SkyBus joins Werribee as principal sponsor

The Werribee Football Club is pleased to announce Skybus, operator of Australasia’s premier airport transfer service, as a principal sponsor for season 2018.

The partnership comes as Werribee unveils its new-look Avalon Airport Oval and begins a new era as a standalone team in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Werribee CEO Mark Penaluna welcomed Skybus to the club.

“It is an exciting time for our club as we unveil new rooms, new players, and new partners like Skybus,” said Mr Penaluna.

“Skybus’ commitment to our club is in line with its dedication to providing the people of Wyndham with a world-class passenger service to and from Avalon Airport, and I think we can both look forward to a very productive 2018.”

Michael Sewards, co-CEO and director of SkyBus, said the strong community focus of both organisations made for an ideal partnership.

“We are excited to be a part of Werribee’s pursuit for on-field success in 2018. More to that, we were really attracted to the club’s active community role off field, which is very much in line with the SkyBus ethos,” said Mr Sewards.

“As part of our mission to give back to the community, we will support the club in its endeavours in schools, youth resource centres, charities, and community groups to name a few. We are motivated to work closely with Werribee FC to pursue a common goal.”

Werribee will play its first home game for 2018 on Saturday, April 14 under the lights at Avalon Airport Oval against the Casey Demons.
