What do Rowing Australia and Manchester United have in common? Both have inked sponsorship deals with global risk adviser Aon. Rowing Australia’s four-year partnership, which was announced in late February, sees Aon serving as the exclusive risk and insurance partner of the national governing body and naming rights sponsor for the Sydney International Rowing Regatta. In 2013, the company entered into an eight-year deal with Manchester United that included renaming their training facility as the Aon Training Complex. Aon also sponsors the club’s training uniforms.
