Naming Rights Partner – Fortescue Metals Group
Gold Partner of the Kookaburras and Hockeyroos
Fortescue Metals Group is the world’s fourth largest producer of iron ore. Having started as a vision just over a decade ago, Fortescue has now completed the US$9.2 billion expansion of its port, rail and mining operations in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, bringing the company another step closer to its aim of being the safest, lowest cost, most profitable iron ore producer. Fortescue’s relationship with hockey began in June 2011 when the company partnered with Hockey Australia on the National Indigenous Program. In May 2012, Fortescue became the Kookaburras’ first corporate sponsor with the initial sponsorship agreement extended in October 2014.
Naming Rights – National Indigenous Program
Fortescue Metals Group and Hockey Australia have partnered to form the National Indigenous Program that strives to improve the overall health and wellbeing of children living in the remote indigenous community of Roebourne, Western Australia. In July 2011, Fortescue and Hockey Australia launched its inaugural hockey clinic that connects high-performance athletes with Roebourne school students through classroom and sporting activities. The hockey clinic aims to provide a solid foundation for improved health and life skills, to promote positive behavioural change and inspire a can-do attitude within its students. The program continues to be a great success, delivering tangible benefits to the community, including improved school attendance.
