Fujitsu General Australia has extended its commitment to the Essendon Football Club, announcing it is co-major partner of the club’s AFLW program.

“Fujitsu General is proud to come on board as the inaugural co-major partner of the Essendon AFLW team,” director of sales, marketing and product, Dave Smith said.

“Fujitsu General has been looking forward to this day since it first signed on as the Essendon VFLW co-major partner in its inaugural year. We are excited to be part of this history making era in AFL and women’s sport, and in the evolution of the Essendon Football Club.”

Last year Fujitsu General Australia renewed its agreement as co-major partner of the AFL program for an additional four years, which will take the partnership to 12 years.

Essendon Football Club CEO, Xavier Campbell said the club was delighted to have strengthened its partnership with Fujitsu General Australia to the Bombers’ historic AFLW program.

“We are incredibly proud of the strong partnership between the Essendon Football Club and Fujitsu General Australia, and our further strengthening of ties to extend to our incoming AFLW program is another example of that,” Campbell said.

“Signing Fujitsu General Australia is a wonderful progression for our club’s women’s program and to partner with an organisation that shares our vision to support and promote grassroots, community and female football programs is significant.”
