Diamonds, Hancock Prospecting Enter Partnership
Australia’s national netball team, the Diamonds, have secured Hancock Prospecting as a principal partner until the end of 2025.
The Hancock Prospecting logo will feature on the Diamonds’ kit for the duration of the deal, which includes the 2023 World Cup in Cape Town.
Funding and support for training camps and competitions will also be provided by Hancock.
Discussing the agreement, Netball Australia CEO, Kelly Ryan, said: “This is a major investment for our sport, and is a huge contribution towards the ongoing success of the Diamonds.”
“Hancock Prospecting is investing directly into the Diamonds high performance program, allowing Netball Australia to maintain its position as the cornerstone of women’s sport in Australia,” she said.
Netball Australia will hope the deal eases some of the financial pressure the sport has incurred during the past two years, with reported losses of $4.4 million for 2021.
