MyState Bank have been announced as the new naming rights sponsor for Tasmania’s premier women’s football competition for the next two seasons.
Alongside its agreement with the Women’s Super League, MyState Bank will also sponsor the state’s referees across all levels of the sport.
Football Tasmania CEO Matt Bulkeley was delighted with the deal, in an exciting development for the sport in Tasmania.
“With more players than any other sport, the World Game is Tasmania’s Game and it’s wonderful to have the support of a prominent Tasmanian business for our premier women’s competition, as well as community football and referees,” he said.
“While we’re looking forward to welcoming A-League matches this season and finding out whether the Women’s World Cup will come to Launceston in 2023, grassroots football will always be the heart of the sport in Tasmania.
“MyState Bank’s sponsorship will help grow football in Tasmania even further, enabling communities across the state to continue to enjoy football’s vast array of health and social benefits.”
MyState Bank CEO Melos Sulicich stated: “Tasmania is a vibrant state, where dedicated, talented people in the community achieve great things every day and MyState Bank is proud to support and encourage them through our many community projects and initiatives.
“The growth of women’s sport in Tasmania has been wonderful to see, and football has been at the forefront of this. The WSL competition has expanded this year to include teams from all major centres in the state and we’re excited to play a part in its continued growth.
“MyState believes integrity is incredibly important in all areas of the community, and this is why we’ve continued our partnership with Football Tasmania to encourage integrity and sportsmanship across all junior matches in Tasmania.”
