Following this new one-year extension, the brand will continue to serve as the club’s official security partner.
Wilson Security is committed to safeguarding its customers’ future. As one of Australia’s premier security firms, the brand offers security solutions to clients of all sizes and industries. The brand’s staff of over 6,500 security professionals collaborates directly with its clients to provide security solutions that prioritise the protection of their operations and assets at all times.
Wilson Security, which has been an integral part of the Hurricanes partnership family for over seven years and has its logo embossed on both the Hurricanes’ BBL and Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) team headwear, will also continue as the Hurricanes’ official headwear partner.
As part of the agreement, Wilson Security’s logo will be displayed on player headwear (playing hats, training caps, and helmets) in addition to signage around the Hurricanes’ team dugouts on all Hurricanes match days.
Wilson Security, Chief Operating Officer, Nick Schijf, said, “In partnership with the Hurricanes throughout the last seven-seasons, we have worked together towards a joint vision, engaging with communities, staff, members and fans alike, something we are looking forward to continuing over the 2023-24 season.”
General Manager of the Hobart Hurricanes, Scott Barnes, said, “Wilson Security has been a part of the Hurricanes family for a long time now, and so we’re thrilled to have this relationship continue. Wilson Security extending their deal, shows the trust they have in what our team is doing to grow and solidify the Hurricanes’ brand both on and off the field.”
In addition to the collaboration renewal, Wilson Security will reveal a new CCTV system at Blundstone Arena, which will be used for the first time this weekend during the Australian Football League (AFL) match between North Melbourne and Port Adelaide.
Wilson Security introduced 86 new Avigilon Analytics CCTV cameras in Blundstone Arena in critical points. This new CCTV system has greatly improved the safety and security of Blundstone Arena, while also setting a new standard for safety and security in sporting venues, and Cricket Tasmania can be assured that they are delivering a safe and secure environment.
Scott Woodham, General Manager of Venue Operations at Blundstone Arena, said, “It’s fantastic to have a partner in Wilson Security that is willing to contribute in such a practical way, which not only benefits our business, but also our members and patrons. The safety and security of players, staff, and spectators are of utmost importance at Blundstone Arena, so we’re thrilled this new system, is ready for use for the first AFL game we are hosting this season.”
