Sharp Extensive IT kicks new goals with the Women’s Magpies Team
Australia’s leading software solutions supplier, Sharp Extensive I.T. (Sharp EIT) has today been announced as the new corporate partner backing the powerhouse that is the AFL Women’s team (AFLW) at Melbourne-based football club Collingwood F.C., as the organisation continues to strengthen its presence in Victoria.
Backed by 20 years’ experience manned by a team of highly skilled trade specialists, Sharp EIT is one of Australia’s leading companies specialising in IT services and technology solutions, able to meet any organisational need by providing access to the latest Office Equipment, expert advice and guidance, and technology solutions including Office Printers, Laptops, Managed IT Services, as well as Digital and Interactive Display Solutions.
Sharp EIT’s two-year partnership with Collingwood F.C.’s Women’s AFL team sees the company become the Official Coaches AFLW Partner for the club throughout the women’s 2022 and 2023 season, with Sharp EIT branding to feature on apparel and signage, while also engaging in several additional initiatives and opportunities.
Mario Bernatovic, MD of Sharp EIT, said the move to partner with Collingwood F.C. further cements Sharp EIT’s position as a leading supplier for sporting organisations who not only test the boundaries in male and female competitive sport, but are always looking for a competitive edge, with the Melbourne team joining an existing stable of other partners including;
- CYCA (The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia) responsible for the iconic Sydney to Hobart yacht race,
- The Australian Turf Club, host of the richest turf race The Tab Everest,
- The NRL Wests Tigers, and
- Netball NSW.
“Sharp EIT has a long history of supporting local businesses and communities, and through our continued commitment to partnering with local sporting clubs we aim to share best of breed technology solutions that are cost-effective and, in turn, can help redirect funds where it’s needed most.
It’s been a tough couple of years for many clubs and businesses, and we believe Sharp EIT can help play a real role in equipping organisations with products that provide a competitive advantage,” Bernatovic said.
“The Collingwood F.C. collaboration means we can throw our support behind the women’s squad as an official partner, as well as kick start our bolstered efforts to expand our Melbourne service team on the ground, and streamline our service offering to provide more comprehensive support to Victorian businesses.”
Collingwood CEO Mark Anderson said the club is thrilled to welcome Sharp EIT on board.
“We’re very excited to have the support of Sharp EIT for the upcoming AFLW campaign,” Anderson said.
“It’s great to have an industry-leading professional like Sharp EIT invest in our women’s football program and we know they’ll play a prominent role in the next phase of the club’s AFLW journey.”
