Port Adelaide Football Club has formalised a landmark sponsorship agreement with PwC at Adelaide Oval over the weekend.
The significant long-term sponsorship agreement makes PwC one of Port Adelaide’s major sponsors and ties the two organisations together for an extended period.
“Port Adelaide Football Club is proud to be sponsored by this significant global brand,” Port Adelaide Chairman, David Koch, said.
“It is a great endorsement for our club because PwC has historically only sponsored big global sporting brands and events such as the America’s Cup, PGA and Irish Rugby.
“PwC is a big deal.
“They are rated as one of the top 50 brands worldwide, part of a network of firms in 158 countries with more than 250,000 people, who deliver services to more than 5,000 clients.
“This sponsorship will assist Port Adelaide on the field, but will also help improve our practices off-field.
“In short, PwC’s sponsorship will help Port Adelaide better serve our 60,000 members, which is our core business.
PwC Adelaide’s Managing Partner, Jamie Briggs, said: “PwC works with businesses, Government and the community to help Australia continue to thrive and grow.”
“PwC and the Port Adelaide Football Club are philosophically aligned – both are innovative businesses, driving commercial activity in key growth markets, such as China.”
Mr Briggs is extensively connected amongst the senior executive and Cabinets of both state and federal governments and was a Senior Advisor to the then Prime Minister John Howard from 2004-2007
“Together, PwC and Port Adelaide Football Club can open doors and drive results to solve important problems and provide confidence to businesses and to the community.
“PwC calls this The Together Effect,” Mr Briggs said.
“South Australia is where the action is, in respect to growth opportunities in Australia.
“Together, PwC and Port Adelaide will attract more economic activity to South Australia through innovation, collaboration and excellence.
“PwC is proud to sponsor Port Adelaide, and thanks the entire team at the Club in concluding this important agreement.”
