After a hugely successful 2013 British & Irish Lions Tour to Australia and 12 years with the HSBC Waratahs, HSBC announced in December 2013 the next stage of our commitment to rugby around the globe through our partnership with the Australian Rugby Union as the Official Banking Partner of Australia's national team, the Wallabies, from 2014 to 2016.

Through this partnership HSBC will invest energy and commitment to helping the Wallabies achieve their own goals and the association will help better enable us to bring our valued customers, employees and fans closer to the game through a range of programs and activities. These rugby sponsorships help to build the Group's business and support our vision and values. They enable our customers to experience our brand philosophy and connect with our business through shared passions.

In 2014, Australia played host to 7 International Test Matches.
