A new era has begun for Floreat Athena Football Club with the announcement of luxury car dealership Lexus of Perth as the club’s major sponsor for the next two years.
The sponsorship will see Lexus of Perth branding on the front of shirt on all senior squad kits including the U-18s, U-20s and NPLWA team for the entire home and away matches during the 2020 and 2021 seasons.
Lexus of Perth branding and signage will also be highly visible around the stadium and inside the club’s bar and restaurant facilities, email footers and website and social media platforms.
New Athena President Emmanuel Takoniatis said the sponsorship with Lexus of Perth was a coup for not only the club, but for the NPL competition in Western Australia.
“This is the result of some hard work by the new committee and its determination to focus and engage with a wide spectrum of industry across the community.
“Lexus of Perth is Western Australia’s only Lexus dealership, proudly showcasing the stunning Lexus range. They are well respected within the local community, which is reflected in them being awarded New Car Dealer of the Year at the 2019 Automotive Excellence Awards” he said.
“One of our key targets as a club and as a new board is to lay the foundation for a stronger period of growth in the coming years right across all our commercial and business units” Takoniatis added.
“We’re confident today’s announcement with Lexus of Perth reinforces that commitment loudly and clearly to our members, players, volunteers and supporters.
Lexus of Perth Managing Director David Jeary said he was excited by the new partnership with Athena.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to tap into grassroots football for the Lexus of Perth brand and connect with a game which is the most participated team sport in the country” he said.
“It’s a delight to partner with the Athena Football Club and we are confident it’s a relationship that will benefit both parties on and off the pitch” Jeary added.
Lexus of Perth is based in Osborne Park at 359 Scarborough Beach Road.
The Athena kits featuring the new Lexus of Perth branding will be on show for Round One of the 2020 NPLWA series against Perth Soccer Club at Dorrien Gardens on March 14.
