Mitsubishi Electric Australia and the Western Sydney Wanderers FC have announced an extension of their partnership right through until the end of the 2018/19 season. This announcement brings the sponsorship to a six year period, with the Wanderers first adding the Mitsubishi Electric brand to its kit in 2013.
Western Sydney Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas said this partnership was great for the region.
“Mitsubishi Electric Australia is passionate about being based in Parramatta and dedicated to creating jobs and opportunities in Western Sydney. That’s why we see this partnership as a perfect fit for our club,” explained Tsatsimas.
“We look forward to continuing the success we have had over the first three seasons with the Mitsubishi Electric diamond displayed proudly on our kit.”
Mitsubishi Electric Australia’s Managing Director, Jeremy Needham, echoed Tsatsimas’ sentiments.
“We’ve really enjoyed sharing in the Wanderers’ success over the past two years. It seemed only natural to extend this partnership and continue supporting our local club,” said Needham.
“Since the partnership began, the Wanderers have created a great sense of community and driven grassroots programmes in Western Sydney. The positive impact on the area is truly inspiring and we’re thrilled to support this. The Asian Champions League win in 2014 was a huge achievement for football in Australia and we feel privileged to have been part of this wonderful story.”
Wanderers’ fans can enjoy the action on the pitch close-up with the state-of-the-art Diamond Vision LED screen at Parramatta Stadium, home ground of the Wanderers FC. The screen offers high definition and measures 12.8 metres wide by 7.68 metres high, for a total screen area of 98.3 m².
