Sydney, 27 June 2017
Greenland Australia and its joint venture partner in the large mixed use ‘Park Sydney’ development in Erskineville, GH Australia, have become major sponsors of the South Sydney District Rugby League Referees Association for three-years. A sporting association sponsorship of this kind is a first for both property developers.
Greenland Australia and GH Australia are working with the Erskineville community to ensure a destination is created on the 6.9-hectare site in the Ashmore Estate that the locals can engage with and enjoy. Warehouses are set to be replaced by a dynamic retail offering, new streets and shared pathways, and a 7,400-square metre public park that will have a range of features designed to encourage active use by the whole community.
Sherwood Luo, Managing Director of Greenland Australia recognises rugby league is the most popular winter sport played in and around Erskineville, “With over 250 games played across the district on weekends, and a record 23 first time referees starting in 2017, we are excited to lend our support to the Association. Their hard work and dedication to the sport brings joy and fitness to so many youngsters.
“The hallowed ground of Erskineville Oval, where Souths Juniors practice to this day, is just across the road from our ‘Park Sydney’ site. Knowing this, it seemed obvious that we should get on board and help the referees and touch judges who volunteer their time to help others. The Association’s professional development program also does great work.”
Scott Dalby, President of Souths Referees said that the joint venture’s support came as a pleasant surprise, “Souths Referees has only had two major sponsors before, so for Greenland Australia and GH Australia to approach us about this opportunity says a lot about how much they value grass-roots sport in South Sydney. We look forward to growing the relationship.”
