    Manly have jagged another multinational sponsor after signing air-conditioning company Daikin on a three-year deal worth more than $1 million.

    Sea Eagles boss Dave Perry and coach Geoff Toovey will trumpet the announcement at a press conference in Narrabeen on Wednesday. The Daikin brand will appear above the players' jersey numbers until the end of 2016 as part of the deal.

    The sponsorship is a coup for the Sea Eagles, who became one of the few teams to turn a profit after making last year's grand final.

    "We are really proud to be associated with such a prestigious brand," Perry said. "We have very aligned values in relation to community. We're really looking forward to a three-year partnership and respect their history in producing the world's best air-conditioning technology. It give us another multinational partner along with Kaspersky."

    The news comes as prop Richard Fa'aoso confirmed a neck injury he suffered in last year's finals series is a career-ending one. Fairfax Media revealed last week the Tongan international wouldn't be able to resume his career after receiving the latest news from specialists.

    "It's very disappointing and unfortunate, but I feel blessed to have played with the people I have over so many years," Fa'aoso said. "I'm extremely grateful for the opportunities the game of rugby league has given me."
