Roar launch Corporate Hospitality packages

Brisbane Roar has launched an exciting range of Corporate Hospitality packages for the upcoming Hyundai A-League season.

Brisbane Roar-s title defence has been boosted significantly with the club releasing a new range of corporate packages for the Hyundai A-League 2011/12 season aimed at the ever increasing corporate network.

In fact, there has never been a better time to do business with the Roar.

Over 50,000 people watched Brisbane clinch the Championship in the most dramatic of fashions at Suncorp Stadium in March - including those in the sold out Executive Corporate Suites and Boxes.

With the new season fast approaching, the club will be striving for even more history by becoming the first Hyundai A-League team to successfully defend its crown.

Early next year Brisbane will also make its debut in Asia-s premier Football competition - the AFC Champions League.

Brisbane Roar now offers a wide range of hospitality options ensuring there-s a package available to suit the needs of any business.

CEO Eugenie Buckley said corporate hospitality packages with Brisbane Roar went far beyond the entertainment of staff and clients.

“We want to create a range of networking opportunities for like-minded business people,” Buckley said.

“Football in Australia has a massive reach, with over 1.7 million playing the game - which is more than Australian Rules, Rugby League and Rugby Union combined.

“Our game is also the only football code with a national competition for women and Football is the fastest growing female participation sport in Australia.

“However, the ability of Football to bring businesses together is a global phenomenon.

“Our campaign in the AFC Champions League will open doors for Queensland businesses to create contacts within Asia and vice versa.”

One of the most exciting opportunities this season will be launch of the new 1303 Club, an exclusive business club named to commemorate club-s historic first Championship - secured on the 13th of March.

The 1303 Club will provide members with unprecedented access to the club and opportunities for business networking and promotion.

In another first for the club, the upcoming season will see the introduction of the Champions Room, where a wide range of like-minded business people will have the opportunity to network and socialise in a large open plan suite, while taking in the amazing atmosphere only Football can provide.

Brisbane Roar play 13 home matches in the Hyundai A-League 2011/2012 season starting with an opening Grand Final rematch against the Central Coast Mariners on October 8.

Ben Mannion, former CEO of Retail Radio, has joined the Brisbane Roar as the Corporate Sales Manager and will manage all Corporate Hospitality Packages along with the 1303 Club and the Champions Room.
