The governing body for netball in Australia, Netball Australia has renewed its sponsorship deal with one of Australia’s leading energy companies, Origin Energy.
Origin has renewed its commitment as the team’s official naming rights partner ahead of the Origin Australian Diamonds‘ first appearance in 2024 in the Netball Nations Cup on Sunday. For the fifth year now, the logo of the brand will be featured on all playing and training jerseys.
Additionally, the energy company will continue to be a major sponsor of the Suncorp Super Netball League, extending its reach into the highest echelons of domestic play.
Origin and Netball Australia first partnered in 2020 to advance the most popular team sport for Australian women and girls from grassroots to the highest level.
Netball Australia Interim CEO Stacey West, commented, “Together with Origin, we will continue to grow the sport of netball in Australia from the grassroots through to our Origin Australian Diamonds. The Origin Australian Diamonds have won every major tournament they’ve played in the past two-and-a-half years, including being crowned Commonwealth Games gold medallists and World Champions and with the ongoing support of Origin will continue to make Australia proud.’’
Origin Australian Diamonds defender, Joanna Weston, said, “It’s really exciting to have Origin re-sign as our naming rights partner. We’ve been incredibly lucky to have had Origin’s support for the past four years and we wouldn’t be on the court without them.”
Origin’s General Manager of Marketing, Catherine Anderson, said, “We’re delighted to be extending our partnership with Netball Australia and continuing our support of the world’s best netball team, the Origin Australian Diamonds, and the world’s premier domestic competition. Over the past four years, we’ve built a strong relationship with Netball Australia, supporting one of Australia’s most-loved sports at all levels.
“The Origin Australian Diamonds have enjoyed significant success on the court through this period, as well as being excellent role models within the community. We’re excited to continue to help grow netball in Australia and work together to create good change in sport.”
The top-seeded Origin Australian Diamonds will play their opening match of the Netball Nations Cup this Sunday in London against New Zealand. Subsequently, they will then play England and, for the first time ever, Uganda.
