Netball Australia secures three-year Rebel partnership extension

Netball Australia has extended its partnership with Rebel (Super Retail Group Limited (ASX:SUL)) until 2021 – increasing its commitment across a range of programs and events to become an Associate Partner of Netball Australia.

The sport and leisure goods retailer first came on board with Netball Australia in 2015 and the latest agreement affirms the organisations long-term association with the sport.

Rebel Managing Director, Erica Berchtold said they were committed to supporting netballers from grassroots to elite competition.

“Rebel is the leader of sporting apparel, footwear and equipment in Australia, and a long-standing and proud supporter of women in sport, working actively to lift the profile of female players and promote grassroots participation,” Berchtold said.

“We are really excited about extending our partnership with Netball Australia as part of our commitment to growing participation and supporting women in sport. Netball Australia has been at the forefront of women’s sport and we are delighted to be right there by their side in the next phase of the journey.

“We want to continue to inspire the next generation of sports stars, and show younger women that netball and sport in general is not just a hobby, but a viable career path. From grassroots participation to elite athletes, we are committed to making a positive contribution to supporting our inspiring women in sport.”

Netball Australia CEO, Marne Fechner said Rebel is an industry leader and its commitment to netball is helping drive the sport forward in a competitive market.

“Rebel have been a great supporter of netball since 2015 and the expansion of the partnership will continue to extend Netball’s footprint.

“As the Official Sports Apparel Retail Supply Partner, Rebel will support a cross section of the sport, from NetSetGO inspiring 5-10-year-olds to start their journey in netball, through to the Samsung Diamonds.

“It’s great to be working alongside a brand that shares our passion for women’s sport,” Fechner said.
