North Construction & Building have continued their support of the Mariners and women’s football taking up the front of the shorts partnership across all five women’s Academy teams for the 2021/22 NPL season.
This is a partnership that has a long-lasting history, most notably symbolized by North’s construction of the Central Coast Mariners Centre of Excellence at Tuggerah. North have a great association with the Central Coast region and they work with many local organisations to improve outcomes for the community.
The partnership with the women’s Academy is of particular importance to North as they work towards the goal of breaking down stereotypes that exist in the construction industry and improving opportunities for females interested in careers in the sector. North are keen to migrate this mindset into the Mariners’ women’s football space and provide pathways for women in traditionally male oriented professions.
Thanks to North’s support, the women’s kit will be designed specifically for female athletes, ensuring compatibility with the unique body mechanics of female athletes, providing them with better fit and allowing greater movement on the field.
North’s Business Development Manager Kate Forrester expressed their delight in partnering with the Mariners once again.
“It’s exciting to support the club again this year following on from the success of last season.”
“North is passionate about being part of our local community as well as contributing to the advancement of women across the board, so this was a perfect fit for the business” Forrester said.
“We all can’t wait for the upcoming season to see the teams not only smashing goals on the field, but off it too!”
Thanks to this partnership, Central Coast Mariners will continue to improve the facilities and resources available to the women’s program, which is a vital step toward the club’s entry to into the A-League Women’s in 2022/23 and beyond.
Mariners Business Development Manager Gabby Bowles highlighted how great it is to have North back on-board in such a key area of club development.
“It is an absolute pleasure to be welcoming North back on board again this season. The company’s commitment to breaking down traditional barriers for women in the construction industry and on the sports field is of huge importance to the club.”
“Central Coast Mariners have had a strong women’s program at the club for some years and it is only through the valuable support of partners like North, that these programs can grow. With increase resources in this space, we can ensure the best opportunities are provided for our female athletes here on the Coast, which is all the more important following the news of a Central Coast Mariners A-League Women’s opportunity next season” Bowles concluded.
