Marine transport provider Sea Swift has announced a major naming rights sponsorship deal with Cairns Brothers Junior Rugby League Football Club.
The two-year deal, for the 2018 and 2019 seasons, will help support the development of junior rugby League at one of Far North Queensland's leading rugby league clubs.
The northern Australia shipping company operates throughout the region’s remote coastal and island communities, with depots in Cairns, Weipa, Seisia, Horn Island, and Thursday Island in Queensland, and Darwin, Gove and Groote Eylandt in the Northern Territory.
Sea Swift Chief Executive Officer Fred White said Sea Swift had a proud record of supporting local communities, and was thrilled to support a sporting organisation such as Cairns Brothers.
“Sea Swift has been proudly servicing remote communities in northern Australia for the past 30 years, and we always play an active role in the communities where we operate,” Mr White said.
“Giving back is a core value of our company, and we’re thrilled to be able to play a role in supporting the mighty Brothers.
“We’ve always understood the importance of supporting local communities, because we realise that a company like Sea Swift isn’t just a passive passer-by.
“Brothers are more than just a footy club. They’re dedicated to utilising their club as a vehicle for social change, and we’re proud to be involved.
“We wish Brothers all the best for the 2018 season.”
Cairns Brothers Development Manager Chey Bird said the club was thankful for Sea Swift’s support for the next two seasons.
“This valuable partnership allows a fantastic opportunity for our club to continue providing our junior players and our club volunteers with the resources to ensure their rugby league experience is as good as it possibly can be,” said Bird.
“Fred White and his team at Sea Swift are proven performers in their field, and their generosity in supporting local causes is exemplary.
“The partnership will allow for the continuation of the club’s development programs for players and team staff.
“These programs exist to not only bolster rugby league skills, but to also provide reward and reinforce positive behaviours to create not just better footballers, but hopefully, better young men.”
Sea Swift has more than 30 years of experience providing essential services and project freight across the region with more than 400 staff and 30 vessels, and makes a significant contribution to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across the region.
