Hyundai A-League Champions Sydney FC and The Star Sydney have signed an agreement for the five-star luxury hotel and entertainment complex to become the Sky Blues new principal partner.
The two-year deal will see The Star Sydney’s logo appear on the front of Sydney FC’s home, away and alternative strips as Graham Arnold’s men look to defend their double Championship and Premiership titles.
The Sky Blues will also bear the name on their Westfield FFA Cup shirts when they take part in their second consecutive FFA Cup Final next month.
Sydney FC Chairman Scott Barlow said: “I am delighted to be announcing this partnership and to be welcoming The Star Sydney into the Sky Blues family for the next two years.
“We are two of Sydney’s most iconic brands coming together. The Star and Sydney FC are companies dedicated to providing premium entertainment to all Sydneysiders.
“We believe it is a great fit and we’re excited by the opportunities it presents.”
The Star Managing Director Greg Hawkins said: “Sydney FC are an iconic Sydney brand and we are thrilled to be supporting the Sky Blues as principal partner.
“This partnership is an extension of our commitment to support the sporting and cultural spirit of Sydney as we continue to grow our position as Sydney’s premier destination for entertainment.”
The Sydney FC and The Star partnership begins immediately with the logo featuring on the club’s shirt in Saturday’s first Sydney Derby of the season against Western Sydney Wanderers.
The game will be broadcast by Fox Sports and for the first time on free to air TV station Network TEN.
