Wanderers land new co-major sponsor
Centuria, an ASX–listed investment manager, is now the Co-Major Partner for the A-Leagues Western Sydney Wanderers for the 2018/19 season.
Specialising in listed and unlisted property funds and tax-effective investment funds, Centuria will feature on the front of the Wanderers Hyundai A-League home jersey, sleeve of the Wanderers Westfield W-League jersey and back-of-shirt for the Wanderers Foxtel Y-League and Academy jerseys for the 2018/19 season.
Wanderers CEO, John Tsatsimas, said the partnership was a milestone for the club with Centuria adding significantly to the Wanderers corporate family.
“Centuria is a fantastic partner and one that adds significant weight to our corporate family.”
“Their accomplishments speak volumes for their success as a business and their values in social responsibility parallel our own,” he said.
“Centuria has committed to not only supporting this club in a corporate capacity but are also dedicated to aligning with a number of joint corporate social responsibility initiatives, continuing their on-going role as a socially conscious member of the Western Sydney community.”
Centuria believes that it is increasingly important for businesses, managers, shareholders, investors and employees to be aware that economic growth is linked to social and environmental well-being.
Centuria Capital Group Chairman, Garry Charny, said the partnership stretching across the Wanderers women and youth programmes was an important element to the partnership.
“Western Sydney is one of the region’s fastest growing precincts and as a group we have a corporate philosophy of supporting our local communities,” Charny said.
“Centuria’s core criteria are championing youth development, encouraging youth in sport and supporting gender diversity and equality in all areas.
“The Wanderers youth and women’s programmes are second to none and deserved of Centuria’s participation.
“We are particularly proud to support the Wanderers Westfield W-League team.”
