Melbourne Victory is proud to announce it has extended its relationship with AGL Energy Limited (AGL) for a further two seasons.
AGL became a Major Partner of Melbourne Victory during its Championship-winning 2014/15 Hyundai A-League season. This season, AGL becomes the club’s naming rights partner of Australia’s largest sporting networking group, Victory in Business, and the club’s Chairman’s Function at every home match day.
AGL General Manager of Marketing and Retail Customers, Mark Brownfield, said AGL valued the strong business relationships that had developed through its partnership with Melbourne Victory as well as the opportunity to connect with a passionate and loyal fan base.
“We are pleased to be continuing our partnership with Melbourne Victory and expanding our involvement to be the naming rights sponsor of one of Australia’s leading business networking groups, Victory in Business,” Brownfield said.
“We have enjoyed being part of the Victory family and have had some terrific results in the first year of our partnership. We are looking forward to working with Victory members and our fellow Victory corporate partners over the next two years to help build on the success of the club and the Victory in Business network.”
Melbourne Victory CEO Ian Robson said extending the partnership with AGL for a further two seasons is testimony to the strength of the relationship that exists.
“AGL has been a valued partner of the club throughout its first season and we look forward to expanding their involvement with us over the course of the next two seasons,” Robson said.
