Hockey Australia is delighted to announce the renewal of its partnership with East Coast Car Rentals (ECCR) for another three years.
It is another partnership coup for the sport, following the announcement of new partner, Westcare Ambulance earlier this week.
The contract renewal will continue to see the East Coast Car Rentals logo on the right chest of the Kookaburras and Hockeyroos playing uniforms.
The announcement coincides with the Jillaroos’ and Burras’ participation at the Women’s and Men’s Junior World Cups currently taking place in Santiago and Malaysia respectively, where the ECCR logo features on the front of both teams’ playing shirts.
“This is a terrific outcome for the sport in Australia to build on this successful relationship with East Coast Car Rentals,” said HA CEO David Pryles.
“Growth is one of the key pillars in our current whole of sport strategy and ECCR have signalled their desire to grow their operations to more sites around Australia, so together we look forward to helping each other fulfil our ambitions.”
“To secure an additional three-year association underlines the value ECCR see in the partnership, so we are committed to seeing it continue to go from strength to strength.”
East Coast Car Rentals is one of Australia’s largest independent car hire providers. With 13 branches in five cities across Australia, the company is looking to expand and grow its service to more locations.
“We are thrilled to extend our collaboration with Hockey Australia for another three years,” said East Coast Car Rentals CEO Daniel Kearney.
“Our business is committed to getting Australians where they need to be and I feel this commitment really aligns Hockey Australia’s vision from the grassroots through to the elite ranks. Together, we aim to drive success on and off the field.”
ECCR Director Rohan Marx echoed Kearney’s sentiments, emphasising the mutual value in the partnership.
“This renewed agreement signifies the strong foundation and shared goals between East Coast Car Rentals and Hockey Australia,” said Marx.
“As a company, we take pride in our commitment to values that parallel the dedication and excellence demonstrated by the Kookaburras and Hockeyroos. We are excited about the continued success of our collaboration.”
Proudly operating since 1979, East Coast Car Rentals prides itself on providing value for money to customers by offering quality vehicles at the lowest possible rates.
