    Sponsor vows to stick by besieged Manly

    Major sponsor Lottoland have vowed to support Manly despite the NRL club being caught up in a salary cap scandal.

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    Manly have received a major boost with their biggest sponsor vowing to stick by them throughout the salary cap scandal.

    Betting company Lottoland have promised to honour their seven-figure sponsorship deal struck earlier this year for the naming rights of Brookvale Oval.

    It eases fears the threat of a hefty NRL fine will have a long and lasting affect on the Sea Eagles' marketability and profitability.

    The Sea Eagles were this week issued with a breach notice by the NRL over alleged salary cap cheating over the last five years.

    Lottoland director Luke Brill promised to stand by the Sea Eagles and reiterated his company's support for the club.

    "We're are fully committed as a premier partner of the club and the direction moving forward," Brill said.

    "We are looking forward to supporting the Sea Eagles again at Lottoland in season 2018."

    The Sea Eagles in February agreed to rename their home ground in a deal which was touted as key in the club's long-running push to upgrade the facility.

    Sea Eagles chairman Lyall Gorman has promised to fight the NRL's allegations and respond to the governing body's breach notice.

    The club is looking at a severe financial penalty while two officials are facing deregistration.

    It's been reported former Sea Eagles CEO and now Sydney Roosters boss Joe Kelly is one of the officials facing being banned from the game.

    Unlike Parramatta following their salary cap scandal last year, the club is not being threatened with the loss of competition points.

    It's alleged the club promised players third party agreements in contravention of NRL salary cap rules.

    The NRL is proposing to add the value of those promises onto next year's salary cap, affecting the Sea Eagles' ability to chase a replacement for five-eighth Blake Green.
