SANFL Announces New Partnership with AAMI

SANFL is pleased to announce a new partnership with leading national insurer AAMI in support of local grassroots South Australian football clubs.

AAMI – a new Premier Partner with SANFL – will get behind the continuation of the State League rookies program (AAMI Rookies) whereby community football clubs are rewarded for fostering talent.

The AAMI Rookies program in 2020 will recognise every Statewide Super League debutant from SA, with their community football club receiving $500 thanks to AAMI.

SANFL CEO Jake Parkinson said the league had a longstanding association with AAMI and SANFL was delighted to be forging a new partnership in 2020.

“AAMI is synonymous with football and footy fans in South Australia with our former home of football, AAMI Stadium, becoming a household name for more than a decade,” Mr Parkinson said.

“AAMI is a strong supporter of our game nationally for both men and women and we are pleased to welcome them as a local Premier Partner at a grassroots community football and State League level.”

AAMI’s Executive Manager for South Australia CTP Allicia Tsiolis said:

“AAMI is proud to support the local men’s and women’s State League competitions, with a focus on grassroots footy.”

“Supporting South Australia is really important for AAMI, whether it be sport, arts or road safety.  We have more than 500 people based in Adelaide and a million policies with SA customers who insure their cars, homes and businesses with us, as well as take out compulsory third party (CTP) insurance cover.   

“This year has already been incredibly challenging for many South Australians, but we’re committed to continuing to back the State and our new partnership with SANFL will help us build an even stronger presence here.”

AAMI, part of the Suncorp Group, is one of Australia’s leading insurers.
