Community Bank Samford scored a goal, becoming a gold sponsor of Samford’s largest community sports club: Samford Rangers FC. From 2023 to 2025, the Bank will specifically sponsor the Senior Metro Men’s teams. Sponsorship also extends to FQPL3 Women’s teams, coinciding with Australia co-hosting the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
In its milestone 50th year, Samford Rangers is forecasting over 900 members and is planning a number of events that will also promote Community Bank Samford’s support of this community-focused football club.
“Sponsors play a crucial role for any community sports club and Samford Ranges FC are extremely lucky to have Community Bank Samford as a loyal Gold sponsor,” SRFC sponsorship co-ordinator, Bailee Saccu, said.
“Community Bank Samford was built by the community for the community and is committed to returning profits to the local communities. As part of the Bendigo Bank Referral program, Samford Rangers FC also receive direct financial support for every SRFC member that uses Community Bank Samford,” she said.
“Samford Rangers FC feel privileged that Community Bank Samford has chosen to align with our great community sporting club for another 3 years.”
The sponsorship contribution has enabled the Samford Rangers to purchase new retro playing kits to celebrate the club’s 50th anniversary season. Community Bank Samford’s branding presence includes a front-of-shirt logo as well as on-field signage.
“These playing kits will be used for 2023 and kept by each player as a memento of the anniversary season and no doubt will be worn for many years to come,” Bailee said.
“As a non-profit and volunteer run community sports club, every dollar received is spent directly into providing services and equipment the club needs from match day balls to medical tape and umpire’s fees.”
Samford Rangers FC’s mission is to be a community-focused football club that caters to every age, gender and skill level. As such, it has firmly positioned itself as an integral part of the Samford and surrounds community.
Community Bank Samford is proud to continue its strong support of this goal-orientated club, which Bailee acknowledges.
“On behalf of Samford Rangers FC, we thank your continued support of Samford Rangers FC.”
This Samford Rangers FC gold sponsorship is funded by a grant from Pine Rivers Community Finance Ltd, which owns and operates Community Bank Samford.
