Hockey Australia Partners with Legacy Lighting

Hockey Australia has announced a commercial partnership with Legacy Lighting, an Australian company specialising in LED flood lighting as well as heavy duty sport facility and stadium lighting.

Hockey Australia CEO, Matt Favier, said Hockey Australia is excited to work with Legacy Lighting to empower community sporting clubs and build brand awareness.

“We’re thrilled to partner with another Australian company, and we look forward to building and growing our relationship with them,” Favier said.

“Legacy Lighting have a great business that has been built steadily over recent times.

“Stadium lighting is a relatively new area, but they are a trusted brand in the lighting industry.

“A big part of what we are trying to do is raise awareness of our sport in the community, similarly to Legacy Lighting in their market, and we are confident we can help them do that.

“The values around participation, community sport and achieving high performance are really aligned in our businesses so we’re proud to work with a company who shares those values and also that is proudly Australian.

“In these current times this partnership really talks to the opportunity that still presents itself if you’ve got a quality partner and opportunity, and that’s very much the case here,” he said.

Legacy Lighting general manager, Brett Tunley, acknowledged the partnership as a great opportunity to be aligned with a highly reputable and world class performing national sporting organisation.

“With Hockey Australia’s heritage of success we thought it was a great brand to be involved with,” Tunley said.

“Tying in with the high-performance aspect of Hockey Australia, it works really well with us being an Australian made product and also focussing on high performance within the industry, so I think there was a great synergy from the start.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for us and Australian manufacturing.

“Hockey Australia is putting their confidence in an Australian manufacturer and we are putting our confidence in them so it’s very much reciprocal.

“There are a lot of state governments who are being supportive of community sporting clubs.

“We see infrastructure being built up over the next few years and we think the partnership with Hockey Australia will give us a good springboard for that,” he said.
