Georges River Council has secured a new naming rights partner for Jubilee Stadium with property management company Netstrata agreeing to back the Sydney venue.
Jubilee Stadium has been without a naming rights sponsor since 2017, when a contract with the University of Wollongong ended. The council-owned venue will now adopt the name ‘Netstrata Jubilee Stadium’ for a term of three years. The announcement follows an Expression of Interest process and a decision by Council in December for naming rights at the stadium.
Georges River Council Mayor, Kevin Greene, said: “I am delighted to announce Netstrata, a locally-based company with a strong history in the Georges River area, as the naming rights sponsor of Netstrata Jubilee Stadium.
“Netstrata enters into the partnership at an exciting time for the stadium as its profile continues to increase, becoming a sought-after venue for professional football clubs and elite training.”
Netstrata Jubilee Stadium will host an A-League football game on Sunday when Sydney FC takes on Melbourne City. Sydney FC will also play three Asian Champions League home games at the venue, commencing on March 6.
The facility will stage its first-ever international football matches by hosting a double-header in the women’s Cup of Nations on February 28. NRL rugby league will take to the 20,500-capacity stadium on March 21 when the St George Illawarra Dragons take on the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
Stephen Brell, managing director of Netstrata, said: “Jubilee Stadium has been the focal point for major sports and entertainment in the St George area for more than 80 years. Just about everyone in southern Sydney has a fondness for the venue and great memories of attending an event there.
“Netstrata is also proud to have been part of the St George community from our first day in 1996, and we plan on being here a lot longer. That’s why this partnership is such a natural fit for our business.”
