The TAC have partnered with the Renegades since the club’s inception and will continue to be the WBBL squad’s Principal Partner with the Towards Zero logo displayed on the back of the playing shirt.
The Renegades will continue to work closely with the TAC on the Towards Zero campaign which aims to create a future where no one dies or is seriously injured on our roads.
The partnership will also see the TAC become the club’s BBL Community partner and Match Day partner for the double header in Geelong when the Renegades host the Sydney Sixers at GMHBA Stadium on January 3 2018.
"Towards Zero is about all Victorians working as a team, making good decisions and looking out for each other every time we're on the roads," Guy Britt, the TAC's Head of Engagement said.
"We're excited to be back working with the Melbourne Renegades this season and we're confident this will help us engage with cricket fans across the state."
carsales will continue their association with the club as the co-major partner for the Renegades WBBL team and feature prominently on playing and training apparel.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be working with the WBBL and Melbourne Renegades,” The Chief Marketing Officer for carsales.com Limited, Kellie Cordner said.
“The interest in women’s sport is growing rapidly and we look forward to help increase awareness and interest in women’s cricket with the Renegades.
“This was an extremely popular and rewarding sponsorship for us last year and we look forward to taking the partnership even further this year with the Renegades Women’s team.”
Melbourne Renegades Chief Executive Stuart Coventry said the retention of two key partners highlighted the growth and appeal of the franchise.
“The continued support from carsales and the TAC is a great sign of the confidence our partners have in our club’s values and the BBL product as a whole,” Coventry said.
“We’re really pleased with what we’ve achieved so far, but we’re also very excited about the growth we can achieve this season working with both brands.
“The TAC’s Towards Zero campaign holds special significance for us. Cricket and family holidays are an intrinsic part of the country’s summer landscape, so our sport has an important role to play in promoting road safety.
“Like many Victorians, we’ll be making the journey down to the surf coast this summer so it’s a great opportunity to align the Renegades and TAC’s goals.”
There was further good news for the Renegades with the WBBL team securing current VicSpirit player Rhiann O’Donnell ahead of next month’s season opener in Sydney.
The 19-year-old has progressed through Victoria’s high performance pathway and her signature leaves the Renegades with one spot on the playing list to fill before the season gets underway.
