AVJennings has extended its association with the Saints for another 2 seasons, committing to the long-running partnership until at least the end of 2023.

The Australian-grown community developer will be featured on the club’s polo sleeves for both the AFL and AFLW players, as well as on all St Kilda training footballs.

AVJennings’ much-loved mini Sherrin giveaways will also continue as part of the renewed partnership.

“We’re thrilled to have AVJennings on board and have them with us for at least another two seasons,” St Kilda General Manager of Commercial Chris Larkins said.

AVJennings have been staunch partners of ours since 2016 and have held numerous positions across both our men’s and women’s teams. Their support, particularly over the past two seasons, has been invaluable.

“We’re proud to be aligned with AVJennings’ vision of belonging and building a positive future, and we look forward to seeing that develop further in the coming years.”

AVJennings’ Sandra Vogiatzakis said the organisation was pleased to continue its partnership with the Saints.

“It’s incredibly special for us to continue our association with the St Kilda Football Club, During our time as partners we have seen the Club’s commitment to the community values we hold strong at AVJennings.

"Such areas as the growth of, and commitment to, women’s football; the way the Pride match has positively impacted on so many who had previously felt negatively about attending football; and the focus on mental health, so strongly represented in the soon to be opened Danny Frawley Centre are examples of initiatives which align with the values of AVJennings.

“The partnership has also allowed us to tap into the Saints enormous resources around everything from strategy, resilience, nutrition and other aspects of high performance to allow our employees to grow personally and professionally.

"The Club have been excellent at engaging with us to allow AVJennings to achieve our aims from the partnership.”

In conjunction with St Kilda, AVJennings will also serve as official ball sponsor of the Southern Football Netball League (SFNL).
