Caltex has become a new co-major sponsor for the Brisbane Lions.
The Lions on Thursday announced Caltex had signed on for at least the next two years.
As part of the agreement, the Caltex brand will feature on the front of Brisbane’s home guernsey and on the back of the Lions’ away guernsey as well as appearing on all official on-field apparel.
Brisbane Lions Chairman, Andrew Wellington, said the partnership was important for both Caltex and the Lions, and opens the door for potential future opportunities.
“We are delighted to have the Caltex brand joining the Brisbane Lions at a pivotal time for the club as we continue to evolve on and off the field,” he said.
“A Co-Major Partner plays such an important role for any Club, and we look forward to working closely with Caltex for at least the next few years,” said Wellington.
Caltex, a global brand owned by Chevron – one of the world’s leading integrated energy companies, has a long and proud history in Australia.
Chevron Australia Downstream General Manager, Lorne Chambers, said it was exciting to partner Caltex with the Brisbane Lions as they look to build on their 2022 success.
“The Lions are an integral part of the Brisbane community and much like the club we have big growth plans for the Caltex brand in 2023,” he said.
“I look forward to an exciting and successful relationship that brings together two great brands in the Lions and Caltex.”
Boom recruit Josh Dunkley was part of the launch, giving free fuel to five unsuspecting drivers at Caltex’s new service station at Crestmead on Brisbane’s south yesterday.
Chevron Australia earlier in the month pledged a donation of $1 million to emergency flood relief and recovery efforts in Western Australia’s Kimberley region following severe flooding caused by ex-Tropical Cyclone Ellie.
Chevron Australia is also matching employee donations dollar-for-dollar with all money raised supporting communities in the region who have experienced destruction and significant property damage.
“Chevron Australia is committed to supporting Australian communities, particularly in times of need,” said Chevron Australia Acting Managing Director Kory Judd.
“We have all seen the devastation that has occurred in the Kimberley from the flooding, and our thoughts are with the community members who have been impacted, especially the regional, remote and indigenous communities who have been severely affected or become isolated.
“On behalf of the company and our workforce, I would also like to send my gratitude to the community members and emergency workers who have courageously battled treacherous conditions to protect lives and property.
“We hope our contribution can aid in the provision of immediate emergency relief as well as support what is expected to be a significant recovery for the region as communities seek to rebuild and reconnect with country.”
