Carlton Football Club is delighted to announce that existing partner, Virgin Australia, has become co-major partner of the Club for the remainder of 2017.
From today, the Virgin Australia logo will appear on all official Blues apparel including the front of the Carlton away guernsey and the back of the home guernsey.
Virgin Australia is one of this country’s most loved brands with a strong focus on being the airline of choice for corporate and leisure travelers. It has been a platinum partner of the Club since 2015.
Carlton President Mark LoGiudice praised Virgin Australia for the decision to increase its support of the Blues.
“Virgin Australia has been an extremely loyal partner of the Carlton Football Club for a number of years, and its decision to extend its partnership to co-major of our club once the opportunity presented itself is to be commended,” LoGiudice said.
“Virgin Australia is one of this country’s most recognisable brands and we are extremely fortunate to enjoy such a close working relationship with them. Virgin Australia’s commitment to our club reflects the strength of our connection, and we look forward to working with them even more closely into the future.”

“We are delighted to be extending our support of the Club and strengthening our commitment to AFL in this country.”
