After eight years together, the partnership between St Kilda Football Club and Pepper Money will finish at the end of October.

Since 2015, the Saints have paired with Australia’s favourite non-bank lender to serve St Kilda fans and the community more broadly.

This was particularly evident over the past two years, with Pepper Money holding the position of Co-Major Partner of the club’s community programs.

“It has been a pleasure to have Pepper Money on board, particularly for some ground-breaking moments in our community work,” St Kilda Chief Executive Office Simon Lethlean said.

Our partnership with Pepper Money was instrumental in the establishment and maintenance of our Blind and Wheelchair Teams, both of which have won premierships during Pepper Money’s tenure.

“Pepper Money was also steadfast in their support throughout the pandemic impacted years, which we’ll forever be grateful for.

“We thank CEO Mario Rehayem, General Manager Marketing and Brand Sarah Pikardt, Head of Brand and Sponsorship David Berry and their teams for their partnership and support over the past eight years.”

Pepper Money CEO Mario Rehayem echoed Lethlean’s sentiments.

“We’re extremely proud of what we have achieved together with the Saints over the past eight years – particularly the Real-Life Moments and Real-Life Fund programs which changed people’s lives and brought people together throughout the Saints community.

“We wish the Saints well in the future and will be cheering for all their teams in the years ahead. We would like to thank the staff and players for their commitment to this partnership and the fans for allowing us to join them in supporting their beloved Saints.”
