Australia’s largest rail freight business, Aurizon is the new Principal Partner of the triple-premiership winning Queensland Firebirds.
The three-year partnership has been secured on the eve of the 2021 Suncorp Super Netball season, with a pre-season tour of regional Queensland kicking off tomorrow.
Aurizon’s Managing Director & CEO Andrew Harding said Aurizon was delighted to partner with the Queensland Firebirds, a high-performance team competing in the world’s best netball league.
“Aurizon is proud to announce our three-year partnership in Queensland with the Firebirds,” Harding said.
“The Queensland Firebirds have a proud history of delivering results, based on excellence, teamwork and passion. Since their inception in 1997, the Firebirds have won three premierships (2011, 2015, 2016) and been one of the great success stories in Australian sport.
“The Firebirds have shown what can be achieved through teamwork, excellence and commitment, and are inspiring young women to participate in netball and aim for the stars.
“Aurizon is committed to building a more inclusive, diverse team across our national operations and having a pipeline of young women leaders to support our future success. We see great alignment with the Firebirds in their championing of success and excellence in sport, with an ever-growing participation of young women in netball.
“With more than 80% of Aurizon’s employees living and working in regional communities, we are also delighted that the Firebirds have a commitment to regional Queensland with community engagement across the state.”
As Principal Partner, Aurizon will feature in the most prominent position across all Queensland Firebirds apparel, support the Firebirds travelling on regional tours as well as having a significant presence on game day at the Firebirds’ fortress, and the home of netball in Queensland, Nissan Arena.
