A-League club Central Coast Mariners has been boosted by the news long-time partner Mars Food Australia has extended its shirt sponsorship deal until the end of the 2013-14 season.
Mars Food Australia’s front of shirt sponsorship extension, through its Masterfoods brand, guarantees the locally-based company will enter a ninth year as a key strategic partner of the Mariners, having backed the club since its A-League debut.
Central Coast Mariners chairman Peter Turnbull said: “Mars Food Australia’s sponsorship of the Central Coast Mariners Football Club has been win-win since day one. For us, their support means so much more than merely the presence of the Masterfoods logo on our kits. Mars Food Australia assist us in raising the profile of football on the Central Coast and enhancing our club’s reputation locally, nationally and internationally. Perhaps best of all, the company directly employs over 300 Central Coast people and their headquarters are just kilometres from both our administrative and football bases, meaning we possess a true local partnership providing benefits on an international scale.”
Mars Food Australia’s chief financial officer Andrew Poll added: “The professionalism of the club’s management, coaches, players and support staff are a credit to our local community and will ensure their continued success on the field. We look forward to another successful season in 2013-14.”
