We hope to use the sponsorship of a team of young men to raise awareness of the protective value that life insurance can bring to young people right across Australia.
Melbourne, Victoria (PRWEB) November 24, 2011
The deal helps cement the GIANTS’ off-field success ahead of tonight’s 2011 NAB AFL Draft, when the GIANTS will secure some of the best young talent in the country with 11of the first 14 selections.
Lifebroker, Australia's leading specialist life insurance broker, joins Skoda as a co-major partner of the GIANTS for the next three years.
The partnership agreement includes rights to a jumper logo and ground signage among other publicity opportunities.
The GIANTS will enter the AFL competition in 2012 as the AFL’s 18th and newest club. It will be coached by four time premiership coach Kevin Sheedy and feature players such as Tom Scully, Phil Davis, Callan Ward, Luke Power and Chad Cornes.
The GIANTS will play home matches at Skoda Stadium, Blacktown International SportsPark, Manuka Oval in Canberra and ANZ Stadium in 2012.
Lifebroker CEO, Chris Eade, said he was proud to partner the Giants and hoped the association would help bring success to the club in the years to come.
“Both our organisations want to grow their profile with a national audience and both are newcomers to their respective games,” Mr Eade said.
“Lifebroker has quickly become one of Australia’s biggest brokers of life insurance, an achievement we hope we can also help bring to the Giants.”
Mr Eade said he also planned to use the partnership to help drive awareness of the need for life insurance among Australians.
“Just as football clubs need to be prepared to manage eventualities like injuries to players, so do all Australians need to be prepared to manage disruptions to their life plans from injuries and illness through life insurance.
“We hope to use the sponsorship of a team of young men to raise awareness of the protective value that life insurance can bring to young people right across Australia.”
GIANTS CEO David Matthews thanked Lifebroker for its support and said the club looked forward to a successful partnership over the next three years.
“We are delighted to partner with Lifebroker and see this as a great opportunity for the GIANTS and Lifebroker to build their brand awareness through Australia’s most popular sporting competition,” Mr Matthews said.
