THE story between the Cronulla Sharks and Denver Broncos has generated global appeal.

Mystery still surrounds who was responsible for a message of support that emerged from an American football game match for the Sharks earlier this week.

A message stating “Up, Up Cronulla – Best wishes to the Cronulla Sharks” flashed up on the scoreboard at a home game for the Denver Broncos NFL club at Mile High Stadium, US.

On social media, The Leader asked readers to help find out who requested the message of support for the Sharks.

The response has come from far and wide, including from Colorado, US.

Lakewood,  Denver Colorado resident Ben Reisinger said he took a photo of the scoreboard, which later grabbed attention after the Cronulla Sharks promoted it on Twitter.

Originally from Lakewood, Reisinger said he returned home last October after spending three years living in Australia on a working visa.

Reisinger said he became familiar with the Cronulla Sharks during his time in Australia.

“I posted the picture on my friend Ryan's Facebook page as he is a huge Sharks fan,” he said.

“He sent the picture to the Sharks which is how it ended up on their Twitter Page.”

However, the mystery still remains – who requested the message of support for the 2016 NRL champions?

One reader suggested it could have been well-known Sutherland Shire triathlete Paul Ambrose.

Another reader believed the person responsible may actually work for the Sharks club.
