GoDaddy.com International Senior Vice President James Carroll said: “Rugby League is a part of life here in the UK, a fun part of the culture; its fans are passionate and I can think of no better way to raise awareness with potential GoDaddy customers than to be involved with Rugby League World Cup 2013.

“We want people throughout Europe to know the GoDaddy name and to understand that we are here to help small businesses leverage the power of the Internet. 

“We are here to give small businesses, the ‘little guy,’ the kind of internet advantages typically reserved for the ‘big guys.’ That’s what we are all about and we believe we can help many more people looking to use the Internet to grow their businesses right here in Europe.”

Rugby League World Cup 2013 General Manager Sally Bolton said: “We’re extremely excited to welcome GoDaddy.com into our portfolio of sponsors ahead of RLWC2013.

“The company’s commitment to a high-quality and comprehensive service is what makes them a global leader in their industry, and it’s fantastic to be aligned so closely with them.

“We look forward to a prosperous partnership with GoDaddy.com and also toward making more partnership announcements before the Opening Ceremony.”
