The NSW Pride are pleased to announce Kennards Self Storage as our new Gold Tier Major Partner. The pioneers of the self-storage industry have committed to the Pride for the next three years, until at least the end of the 2023 season.
The partnership, announced at Sydney Olympic Park Hockey Centre today, marks the company’s first foray into sport. The agreement will see the Kennards Self Storage logo feature proudly on the back of all NSW Pride uniforms and support staff gear during the 2021 Hockey One season.
They will also receive prominent branding at NSW Pride home games and training, while supporters can look forward to an enhanced match-day experience with special offers and giveaways throughout the season.
Through the partnership, Hockey NSW has also been able to secure a number of storage spaces across NSW, which provides greater accessibility for our regional staff and has also significantly reduced rental costs at our head office. This is a major cost saving we can pass on to our members and which will help to improve our programs and offerings across the State.
Hockey NSW CEO David Thompson said: “Kennards Self Storage is a well-recognised and proud family-owned Australian business, so we’re delighted to have them join the NSW Pride as our Gold Tier Major Partner.”
“This is a significant partnership for both the NSW Pride and Hockey NSW that will benefit not only our athletes and support staff, but our wider hockey membership base as well.
“We look forward to welcoming Kennards Self Storage to our NSW Pride family and working with them in the years to come.”
Announcing the deal, Kennards Self Storage CEO, Sam Kennard said: “When I was approached by David to consider sponsoring the NSW Pride, I jumped at the opportunity to be involved with team and join forces with our buisness.”
“I have a strong, personal connection with hockey. All three of my daughters play the sport in Sydney and I thoroughly enjoy watching their games. Although I have never played personally, I admire the sport of hockey greatly and enjoy supporting our fantastic National teams.”
“The NSW Pride are one of the top teams in Hockey One and I’m looking forward to supporting the athletes and attending many games over the next three seasons.”
