Brisbane Roar is pleased to announce it has joined forces with life and health insurer AIA Australia for the remainder of the Hyundai A-League 2019/20 season.
As part of the new partnership, the AIA Australia branding will feature prominently on the sleeve of the Roar’s Hyundai A-League kit for remaining 2019/20 fixtures and the Club looks forward to building a solid foundation to the partnership.
As one of Australia’s leading life and health insurance providers, with a purpose to make a difference in helping people live healthier, longer, better lives, AIA Australia’s core values align strongly with Brisbane Roar’s commitment to providing opportunities for more Queenslanders to be active and engaged in their community through football.
“We are delighted to be partnering with an organisation who have such a strong commitment to bettering the health and wellbeing of all Australians,” Brisbane Roar CEO David Pourre said.
“Providing opportunities for more people to enjoy an engaged, active and healthy lifestyle is a core component of both the Brisbane Roar and AIA Australia, and this is a terrific opportunity for both organisations.”
AIA Australia and New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Damien Mu said: “As an organisation our dream is to champion Australia and New Zealand to be the healthiest and best protected nations in the world and we are proud to partner with Brisbane Roar.
“We recently undertook a research project which measured each of the States and Territories over a number of health and wellbeing indicators - what that showed us is that QLD is tracking well when it comes to low chronic disease risk but it could make improvements in the areas of physical activity, mental wellbeing and preventative health.
“This is why the partnership between AIA and Brisbane Roar will play an important role in drawing awareness to the impact that small lifestyle changes can have on long-term health – we hope to inspire Brisbane Roar fans and the broader community to take those small steps towards living a healthier, longer, better life.
“Because what benefits fans and clubs in turn benefits society – by creating this shared value we’ll help transform Australia’s health and wellbeing.”
