South Melbourne FC is excited to launch the highly anticipated SMFC in Business Corporate Networking Group ahead of the 2016 season.
The formulation of the group has been twelve months in the making. The aim is to connect like-minded individuals and businesses that support our club in the season ahead.
In 2016, a tiered partnership approach has been implemented, with each category being defined by an appropriate level under the SMFC in Business model. This ensures that all of our Corporate Partners benefit by becoming a member of this new initiative.
There will be networking opportunities in our fully catered Corporate Area at Lakeside Stadium during our 13 home NPL Victoria matches at Lakeside Stadium. Furthermore, we will also be hosting other events external to our football matches and without a football focus, aiming to bring our SMFC inBusiness partners together.
Over 60 businesses have already committed to SMFC for 2016, a 200% increase on our 2015 record. All of our partners will be announced via our media channels throughout January and February.
Speaking with smfc.com.au, Head of SMFC Corporate Sales Nicholas Maikousis was excited about the launch of the new group. “We have worked tirelessly over the last twelve months to formulate a model that caters to our growing Corporate base. It is testament to the growth of our club that we have already been able to welcome over sixty corporate partners for the 2016 season. We cannot wait to officially welcome them all into the extendedSMFC Family.”
SMFC President Leo Athanasakis echoed Maikousis’ thoughts. “We have been blown away by the amount of support that we have received so far for 2016. With our new model and our increased off-field staff, we are very excited to commence this journey. The aim is to further continue to grow our club off the field as we have done over the past few seasons.”
