Melbourne Victory have announced the extension of their partnership with Victoria University, making them the Club’s Official University Partner for this upcoming season.
Having been a Major Partner since 2017, Victoria University provides an opportunity for its students to engage and connect with Melbourne Victory, delivering a pathway for students to gain invaluable experience in a range of departments within the Club.
The upcoming 2021/22 A-League Men’s and Women’s seasons are set to be exciting for the Melbourne Victory faithful. The Victory’s A-League Men’s side are set for a resurgent year under Tony Popovic, whilst their A-League Women’s side will be looking to retain their championship trophy from last season.
Managing Director Caroline Carnegie was looking forward to developing the relationship further.
“Our relationship with Victoria University presents an exciting pathway for students to develop careers in sport,” Carnegie said.
“We have had students enrolled in both the Masters of Sport and Exercise Sciences and Masters of Sport Business work with us through the Melbourne Victory Academy Internship Program, which has seen them assist across a number of key areas of the Club.
“We have also created opportunities through this partnership for Melbourne Victory participants to be exposed to new educational programs through our community team, that they may not have otherwise been aware of.
“We are proud to be able to make and indeed continue this connection and develop pathways to educational opportunities through our partnership.
Victoria University Vice-Chancellor Adam Shoemaker was pleased to continue the strong partnership with Melbourne Victory.
“At VU we pride ourselves on partnering with principle, establishing deep alliances with industry partners that creates opportunities for our students, staff and the communities we serve,” Shoemaker said.
“We are pleased to offer educational opportunities through our Season 2021/2022 community programs as we work together to uplift our people.”
