Camden Town Brewery remains as the official beer partner of Arsenal

Arsenal and Camben Town

Arsenal have announced a further extension of their partnership with Camden Town to remain their official beer partner for the upcoming 2023/24 season.

This partnership initially began in 2019 when the club agreed a deal with Camden Town Brewery owner and lifelong Arsenal supporter, Jasper Cuppaidge, who achieved his dream of being a major sponsor.

To celebrate the renewal, Camden Town Brewery launched a new beer, ‘North London is Red’ Lager. Consulting with the Arsenal supporters via social media on their favourite football moments, icons, and matchday rituals, the lager has been created as a homage to the Arsenal family.

Camden Town Brewery is a Brewery that was founded in 2010 by Australian Jasper Cuppaidge and is located in Kentish Town, Central London where the company conduct tastings, brewery tours and the ultra-popular ‘Camden Beer Hall’, a bookable room to host big events or parties.

Arsenal Chief Commercial Officer Juliet Slot was pleased with how the relationship has panned out for the fans.

“We’re excited to extend our partnership with our neighbours and fellow Arsenal supporters at Camden Town Brewery,” he said via club statement on www.arsenal.com.

“The atmosphere at Emirates Stadium has been fantastic this season and Camden beer has become an important part of the matchday experience for our passionate supporters.

“We’ve already achieved so much together in areas such as sustainability and supporter engagement, and the launch of the new ‘North London is Red Lager’ is a fantastic way to kick off our renewed commitment as we move forward together.”

Camden Town Brewery are also putting on a promotion where fans purchasing beer from their website will go in with a chance to win a pair of tickets to the first Premier League match of the new season against Nottingham Forest.

Holly Gibson, Head of Brand Experience & Partnerships at Camden Town Brewery also expressed her excitement for the agreed extension.

“We have loved working with Arsenal over the past four years and we are really proud of what we have achieved so far,” as mentioned in the club statement on www.arsenal.com

“Who doesn’t love highlights? We’ve saved millions of cups from landfill by introducing a re-usable cup scheme (the first of its kind in the Premier League). We teamed up with David Seaman to serve fresh pints.

“We brewed a double-strength Camden Hells Lager to celebrate 50 years since Arsenal’s double, we supported Arsenal in achieving the record number of ticket sales and attendees to the WSL, and so much more. Cheers to the Gunners and roll on next season!”

It has been a popular partnership with the fans who enjoy benefits as well as the beer itself on Emirates Stadium matchdays, making this a fantastic addition to the club and ultimately one that is destined for the long-term.

Newcastle Jets secure A-League future with new owners confirmed

Newcastle Jets have confirmed Maverick Sports Partners as the Club’s new owners. This ownership, subject to final approval from the APL and Football Australia, will launch a “new era” for the Jets under MSP ownership.

This massive announcement comes not long after Australian Professional Leagues chairman Stephen Conroy failed to guarantee Newcastle’s future only three months ago.

The statement said that Maverick Sports Partners have confirmed an agreement to acquire the Newcastle Jets Football Club and are now deeply focused on implementing their plans to bring long term stability and success to this Club.

The Group lead by experienced sports administrator Maurice Bisetto who played a major part in the establishment of Western United FC in the A-Leagues.

Maverick Sports Group is an Australian sports consortium based out of Wetherhill Park in Sydney’s South-West.

Newcastle Jets CEO Shane Mattiske confirmed the significant news.

“Today is a hugely significant day for this Club and this community, as we confirm Maverick Sports Partners as the new owners of the Jets,” said Mattiske in a club statement.

“Over the last three years, we have built a strong foundation for the future of this football club, and it is exciting to be beginning a new era with incoming owners who believe in the opportunity that exists with this Club, with this community and with football as a whole.

“Throughout our process, Maurice Bisetto, the consortium representative, and his partners have demonstrated a deep understanding of football and how to bring success. They also understand this community and their plans are very much aligned with the work that is already underway. I know the Group will bring positive new thinking, new connections and a wealth of experience that will drive the growth of this Club moving forward.

“With this transition to a permanent ownership structure, it is important to acknowledge the support that the outgoing ownership group has provided to the Club over the last three and a half years. These owners believed in the importance of this Club to this community and to the A-Leagues’ competition as a whole.

“They have played a hugely significant role in the history of this Club and on behalf of all fans and stakeholders of the Jets I want to acknowledge the commitment and contribution they have made to us all. Their huge support of this Club will forever be remembered.”

Maverick Sports Partners Director Maurice Bisetto is determined to connect with the Newcastle, Hunter Valley and Northern NSW Community.

“We believe in this Club, the A-Leagues and its players and we’re determined to build success for the Jets and this region,” said Bisetto in a statement.

“We have been impressed by the strength of football here in this region. We know there is a strong historical fanbase and a strong participation base here and we want to bring all of these people together for our Men’s and Women’s games.

“Our team at Maverick Sports Partners are absolutely committed to, and very excited, about the opportunity that exists here at the Newcastle Jets. We see this as the beginning of a new era for the Newcastle Jets and look forward to building a truly great Club with the support of this community.”

This news is huge for the league and the Jets financially, with the club no longer being a financial responsibility for the four other A-League clubs that funded them (Sydney FC, Western Sydney, Western United and Wellington Phoenix).

The Jets can easily recruit players and rebuild to become a stronger unit on the field whilst securing stability off it, and the foundation A-League club with a healthy fanbase and great location can continue to exist.

Iconic Lambert Park re-opens after $2m refurbishment

Lambert Park, home of the APIA Leichardt Football Club, officially re-opened on the weekend after a successful $2m refurbishment.

The extensive investment for the iconic local club includes:

– Replacement of the all-weather playing surface

– Improved drainage

– New concrete edge, stairs and fencing around the perimeter

– Improved access with a new ramp to allow access on the field

The ground is gradually improving to become one of the premier NPL surfaces in the country and this is another one of many recent upgrades helped by the commitment of the Inner West Council.

Currently the ground has two main stands on either side of the playing surface. In the southern stands, there are dressing room facilities, a social club with views of the game, press facilities and media facilities.

On Sunday, the new look Lambert Park was the home for the APIA Leichardt vs Gladesville Ravens NPL Women’s game, and the day was spent in celebration of the refurbishment, as the club organised an event.

The event included an official ceremony by Inner West Council pre-game, free ice cream and activations which drew a decent crowd to the game.

APIA posted an update regarding Sunday’s re-opening.

“Lambert Park was filled with Maroon and Blue as over 400 predominantly female footballers celebrated the $2 million Lambert Park upgrade,” APIA confirmed on their social media accounts.

“The day was filled with some fantastic football and some great activations and enjoyed by all.

“The clubs would also like to thank local clubs Balmain & District Football Club, Leichardt Saints and opponents on the day Gladesville Ravens Women’s NPL football for supporting the day.

“It was a special day for football in our community.”

Lambert Park is an iconic ground that has seen some of Australia’s best names start their careers there since it was first used in 1954.

APIA Leichardt Football Club has produced more Matildas and Socceroos than any other club in Australian history.

The ground gets another much deserved upgrade and will continue to host NPL NSW matches across all age groups in both men’s and women’s competitions.
