40-year partnership extended to support women’s team
St.George Bank has extended their major partnership to the Dragons’ inaugural NRL Women’s Premiership team.
St.George Bank currently has one of the longest standing partnerships in Australian sporting history and their move to support the women’s team will be for the next two seasons.
The two iconic brands have a rich heritage across Southern Sydney and the Illawarra, known for being committed to grassroots footy and providing support to local communities.
General Manager for St.George Banking Group Cathy Yuncken said the partnership with the Dragons was forged 40 years ago to support the local community and embed St.George Bank brand into the heart of the Dragons’ region.
“We are two organisations who believe in championing grassroots sports, diversity and equality and we look forward to our support of the Women’s Premiership achieving that,” Yuncken said.
“The Women’s Premiership team is dedicated, passionate and super-talented. This team and the NRL Women’s Premiership will inspire many young women and girls and assist in driving health, wellbeing, leadership and self-esteem for young women across our community.”
Dragons Chief Operating Officer Michael McDonald said the club was delighted to see St.George Bank extend their long-term partnership by becoming a foundation partner of the Dragons’ Women’s Premiership team.
“We are very proud of our history and partnership with St.George Bank over the past 40 years and are delighted that they, like us, see great value in the opportunities that the women’s game presents,” McDonald said.
“We know they are keen to work with us on building the profile of our female players and showcasing the strength of our existing women’s pathways. We are very appreciative of their support for our inaugural NRL Women’s Premiership squad.”
