Sydney, AUSTRALIA – 28 March 2013. With the AFL Premiership season ready to kick into action, Toshiba (Australia) Pty Limited has been named as the Official Consumer Electronics Partner to reigning AFL Premiers, the Sydney Swans.

As part of the two year sponsorship deal, Toshiba will supply a range of its latest notebooks, tablets and TVs for use within the Sydney Swans headquarters at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Toshiba branding will be displayed at the SCG during the AFL home and away season matches.

“With this partnership, Toshiba continues to further its passion for supporting sports and athletes in Australia, most recently following on from its sponsorship of the Australian Open 2012,” said Mark Whittard, Managing Director of Toshiba (Australia) Pty Limited.

“We are delighted to be joining one of the most professional and successful sporting organisations in Australia and look forward to showcasing our products alongside the best that the AFL has to offer.”

Sydney Swans Chief Commercial Officer Grant Rose said the Club was pleased to have Toshiba on board for the 2013 season.

“We pride ourselves on the quality brands that surround the Swans and are really excited to welcome Toshiba into our family of sponsors, as an Associate Partner.”

“Through this partnership Toshiba will gain fantastic exposure for their range of notebooks, tablets and televisions at all Swans home matches at the SCG.

“Our Club has a reputation for successful, long term partnerships – underlined by our association with Principal Partner QBE, who have been supporting the Sydney Swans for over 25 years.

“We are excited about working with Toshiba during the 2013 AFL season and hopefully for many
more to follow,” he said.

The Swans’ first home game will be against the Gold Coast Suns on Saturday, 6 April, one of nine home games to be played at the historic Sydney Cricket Ground.
