THE newest members of the Hyundai A-League, Macarthur FC have announced they have already secured a remarkable $15 million in partnership income over the next three years.
Leading local home builder, Wisdom Homes, will be Macarthur FC’s principal front-of-shirt partner, with their subsidiary Hoot Homes’ logo appearing on the team’s shorts.
Campbelltown City Council are the club’s principal community partner, with local shopping giant Macarthur Square teaming up with the club as partners for the schools and wellbeing programs.
Wisdom Homes Managing Director, Domenic Vitalone, said the club was a natural fit for his company who have their roots firmly planted in the region.
“We’re a local business; we were founded in the Camden area; we operate here and build many of our houses in the area. We see this partnership with Macarthur FC as a great way of giving something back to the community that has been so supportive of us,” he said.
“Being a south-west resident, I feel a sense of local pride that we haven’t previously been able to express in a sporting context. To finally have a team to call our own is very exciting.”
Macarthur Square Centre Manager, Trevor Hill, echoed Mr Vitalone’s sentiments.
“Macarthur Square is proud to be partnering with Macarthur FC – a team of our very own, playing right in the heart of our community. We see sponsoring the club’s schools’ program as an opportunity to give back to the people of the Macarthur-Campbelltown region, which has been our home for over 40 years,” he said.
