Hyundai A-League Champions Sydney FC have signed Kennards Hire as the club’s latest Premium Partner, which will see the leading family-owned equipment hire group become the Sky Blues back of shirt sponsor for the next three seasons.
The move sees the Sky Blues enter into a relationship with one of the most trusted and recognisable brands in the equipment hire industry and join with a company that has had a long history of supporting grass roots and local club football. This partnership will take that backing to the next level.
Kennards Hire’s logo will be visible on the back of the home, away and alternate playing kits for Head Coach Graham Arnold’s charges as they prepare to defend their Hyundai A-League Premiership and Championship double in season 2017/18.
Sydney FC Chairman, Scott Barlow, said he is very excited to be working with Kennard’s Hire as a new Premium Partner and believes the mutual relationship will be of great benefit to both parties.
“I am delighted to welcome Kennards Hire to the Sydney FC Corporate Family for the next three years,” he said.
“They are an innovative and ambitious transnational family-owned business, who align well with the values of Sydney FC and we look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
CEO, Angus Kennard said Kennards Hire was delighted to be collaborating with the team recognised as Australia’s premier football club.
“As two iconic brands that share very similar values and strive towards excellence in everything we do, we are thrilled about this relationship.
“The entire Kennards Hire branch network is behind the Sky Blues and wish the team great success in the coming season,” added Angus.
Sydney FC would also like to recognise the contribution made by previous back of shirt partner StarTrack, with Chairman Scott Barlow thanking the company for their support.
“We have had an excellent relationship with StarTrack, who have supported us in our Hyundai A-League and AFC Champions League campaigns over the last three seasons, and we look forward to forging a similar rapport with Kennards Hire,” he said.
The Kennards Hire and Sydney FC partnership kicks off tonight when Sydney FC play English Premier League legends Arsenal FC in the friendly match at ANZ Stadium.
