Bendigo Bank and Adelaide Football Club renew three year partnership
Bendigo Bank and the Adelaide Football Club are proud to announce that Bendigo Bank will continue as a Premier Partner of the Club for an additional three years, taking its commitment to 2019 and a total of six years as the 'Official Bank of the Adelaide Crows'.
Bendigo Bank State Manager SA/NT Joe Formichella said the Bank was thrilled to renew its partnership with the State’s premier football team.
"As a bank, we encourage people to be part of something bigger, and our support of the Adelaide Football Club for another three years means we can keep investing in the state we call home, Mr Formichella said.
"Our partnership means Crows fans will have access to special offers on some of our premium products that suit their needs, and we’re excited to be part of helping fans enjoy their sporting experience.
To celebrate the renewed partnership, 22 young Crows fans will be given the opportunity to be part of the AFL men's team for a day as a mascot for the Crows' Round 1 clash with GWS Giants at Adelaide Oval on Sunday, 26 March.
The mascot opportunity is open to children aged between 6-15 years, with the winners also receiving 2 x tickets to the game so an adult can attend.
"Like the Crows, our Bank has a long and proud history," he said.
"We’ve been part of this state for well over 100 years, and we’re here to support local people, businesses and communities.
"We’re a great match, because the Crows are driven to succeed and so are we, which is why we've returned more than $8 million in banking profits to support South Australian communities – that makes everyone a winner.
"We wish the Crows all the best for the 2017 Premiership Season."
Adelaide Football Club CEO Andrew Fagan said he was delighted that Bendigo Bank would be continuing its partnership with the Club until 2019.
“Bendigo Bank has been an important partner for the Club for the past three years and we’re excited that they have extended their support for a further three years," Fagan said.
"Bendigo Bank has a strong focus on the needs of its customers and the community so the partnership is a great fit with our own Club values.
"What’s more, we’re thrilled that to celebrate the extension they’re offering a fantastic opportunity for young fans to experience running out with our men’s team as the mascot in Round 1.
"I encourage members and fans to get behind the official bank of the Crows."
