The partnership marks the second time the winery has joined forces with the Rabbitohs.

It will see Tyrrell’s wine range have exclusive pourage across all Rabbitohs events and functions for the next two years, and give it rights as a naming sponsor to the Tyrrell's Wines Legends Lounge at Rabbitohs home games.

According to Tyrrell’s Wines managing director Bruce Tyrrell AM, Tyrrell's first became associated with both Souths Seniors and Souths Juniors in 1983 when Steve Rogers, the great rugby league player, was working with the winery and managing its club business.

"The fit of foundation members of both the rugby league and the wine industry in NSW is perfect. Both of us are steeped in history but have eyes to the future and to improving our own and our sectors' performance,” he said.

"I look forward to Souths winning premiership number 21 and some more 'Best Wine of Show' trophies for Tyrrell's,” he added.

Rabbitohs CEO Shane Richardson said he is very happy to be welcoming Tyrrell's Wines back to the South Sydney family.

"Tyrrell's Wines is widely regarded as one of the success stories in the Australian wine industry, and we're delighted to be partnering with them once again," Shane said.

"We're looking forward to renewing our association with the Tyrrell family and bringing the best-in-class wines to our corporate rooms and functions over the next two years,” he added.
