Northern NSW Football and Newcastle Permanent are delighted to announce the extension of their partnership into a 15th year.
Newcastle Permanent, the official financial institution of Northern NSW Football, will proudly continue as Northern NSW Football’s major partner of community football, a role it has held since 2008.
The partnership helps local families lead healthy, happy and active lives, provides valuable equipment and signage to NNSWF community football clubs and helps stabilise player registration fees for families.
Northern NSW Football CEO David Eland said Newcastle Permanent were a valued, long term major partner.
“We are obviously thrilled that Newcastle Permanent will continue as our major partner of community football,” Eland said.
“We understand that many families have experienced difficulties over the last couple of years due to the pandemic and natural disasters and we are committed to ensuring that the region’s largest sport remains affordable, fun and safe.
“Newcastle Permanent’s support continues to ensure that our game remains accessible and young players start the season with a ball at their feet.”
Newcastle Permanent’s Chief Customer Experience Officer Paul Juergens said Australia’s favourite game was part of winter weekends for families right across northern NSW and the financial services organisation was delighted to continue its support of the sport.
“Football is such a great game and we’re excited to play a part in making it more accessible to families across northern NSW. Be that through fee support, new equipment or in recognising the thousands of volunteers who generously give their time to their local clubs every weekend,” Juergens said.
“Since 2008, Newcastle Permanent has provided more than 110,000 free footballs to entry level players, with a further 10,000 balls ready to go out this season. We can’t wait to see the kids hit the pitch with them this year.”
Newcastle Permanent will also hold naming rights to senior grand finals across Northern NSW Football’s seven Member Zones, NNSWF’s primary school gala days and NNSWF’s Junior Development League as part of the partnership.
