Adelaide United is delighted to announce Flinders University has elevated its partnership to include supporting the Club’s A-League Women’s team.
Flinders University has been the Club’s Premier Partner since the 2019/20 season, with its brand appearing on the front of United’s Isuzu UTE A-League home kit and training apparel. However, following today’s news, Flinders University will now feature on the back of the Reds’ A-League Women’s home, away, and third strips for the next two years.
Adelaide United Commercial Director, Adam Thomson, said: “This is a tremendous show of commitment from our Premier Partner as women’s football continues to grow at an exponential rate in Australia and around the world.
“Couple that with the fact the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™ is less than two years away on our shores, and it translates into being an exciting time for our sport with lots of investment opportunities.
“As a result of this new agreement, Flinders University now hold co-major status across both our women’s and men’s sides, which is a significant milestone for the Club.
“We’re excited to see this strong relationship develop further and look forward to continuing working together.”
Flinders University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Colin Stirling, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting Adelaide United Women.
“This partnership is aligned with Flinders’ values and commitment towards advocating for increased female participation in sporting and educational opportunities.
“There is also plenty of optimism and excitement around the women’s World Cup being held in South Australia in 2023, and we see this as an important opportunity to support female role models.”
Vice-President and Executive Dean at the Flinders University College of Nursing and Health Sciences and Member on the Adelaide United Women’s Football Committee, Professor Alison Kitson, said: “Our students undertake valuable placement and research with Adelaide United, including female exercise scientists and physiologists, in a traditionally male dominated industry.
“This partnership will also continue to benefit the Women’s team by enabling elite level testing for players during the season as part of projects in physiology and dietetics.”
