The young stars of the Central Coast Mariners Youth Academy have secured a new major sponsor to take them into the 2020 season.
Property developer, Central Real, have signed on to throw their support behind the youngest up and coming football players on the Central Coast, joining the Academy as a Platinum Partner.
Mariners Academy Director Ken Schembri said support from Central Real will have a major impact on players and facilities going forward.
“We need the local support to continue to grow the talent of our kids and develop the players of tomorrow,” Schembri said.
“Sponsorships of this caliber with Central Real will help make this a reality and I know the youth teams representing the Central Coast next season will be proud to have Central Real across their jerseys when they play some of the best teams in the state.”
Sharing facilities with the Central Coast Mariners Hyundai A-League Club, the Youth Academy is one of the strongest youth teams in New South Wales.
Central Real CEO, Richard Ellis, said it was important to get in at the grass roots level and support local talent.
“The Youth Academy is a great alignment with the core values within our organization in striving for excellence,” Ellis said.
“It’s great to get behind young local talent so they can continue to develop, as well as help deliver excellent facilities with some of the best coaching in the country.”
“It means a great deal to us to give back to the Central Coast community that we are part of.”
