Magpies confirm McCarthy Homes as Major Sponsor until 2020
As the Western Magpies QAFL squad embark on their final training run for 2017 this evening, they will also be having their first outing at the newly named McCarthy Homes Oval, after the club announced a new three year partnership with the proudly Brisbane based and family owned custom home builder.
Looking ahead to 2018, its an exciting time at McCarthy Homes Oval with solid turnouts on the training track for the QAFL Squad, some key player and coach signings as well key appointments being made to bolster the Sherwood Magpies Junior Football program.
Club President Andrew Thomson was excited at the strong values alignment between the Magpies and McCarthy Homes.
“I was really excited when I first spoke with McCarthy Homes about the possibility of coming on board as a key community partner, as I’ve worked in the development game for close to 15 years now and in that time I’ve had some dealings with their business and their brand that have been nothing but positive," commented Thomson.
"As a longstanding and privately owned home builder, they are certainly at the top of their game in that space and local residents in the area would no doubt already have seen a number of their beautiful custom designed homes popping up in the Indooroopilly to Oxley corridor,” said Thomson.
Nick O’Sullivan, Director of McCarthy Homes said, “We’ve been building homes in the Chelmer, Graceville and Sherwood area fairly consistently in the last few years and as a result, we have committed to building a new display home in on the corner of Oxley Road and Borden St in Sherwood, due for completion in Spring 2018. As part of our commitment to the area, we wanted to involve ourselves in the community and as a result we decided to get in touch with the premier community facility in the area, being the Sherwood Football Club. The club was extremely professional and pro-active to deal with and we are delighted to sign on as the naming rights partner for an initial 3 year term.”
Thomson added, “After initial discussions it became obvious that our organisations would have clear alignment in terms of basic community values, open communication and being leading organisations in our respective fields – so I knew pretty early on we would be able to secure a strong partnership. Getting them on board for a three year partnership as the naming rights sponsor was a substantial bonus for us as a club and really shows the commitment to the area McCarthy will have. It certainly didn’t hurt that their corporate colours are black and white either!”
