2012 YEAR IN REVIEW AND SPONSOR OPPORTUNITY SEASON 2013

2012 YEAR IN REVIEW AND SPONSOR OPPORTUNITY SEASON 2013

 

Dear Lions Supporter,

                                                       

What a year it has been with many successful adventures for the Townsville City Lions AFL Club. With a hard working committee we have achieved a massive amount of work that has enhanced the club’s standing in both the AFL and the wider community as a whole, these being:

 

  • Coordination and participation in the annual Pre-season “Blitz” competition
  • Conducted fund raising for the World’s Greatest Shave with over $1000 being raised.
  • Grown a positive Club image within the Townsville region
  • Increased our team commitment from only fielding a Reserve grade side to include Seniors in the AFL Townsville competition in the 2012 season
  • Developed our home ground at Harold Phillips Oval to enable the first seniors games to be played there in 2012
  • Upgraded the lighting at Harold Phillips Oval allowing us to both extend our training sessions and gain experience training under lights
  • Purchased quality training, ground marking and game day equipment
  • Purchased quality canteen equipment and refined the process to run both the Bar and Canteen at our home games
  • Enhanced the working relationship with our Juniors that enabled them to play some senior games in the 2012 season
  • Developed a Strategic Business Plan
  • Increased a registered player base from 45 to over 125

 

First we would like to thank our much valued 2012 sponsors as without them we would not be able to complete the year. As a non-profit organisation we rely heavily on community support to build a financial foundation, that has enabled us to compete in the 2012 season with both Reserve and Senior grade sides. Our season 2012 sponsors were:

 

  • Pacific Services Group (PSG) – Major Sponsor
  • Cunneen Contractors – Jersey Sponsor
  • Northern Switchboard Solutions – Shorts Sponsor
  • Affordable Security – Shorts Sponsor
  • Bellevue Hotel – Support Staff Sponsor
  • C&M Solutions – Club Polo Sponsor
  • NQX Freight System – Club Polo Sponsor
  • Townsville RSL – Bronze
  • Angelina’s Fine Food – Bronze
  • Euphoria Hair and Beauty – Training Top Sponsor
  • AMART All Sports – Training Top Sponsor
  • Sherriff Electrical Wholesalers – Training Top Sponsor
  • Currajong Tyre and Auto – Training Top Sponsor
