Hunter Stadium seeks naming sponsor

John Quayle has announced the start of a search for the new naming rights sponsor for the Hunter Stadium.

Venues NSW Chairman John Quayle has announced the start of a search for the new naming rights sponsor for the Hunter-s centrepiece sporting venue.

Venues NSW has invited expressions of interest from potential naming rights sponsors for Hunter Stadium.

“The home ground of the Hunter-s two flagship sport teams is seeking a new naming rights sponsor, presenting a unique opportunity for the right company to associate their brand with this landmark facility,” said Mr Quayle.

“More than 57,000 cars pass the stadium every day, making it an essential attraction in the local community, and prime signage is available in the TV arc, reaching viewers across the country.

“In addition to being the home ground of both the Knights and the Jets, the stadium represents the Hunter region on both a national and international scale through major marquee events like the British and Irish Lions tour schedule for June this year.

“With a state-of-the-art new grandstand, over 26 major events and more than 330,000 spectators visiting the venue each year, Hunter Stadium is an icon of sport in the region with a very bright future ahead,” he said.

Mr Quayle said the naming rights sponsor will gain a significant presence in the Hunter community.

“Venues NSW is seeking to enter a long-term agreement with the right party and we are excited to take this opportunity to the market,” he said.

Venues NSW is also seeking a naming rights sponsor for Parramatta Stadium. Expressions of interest should be submitted by 28 March 2013.
