BHP Becomes Principal Partner Of Perth Glory For Upcoming A-League Season

Perth Glory has managed to secure a major partnership agreement with one of the world’s leading resources companies, BHP, for the 2019/20 A-Leauge season.

The company’s logo will feature on the front of Perth Glory’s Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League shirts and all training apparel this season and club Chief Executive Officer, Tony Pignata, believes that the partnership is a hugely significant one.

“BHP is a global powerhouse in the resources field and its Western Australian operations play a key role in driving the State and National economy,” he said.

“We are therefore extremely proud to have partnered with them and look forward to their logo being front and centre on our Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League shirts as both teams look to build upon last season’s success in their respective competitions.”

BHP WA Iron Ore Asset President, Edgar Basto, meanwhile, feels that the two organisations share a number of common values.

“BHP values the contribution Perth Glory makes to the people of WA,” he said.

“Our partnership is underpinned by a mutual commitment to achieve outstanding results and greater inclusion and diversity and we believe this approach has a positive impact on our organisations and the broader community.

“Our Company and culture are shaped by the many people from diverse cultures and backgrounds around the globe who call Western Australia home, so we think it makes sense to sponsor one of our State’s most successful and diverse sporting teams.

“Throughout the years, Perth Glory FC has #SetTheBar for football in Australia and we wish both their Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League teams every success in the 2019/20 season.”

Glory will sport the BHP logo for the first time in Sunday’s season-opener against Brisbane Roar at HBF Park.
