Port Melbourne jumper sponsor 2016

I'm not sure of the circumstances, but heard that the Atlas Truck Rentals sponsor on the back of the jumper isn't going ahead this year.

The club is looking for a new company to take the spot. Does anyone know if one has been firmed up?

Massive opportunity for some business or organisation out there. There are some huge international companies in the Port Melbourne/Fishermans Bend area. It'd be great to see one of them get on board.

I agree with you however the feedback from businesses in the local area is that they don't want to be involved due to the reputation of the fans / club. Unwarranted and perhaps used as a excuse to not help. The club has relied on local business support from its beginnings however we have lost a few good ones in recent years such as Teac and Matilda Bay. Having said that their are plenty of big businesses in the local area such as Fastway, Kraft foods etc etc

The problem that the VFA and now the VFL(SIC) have is National and multinational companies are not interested in paying money for local comps
All the decent sponsers are already snapped up by the AFL and its clubs So good luck getting any big fish on board

Just look at the VFL itself its only got Peter Jackson a menswear retailer will 23 of its stores in Victoria and a handful in some other states not a true national brand.
