Hockey Club Melbourne is pleased to announce Sponsorship Matters, as its final partner for the inaugural Hockey One season.

Sponsorship Matters facilitates like-minded organisations to develop strategic alliances to achieve common objectives through meaningful partnerships. Director and founder, Kristen Skinner has an extensive business background in education management, tourism, sport, leisure and major events sectors.

Many professional organisations have become dependent upon sponsorship support to run a sustainable service for their membership. Most could not function without sponsors’ financial investment, in-kind support and expertise.

Sponsorship Matters has a history of delivering strategic partnerships within the sporting landscape. Sponsorship Matters will appear on all HC Melbourne playing shirts in the 2019 Hockey One season.

Speaking on the announcement, Skinner said the opportunity was beneficial for both parties.

“We’re excited to be coming on board as a partner for HC Melbourne’s first year and to be involved in making history. It is our goal to develop alliances with brands through meaningful partnerships and this opportunity with HC Melbourne fits the aim of our business perfectly,” remarked Kristen Skinner.

“Of great appeal and inspiration is the clear focus of the club to champion gender equity and deliver a sporting code first to provide equal platform opportunities for both men and women,” Skinner added.

Hockey Victoria CEO Andrew Skillern said he was delighted to have HC Melbourne align with an organisation that has a strong business reputation.

“Sponsorship Matters has a proven history in delivering meaningful partnerships with elite sport and elite athletes and we are excited to associate Hockey Club Melbourne with such a strong brand,” Skillern said.

HC Melbourne play their first home matches at the State Netball Hockey Centre against Brisbane Blaze in Round 2, on Sunday 6 October.
