UNSW and Sydney FC have agreed a major partnership to span the Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League for three years.

The UNSW logo will be associated with the Sky Blues from the 2016/17 season until the 2018/19 season, and will feature on the back of Sydney FC’s Hyundai A-League playing shorts and the back of the Sky Blues’ Westfield W-League playing jerseys.

UNSW will receive a range of benefits from the partnership, including matchday branding at Allianz Stadium for every home Hyundai A-League game and matchday branding at televised Westfield W-League matches.

This partnership follows UNSW’s association with the Sky Blues as a Major Partner for their 2016 AFC Champions League campaign.

Sydney FC Chief Executive Officer Tony Pignata said he was pleased to have UNSW expand its support by joining the Sky Blues’ Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League corporate family.

“We thoroughly enjoyed UNSW’s support during our AFC Champions League campaign and it’s exciting to see our partnership continue in an increased capacity for three years,” he said.

“To have one of the leading universities in the country align with one of Australia’s leading football clubs is pleasing and I hope we can both revel in success in the years to come.”

UNSW President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Ian Jacobs said the University was excited to be extending its association with Sydney FC.

“I’m delighted that UNSW is continuing its relationship with Sydney FC, a club that represents a high-quality competitive sport that so many of our students, both local and international, love.

“Strengthening our social engagement and community links is a key part of the UNSW 2025 Strategy and we are particularly pleased that this sponsorship extends to both the men’s and women’s teams at Sydney FC as well as the broader club community.”
