New Balance Team Sport Sign Apparel Deal With ACPE

T
he New Balance and School Locker partnership has continued with a string of recent partnership announcements, headlined by a three-year, exclusive apparel partnership with the Australian College of Physical Education (ACPE).

The deal follows similar deals with a number of sporting clubs, schools and universities including St Peters Lutheran College, St Augustine’s College, Redlands Rugby, Surfers Rugby, and the International Rugby Academy Australia.

ACPE dean, Debbie Le Roux, said the partnership will help take the educational facility’s sporting industry professionals to the next level.

“We are very excited to announce this partnership with New Balance,” Le Roux said.

“ACPE and New Balance together combine over 200 years of experience in delivering excellence in both sport and education.

“There is no doubt that the entire ACPE community will welcome this announcement.

“New Balance will take both our on-field and off-field ranges to the next level.

“Our students, alumni and staff are always proud to showcase the ACPE brand and now with the New Balance brand alongside ours, this feeling will only grow.

“The ACPE community will receive unparalleled levels of customer service and value through New Balance, with deliveries to their front door and access to a wide range of online discounts.

“There are a number of initiatives planned for the near future with New Balance, though for now, we are looking forward to getting the ranges confirmed to share to the entire ACPE community in early 2021,” she said.

The School Locker general manager of commercial, Tyron Brant, said the New Balance Team Sport project has found partners aligned perfectly with its vision.

“Partnerships in sport and education are the key pillars for building the New Balance team sport range in Australia,” Brant said.

“ACPE is exactly who we were looking to partner with, and we look forward to working with the team,” he said.
