Following the development, Workplace Law has been named the associate partner of the Melbourne-based football club for the 2023-24 season.
🤝 We're excited to join forces with @WorkplaceLaw who come on board as our newest Associate Partner!— Melbourne City FC (@MelbourneCity) October 12, 2023
Through this deal, the logo of the company will be cemented at the back side of the training jerseys of the team, all over the season.
Shane Koelmeyer, Workplace Law Director and CEO, said, “We believe the recent Women’s World Cup is a call to action for those of us who love football to do whatever we can to create an ongoing atmosphere of positivity around this beautiful game. We should be focused on all that is wonderful about football and make sure it attains its rightful place in the Australian sports landscape.”
Brad Rowse, CEO, Melbourne City FC, said, “We’re delighted to have Workplace Law partner with the Club and our A-League Women’s team ahead of the 2023/24 season. Melbourne City has a long-standing history of supporting the Women’s game in Australia as evident by our sustained on-field success at A-Leagues level and no fewer than 10 former City players representing our country for the Matildas at the recent FIFA Women’s World Cup.
He also added, “We’re delighted to have a partner on board who shares our values and dedication towards providing the best platform for our Women’s team. We welcome the team on board, and we look forward to working closely together.”
Before this deal, the unit had added Federation University Australia to its sponsorship portfolio.
