The Brisbane Lions have hit the track this pre-season fueled up for a huge 2023 campaign with the help of the Club’s new Co-Major Partner, Caltex.
In an off-season full of exciting key signings for the Lions, Caltex is All In with the Club for at least the next two years.
Together with fellow star signing, Josh Dunkley, they’ve already started winning over the hearts of footy fans in Queensland – delivering a surprise and delight to celebrate the lead up to their debut season with the Lions.
The midfielder, who will wear guernsey number five, gave a full tank of free fuel to five unexpecting drivers at Caltex’s new service station at Crestmead on Brisbane’s south on Thursday.
After finishing his handy work on the bowsers, Dunkley spoke to the media in person for the first time as a Brisbane Lion.
“It’s fantastic to have a brand like Caltex on board with the Club, and a special feeling to be joining the Lions together at the same time as the Lions enter a new era,” Dunkley said.
“I am really focused on becoming a big game player for the Lions in 2023 and really add to the great list the Club has put together of experienced and emerging talent.
“The boys are working hard this pre-season at our new facility (Brighton Homes Arena in Springfield Central) I can’t wait to take the field representing this great Club, Caltex and all of our partners.”
Caltex, a global brand owned by Chevron – one of the world’s leading integrated energy companies, has a long and proud history in Australia.
Chevron Australia Downstream General Manager, Lorne Chambers, said it was exciting to partner Caltex with the Brisbane Lions as they look to build on their 2022 success.
“The Lions are an integral part of the Brisbane community and much like the Club we have big growth plans for the Caltex brand in 2023,” Chambers said.
“I look forward to an exciting and successful relationship that brings together two great brands in the Lions and Caltex.”
Brisbane Lions Chairman, Andrew Wellington, said the partnership was important for both Caltex and the Lions, and opens the door for potential future opportunities.
“We are delighted to have the Caltex brand joining the Brisbane Lions at a pivotal time for the Club, as we continue to evolve on and off the field,” he said.
“A Co-Major Partner plays such an important role for any Club, and we look forward to working closely with Caltex for at least the next few years.”
The Caltex brand will feature on the front of the home guernsey and back of the away guernsey, as well as appearing on all official on-field apparel.
