The Newcastle Jets are delighted to announce Privium Homes as the Club’s front-of-shirt sponsor for the remainder of the Hyundai A-League 2018/19 season.
The company, which offers services from property development to finance and investment solutions, will take the place of the Ledman Group who have been front-of-shirt since the beginning of the Hyundai A-League 2017/18 season.
Set to feature from this Sunday against Adelaide United, Privium Homes will take pride of place on the Club’s home jersey until their final home game against Sydney FC in late-April and potentially the Hyundai A-League Finals Series.
The Queensland based company hasn’t always been known as Privium Homes, founded as Impact Group AUS in 1996 – establishing themselves as a leading supplier of residential house and land packages.
Privium Homes has since diversified significantly, now existing as a vertically integrated business with services from development through to property management.
With over 300 employees, Privium Homes is the biggest builder in Queensland and the biggest townhouse builder in Australia.
CEO of Privium Homes, Robert Harder, said it was an exciting time to come on board with the Club.
“Newcastle Jets are a community-based Club, and we want to join the Club and we’re excited to see the Club become more and more successful,” said Harder.
“We’ve been building houses in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley for four years, and 12 months ago we opened an office in the region.
“By joining forces with the Club and coming onto the front of the playing kit, we feel it’s a logical step in connecting with the Newcastle and Hunter community.”
Jets CEO, Lawrie McKinna said it was an indication of the Club’s progress off the pitch since the Ledman Group took over ownership back in 2016.
“This is a landmark deal for the Club, with Privium Homes the first external front-of-home-shirt sponsor since the 2016/17 season,” McKinna said.
“It comes after we broke an all-time Membership record of 11,300 this season and the successful launch of our 500 Club, an initiative to engage with Newcastle and Hunter Valley businesses who are keen to invest in the Jets.
“Our growth off the field in recent years has been huge, and we believe that this is just another indicator of the progress that we’re making.
“This decision has been made with the blessing of our owner, Martin Lee, who recognises the commercial importance of this deal.”
