The Western Sydney Wanderers have today announced a partnership with Australian telecommunication newcomer MATE.
Started by three Wanderers foundation members, brothers Mark and David Fazio along with friend Jonathan Dundovic, MATE is an internet and mobile provider that has grown significantly since its 2015 launch.
With the motto “choose a provider you trust like a MATE!” the Western Sydney based telco is getting plenty of attention and it’s the whole business’ passion for football and the Wanderers that was significant in the decision to partner with the Wanderers.
“Our mission statement at MATE is that we are the everyday people, providing products consumers want, with the value and service they deserve,” said MATE General Manager Mark Fazio.
“Our partnership with the Wanderers is not just about supporting our business goals, it’s an opportunity for us as foundation members of the club to give back to the community we support and love.
“We have no contracts, all our internet plans come with unlimited data and our service is all Aussie based right here in Western Sydney.
“MATE is internet made by football fans, for football fans!”
The Wanderers partnership with MATE will see a number of offers, promotional activity and engagement occur over the three-year agreement with a focus on rewarding the club’s large membership and fan base.
Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas said the partnership was a real connection between two great Western Sydney organisations.
“MATE have brought to market an outstanding product, with outstanding customer service, a care for their people with an authentic commitment to mateship,” said Tsatsimas.
“As real football fans and foundation members of our club we are very excited to have them join as a partner and create great opportunities and offers for our wider membership and supporter base.
“We look forward to having the entire team of MATE supporting us on and off the pitch this season.”
The Western Sydney Wanderers and MATE will officially launch the partnership in the coming weeks with some exclusive member offers and media moments.
