LEADING rental vehicle provider, Hertz Australia, will elevate its partnership with Melbourne in 2020, becoming a Major Partner for the club’s AFL and AFLW teams.

As part of the new three-year partnership, Hertz’s logo will be proudly displayed on the front of the Demons’ AFLW guernsey and on the men’s playing shorts and media polo.

Eoin MacNeill, Vice President Hertz Asia Pacific said he was proud to build on the strong, established connection with the club.  

“Since 1984, Hertz and Melbourne have shared some form of alignment and I believe it’s this long-standing partnership that has resulted in the positive results we see from our relationship with the Dees,” he toldMelbourne Media.

“Times have certainly changed since 1984, but for Hertz, its commitment to quality customer service, access to a wide range of reliable vehicles and rewarding its loyal customers has remained at the forefront.”

Passionate about supporting the female sport movement in Australia, MacNeill is also thrilled to further develop Hertz’s involvement with the pioneers of the AFLW competition.

“When deciding to increase our support of the Melbourne Football Club, the inclusion across both men’s and women’s teams was an important one,” he said.

“It’s inspiring to see sporting stars such as Daisy Pearce forge a strong career pathway for young female footballers, placing women’s sport front-of-mind. We’re really excited to be involved in 2020 and beyond.”

Melbourne Football Club CEO, Gary Pert, is equally as pleased to see the partnership extend, as Hertz continues to see the benefits of partnering with the club.

“It’s rare in this day and age to see such a long-term partnership between a sponsor and a club, and I think it speaks volumes to the aligned strategy and values we share with Hertz,” he told Melbourne Media.

“Hertz’s iconic logo will proudly be on display on both the men’s and women’s playing apparel for the next three years and I think this is yet another vote of confidence for the club’s football programs.

“We believe the success to any partnership is driving true mutual benefit, so I encourage all of our members to use their exclusive discount and select Hertz for their vehicle rental requirements.”

Hertz Australia offers Melbourne Members a 20% discount on domestic vehicle hire, along with access to its ‘Gold Plus Rewards’ Loyalty Program.

With a diverse and modern fleet that ranges from economy cars, to SUVS and Prestige vehicles that are available at over 10,000 locations globally, Hertz ensures Melbourne fans are able to take advantage of award-winning service and great rates when travelling around the world.
