The South Sydney Rabbitohs are proud to introduce the newest partner of the Club, Aqualand, an Australian property developer. Featured on the front of the NRL home jersey and the lower back of the NRL away jersey for at least the next three seasons, Aqualand are looking forward to working towards a partnership with the Rabbitohs based on community - something that the Club prioritises as one of the key foundations of The Rabbitoh Way.
If it weren’t for the community, there would be no South Sydney, and now with a newly forged partnership with Aqualand for at least the next three years, there is a chance for both Club and partner to achieve their goals in tandem with one another.
Aqualand themselves have a community-based orientation; already with 23 sites across the city of Sydney, and alongside the Club, want to foster a relationship with both parties in support of the local community.
In particular, Aqualand have already highlighted a desire to not just be a sponsor emblazoned on the famous Cardinal and Myrtle hooped jersey. The property developing giants are looking to forge a partnership with the Club and have identified Souths Cares to help support indigenous Australians and disadvantaged and marginalised youth through education, training, health and employment programs.
Our community is at the heart of everything we do. We continually strive to make the community a better place to live through our connections with partners, our Souths Cares programs and through our interaction with members of the community.
Rabbitohs CEO Blake Solly said he was looking forward to the Club working alongside Aqualand in order to get the best results for both parties but most importantly, the communities involved.
"The more we spoke with Aqualand, the more both organisations realised that our visions and goals aligned, based around our communities," said Mr Blake Solly.
"Our community is at the heart of everything we do. We continually strive to make the community a better place to live through our connections with partners, our Souths Cares programs and through our interaction with members of the community.
"Aqualand also wants to improve the lives of those in the communities in which they develop, and across their entire industry.
"They undertake long-term projects with clear benefits for the communities in which they are built, which is the same vision both our Football Club and Souths Cares have when undertaking our community-based programs.
"This is why we felt such a strong association with Aqualand and we could not be prouder to welcome them to our family, along with other major partners Alcatel, PlayUp and Zoom Communications, and our entire partnership network.”
Appropriately, the NRL home jersey will be featured for the first time this weekend at The John Sutton Testimonial Match at the Metricon High Performance Centre at Redfern Oval, which currently acts as a central hub for the South Sydney community.
