THE Port Adelaide Football Club is honoured to welcome Renault as a new joint major partner under a multi-year deal connecting one of the world’s largest car manufacturers with one of Australia’s most successful sporting organisations.

The sponsorship – announced today on football’s greatest stage, the MCG - also marks Renault’s return to the AFL and demonstrates its confidence in the ambitious club, while building on the company’s established commitment to Australia’s sporting and cultural landscape.

Port Adelaide Chairman David Koch said the club was thrilled to partner with Renault and honoured to wear such a long-established and internationally respected automotive brand on its guernsey.

“Renault is an established global company with a long history in Australia, including success in Australian motorsport, and Port Adelaide could not be prouder of this partnership,” Mr Koch said.

“With Renault joining us as a joint major partner, we have taken a very significant step in our strategic drive to broaden Port Adelaide’s brand and make ourselves a bigger player in the national market.

“We are very grateful for the support Renault has extended to Port Adelaide and the belief it has shown in our future.”

Renault has joined the club, now it's your turn! Join by 15 March to guarantee your seat at Adelaide Oval in 2014.

Renault Australia Marketing Director Chris Bayman said: “We are delighted to be part of the Port Adelaide transformation, and hope we can grow together, as we continue to strengthen Renault in Australia and Port Adelaide follows its vision.

“Like Port Adelaide, we see ourselves as a ‘challenger’ brand, with a strong sense of fun, competitive spirit, determination to succeed, and a never-say-die attitude.

“We are confident this partnership will expose more people to Renault and our family of attainable passenger, sports and light commercials vehicles.”

The Renault name and logo will appear on the back of Port Adelaide’s home guernsey and the front of its away and clash strips, and will make its AFL debut on the MCG where Port Adelaide and Melbourne clash in Round 1 on Sunday 31 March.

Mr Koch said Renault’s slogan – “Drive The Change” – was highly appropriate for Port Adelaide.

“Renault is changing and becoming a stronger competitor in its market with every passing year with growth of over 250% in the last two years and that’s certainly a perfect fit at Port Adelaide where we are undergoing some of the most significant change in our own long and successful history,” Mr Koch said.

“We have a new board, new coaching staff, a lot of new players and we are only a year away from playing AFL games at a stunning new home ground in Adelaide Oval.

“Now we have a great new friend in Renault and to have the company as a driving force behind all of that change as a major sponsor is just wonderful for Port Adelaide.

“Port Adelaide was established in 1870 and Renault was founded in 1899 and while we have both been around for more than 100 years, we also share a great excitement for what the future holds.”

Renault has a long commitment to international motorsport, powering four Formula One Grand Prix teams in 2013, including Red Bull Racing of which Australian Mark Webber is a driver.

“Renault has a history of competition success, with 11 Formula 1 Constructors’ Championships, but we are also active locally in motorsport, launching the Swisse Renault Rally Team and the motoring.com.au Renault Sport Targa Team in the last week,” Mr Bayman said.

“We are also a proud sponsor of the Renault National Beach Volleyball Series, Mark Webber Tasmania Challenge, Flickerfest Short Film Festival, Bell Shakespeare and the Snowfields of Mount Hotham and Falls Creek.

“All Renault Partnerships reflect both our competitive spirit as well as our Joie de Vivre.”

Good work by Port. I wonder how much its really worth though? Still, having a multinational gives them some credibility

You all need to remember who the target market is.

How many Port supporters, or AFL supporters in general, would buy a Renault?

You'd have to have rocks in your heads to buy one.

$1.5 million

A joint major sponsor to be announced within the next couple weeks so between the 2 it would be a reasonable amount being received through major sponsors. Kochie and the rest of the behind the scenes team seem to be doing a lot of hard work to get this club back where it belongs

Lol. If Buddy was interested in money the last place he'd look at would be Port Adelaide.

Kochie would be stupid NOT to say they are keen on Buddy, but realistically, he wouldn't be in his Top 3 choices. Nothing to lose for Port to say that.

The sponsorship is in the right direction, now they just have to sign some decent players and get rid of the 'losing is acceptable' culture.

Which is exactly what will happen.

Pickering will use Freo to bump up Hawthorn's offer.

pickering is a smart agent, not sneaky due to his place in the media, but gets the best fair deal, i like the way he goes about it

nixon was all about him

i think he will stay too but the bidding war will be good to watch, just good to see port aiming high in the media, its a good approach

It will be similar to the Travis Cloke scenario.

everyone expected cloke to stay, they just knew he wanted that little bit more and a smart agent, like pickering, uses the media speculation

buddy will stay and prob end up the highest paid player at the hawks

Watched Kochie on AFL 360 and thought he was good. Able to joke, get Robbo uncomfortable if he went hard at him but hammered home is own point. He does give Port a breath of fresh air.
