North Melbourne strike association with Ponting Wines

To commemorate the new partnership, Ponting Wines is providing North Melbourne fans with exclusive free delivery across Australia.

The Australian Football League (AFL) unit, North Melbourne have announced a sponsorship agreement with an award-winning Australian winemaker, Ponting Wines.

As per the deal, the brand has been named the team’s official wine partner.

Ricky Ponting, the legendary cricketer and loyal North Melbourne fan, and the Ponting Wines team will collaborate with the team in advance of the forthcoming AFL and Australian Football League Women (AFLW) seasons.

Ponting Wines, expertly made by award-winning Australian winemaker Ben Riggs, will be featured at several of the club’s most memorable events, such as the North Melbourne Drinkwise Grand Final Breakfast, the Syd Barker Medal, and the AFLW Club Champion award nights.

Ponting Wines, Co-founder, Ricky Ponting, said, “North Melbourne has been a huge part of my life. The club means so much to me and also to my family. Growing up I never thought that one day I would be sponsoring the Roos but here we are. Our wines are crafted by Ben Riggs, a masterful winemaker, one of the best in the country. Together, we source premium fruit from my home state of Tasmania and Ben’s home state of South Australia. Our dedication to quality has delivered significant success for our wines both here and abroad, winning over 30 gold medals since our business commenced in 2020.

Events like the North Melbourne Grand Final Breakfast are so iconic to the Australian sporting landscape, and we’re honoured to serve our wines at the breakfast and other events throughout the year.”

North Melbourne CEO, Jennifer Watt, said, “Ricky Ponting is one of our most iconic supporters and passionate about the club. It’s great to have him involved at North Melbourne now as an official club partner and to welcome a quality brand like Ponting Wines to the club. Ponting Wines will no doubt elevate our events with its great range of wines, and we’re looking forward to working with the team at Ponting Wines to bring this partnership to life.”

To commemorate the new partnership, Ponting Wines is also providing North Melbourne supporters with exclusive free delivery throughout Australia on all orders.
