The Port Melbourne Football Club is delighted to confirm an arrangement with current Platinum Sponsor Stannards Accountants & Advisors to rename North Port Oval for the upcoming 2018 VFL Finals Series.
For the duration of the 2018 season – inclusive of our final three home-and-away games against Coburg, Essendon and Collingwood – North Port Oval shall be known as ‘Stannards Stadium’.
The “renaming” will incorporate references to the ground in all competition media, marketing and fixturing as Stannards Stadium; and is a unique association that follows on from last year’s short-term Finals Series name of ‘Fortburn Stadium’.
Stannards are a Melbourne-based accounting firm who have been supporters of the Borough for many years. Port Melbourne President Michael Shulman (Partner at Stannards) said he was delighted to be strengthening their relationship through the short-term ground naming rights.
“Three consecutive weekends of VFL Finals are a terrific showcase of football at the home of the Port Melbourne Football Club,” Shulman said.
“Stannards’ are very proud to support community-based football, particularly a club such as Port Melbourne which has such a rich history that now also encapsulates women’s football.”
The Port Melbourne Football Club is very thankful for the ongoing generosity of Michael and Stannards, and look forward to the continuation of our wonderful partnership well in to the future.
