing at school, university and grassroots level, to assisting with equipment, facilities and coaching.

As part of the RMB sponsorship agreement, RMB is also the named sponsor of four regattas across the country: the RMB Universities’ Boat Race; the RMB Buffalo Regatta; the RMB Schools Champs Regatta and the RMB National Senior Champs Regatta.
