RSC Anderlecht collaborate with Napoleon Sport

Napoleon & RSC Anderlecht

Napoleon Sports and RSC Anderlecht have agreed to a four-year partnership. Napoleon will be seen on the team’s jersey sleeves while Anderlecht will be able to improve the fan experience at Lotto Park because of the collaboration.

Napoleon and RSC Anderlecht are brought together by a shared passion for sports and its followers, as well as their experiences. This will involve making improvements to the stadium experience for fans on game days. Thus, this collaboration will enhance Anderlecht’s standing as a premier entertainment provider in the Belgian football environment.

From the start of the new season, Napoleon Sports will be one of the club’s primary corporate sponsors and will be clearly visible on the sleeves of the men’s and women’s team shirts. Up to the end of 2024, Napoleon Sports will also be clearly present at the stadium.

Napoleon Sports and Casino accepts full responsibility for sustainable entertainment both online and at its actual casino and gaming arcades across Belgium as one of the market leaders in Belgian for online entertainment and a locally based business. The Knokke Grand Casino and 25 arcades are owned and run by Napoleon Sports & Casino in Belgium.

The Napoleon Group, which employs about 400 people, has been gradually expanding since its founding more than 40 years ago. The headquarters of Napoleon Sports and Casino are in Erembodegem.

CEO of Non-Sports Kenneth Bornauw stated via press release:

“We are pleased to welcome Napoleon Sports as an important partner for the coming years. RSC Anderlecht is and remains the football brand with the biggest reach in Belgium, and during our discussions with Napoleon Sports, it became quite clear that the two partners can strengthen each other and their ambitions for the future.”

CEO of Napoleon Sports Eamonn O’Loughlin added via press release.

“We are extremely pleased and honoured to become one of RSC Anderlecht’s key corporate partners for both the men’s and women’s teams,” he said.

“We are proud to support this legendary club and its fantastic supporters for the next four years. Like RSCA, Napoleon stands for entertainment, excitement, thrills and unforgettable moments. We want to experience those thrills together with all the fans.”

Anderlecht’s next fixture is at home on August 20, where they will wear their shirt featuring the Napoleon logo.

The 2023-24 Local Sports Infrastructure Fund to cater for participation boom

2023-24 Local Sports Infrastructure Fund

The Victorian Government’s 2023-24 Local Sports Infrastructure Fund is a state-wide investment, open until December 13, 2023.

This fund was created to adapt to the increasing need for infrastructure that is required for regular active sport and recreation.

Utilising three streams, sports clubs, facility managers and community organisations will all benefit from the following grants:

  • Community Facilities – up to $300,000
  • Community Sports Lighting – up to $250,000
  • Planning – up to $40,000

Led by Minister for Community Sport, Ros Spence, the creation of infrastructure will be made possible by planners, architects, engineers, project managers,
builders, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, facility managers and operational staff as part on the construction process. In turn, this has a direct link back to the local economy and offers hundreds of jobs.

For sporting & recreation clubs, sporting associations & leagues, educational institutions, not-for-profit community organisations, businesses and individuals looking to apply for the Local Sports Infrastructure Fund, an important note is that they cannot do so directly. Instead, they will coordinate this with Local Government Authorities and the Alpine Resorts Victoria who will apply on their behalf.

Applications close at 5pm on Wednesday December 13 2023 – with successful candidates of the 2023-24 Local Sports Infrastructure Fund announced from April 2024.

Football Queensland remain with Kappa for five more seasons until 2028

Football Queensland & Kappa partnership extension

Football Queensland have announced a five-year partnership extension with iconic international sports brand Kappa as its official apparel partner from 2024.

This relationship between the two parties has been very strong since they first partnered all the way back in 2017 and reinforces the support for football in Queensland that the brand has had.

Kappa has provided quality garments for some of Europe’s biggest clubs including Manchester City, Juventus, AC Milan and the Italian National team.

It’s a brand that was established in 1916 in Turin and eventually in 1978 they rebranded themselves to branch out as a sportwear brand where they focused purely on football-related products and designs.

For Football Queensland, they currently produce and provide quality on and off-field apparel for all Queensland State Representative teams including the state’s futsal representative squads. Kappa also provide on-field apparel for the game’s referees on the FQ website.

They also helped sponsor and start up the Kappa Women’s Super Cup and Kappa Pro Series tournaments that debuted in late 2021 and 2022 respectively for clubs to participate in across the state.

FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci was extremely pleased to announce this partnership extension following Kappa’s amazing support.

“Football Queensland is incredibly excited to announce Kappa as our official apparel partner for the next five years following a competitive tender process which saw us receive 20 expressions of interest and 15 submissions of an extremely high quality,” Cavallucci said via Football Queensland press release.

“In their seven years as a Football Queensland partner, Kappa has provided fantastic support to Football Queensland, our clubs and the wider football community thanks to their quality of apparel, ability to deliver on their promises and the team’s unwavering commitment to customer service.

“We’ve built a wonderful working relationship with the team at Kappa thanks to their willingness to go above and beyond to deliver outcomes for our organisation and our game, and we’re delighted to continue working in partnership with them from next year.”

Kappa Australia Director Ze’ev Bogaty shared the same sentiment for the great relationship the two parties have created.

“Kappa is a strong supporter of football in Queensland and has been proud to invest in the game since the partnership with Football Queensland began in 2017,” Bogaty mentioned in the FQ press release.

“Some highlights of the partnership have included the development of the teal shirt for first year referees, witnessing Queensland state sides dominate on the national stage in Kappa kit, and the launch of the Kappa Women’s Super Cup and Kappa Pro Series tournaments.

“As we embark on another five years as the state’s official apparel partner and continue our close working relationship with Football Queensland, we look forward to contributing even more to the growth and success of football across the state.”

There is a shared goal of improving the grassroots game in Queensland from both parties and the track record of Kappa’s immense investment over the past seven years has shown that this extension will do wonders for Queensland football.
