Rabbitohs Announce Two-year Corporate Partnership Agreements with Simply Energy and HOSTPLUS
The South Sydney Rabbitohs are pleased to welcome two new brands to the Rabbitohs Partnership Family, with HOSTPLUS and Simply Energy joining the Club for the 2015 and 2016 seasons.
HOSTPLUS has signed on as the Club’s Official Head Coach Partner, with Simply Energy joining the Club as its Official Energy Partner.
Rabbitohs CEO John Lee is excited about the new partnerships in having two high quality organisations involved with the club.
“We have always sought to associate ourselves with best-in-class organisations at the Rabbitohs, and the combination of HOSTPLUS and Simply Energy joining our Family certainly fits that bill,” Mr Lee said.
“Most pleasing is that both HOSTPLUS and Simply Energy have holistically bought into our new Major Partnership strategy here at the Rabbitohs whereby their exposure will increase significantly due to the Club only having two brands displayed on our playing jersey, those being Fujitsu General and Crown Resorts.
“During our discussions with both HOSTPLUS and Simply Energy, we realised we have many of the same goals as businesses, striving for success and to be the best at what we do.
“Both organisations have made it very clear to us that they see the Rabbitohs as a key pillar for their growth in the NSW market, something we are confident we can deliver.”
HOSTPLUS – Official Head Coach Partnership
HOSTPLUS is one of Australia’s largest Industry SuperFunds serving the hospitality, tourism, recreation and sport industries.
David Elia, HOSTPLUS CEO said: “Major sporting partnerships are not just about sport, they bring together the hospitality and tourism industries and play an important role in creating economic growth within the industries that we serve.”
“Sydney is an important market for our industries and we are proud to partner with such a strong sporting brand in the South Sydney Rabbitohs.”
“HOSTPLUS was recently successful in winning a NSW Government bid to deliver Sydney’s new convention, exhibition and entertainment precinct (SICEEP) in Darling Harbour, showcasing the commitment of the Australian superannuation industry towards nation building infrastructure and securing retirement savings for members.”
Along with the Head Coaches Partnership, HOSTPLUS will bring to life their Health Wealth program with the Rabbitohs. The Health Wealth program highlights HOSTPLUS’ commitment to work with their members on creating a healthy financial future. It was built from the belief that a person’s health is their greatest wealth of all, and will provide HOSTPLUS members with a fantastic opportunity to work with the Rabbitohs High Performance Staff and Coaching Team.

Simply Energy CEO, Glen Thomson said: “We are really excited to be partnering with the South Sydney Rabbitohs. It’s an iconic club and we admire their ability to innovate and succeed in one of the toughest sporting competitions in the world.
