The South Sydney Rabbitohs are proud to announce that our High Performance Centre & Official Home Builder partner Metricon Homes will be continuing their partnership for the 2020 season.
The Metricon partnership is now in it’s third year– growing from a corporate partner to now obtaining the naming rights to the Metricon High Performance Centre, previously known as Redfern Oval.
Rabbitohs CEO Blake Solly is excited to see Metricon extend its relationship with the Rabbitohs.
“The South Sydney Rabbitohs are proud to welcome back Metricon Homes into the Rabbitohs family and continue the great working partnership we have enjoyed over the past 2 years” Mr Solly said.
"Metricon have become an essential part of the Rabbitohs community with their presence at every home game in 2019, providing entertaining activities for Members and fans to participate in as they enter the gates”
"Through the Metricon High Performance Centre, they have also developed a connection with all of our teams – from the NRL squad through our women’s and pathways teams, then into our junior representative teams and clubs.”
“The Metricon High Performance Centre at Redfern Oval is the home to all of these teams and their players. On behalf of the Club, we encourage all of our Members and supporters who are thinking of building their own home to connect with Metricon and support a wonderful company, with great values, that proudly supports their Club and its players."
Metricon NSW General Manager, Mr Luke Fryer, said “Our partnership is underpinned by Metricon’s ethos of ‘Love Where You Live’ and an on-going commitment to meaningful community involvement. Both organisations support families and local communities Australia-wide - many who have a keen interest in sport and football. We know how sport can contribute to a sense of belonging, community and family and love that together we can help foster that joy.
‘Metricon is genuine in our commitment to partner with a range of sporting clubs and organisations from local grass-roots clubs through to elite level sponsorships across a variety of football codes. We have the AFL Metricon Stadium sponsorship with the Gold Coast SUNS, we are the principal partner of Melbourne Victory Football Club and through this partnership with the South Sydney Rabbitohs, we have a diverse football presence across Australia
Metricon Homes has also come on board as the Match Day Sponsor for the Rabbitohs Round 1 game versus the Cronulla Sharks, which is part of the NRL wide Bush Fire Relief round.
"We value the opportunity to be a part of the Bush Fire Relief round, it is a natural extension for our initial relief efforts of a lump-sum donation of $250,000 and uncapped employee donation dollar matching. We will be activating at the match and will be doing something very special on game day, that we are very honoured to be able to participate in.
