Fujitsu General Australia has announced it is celebrating its 10-year partnership with the Essendon Football Club (the Bombers) with a AU$10,000 giveaway for local community football clubs.

To enter, participants must complete a form and explain in 25 words or less why their nominated local football club deserves the prize. The competition runs until 2 August 2024, with the winning club announced on 5 August 2024.

Phillip Perham, managing director, Fujitsu General Australia, said, “Fujitsu General is dedicated to forming partnerships with like-minded organisations across Australia. Our collaboration with Essendon over the last 10 years has let us broaden our reach, enhancing our commitment to grassroots programs and the club's diverse community initiatives. The collaboration with Essendon has been particularly rewarding, and we’re excited to celebrate the strength and success of our partnership with this community giveaway to further help and encourage Essendon’s proud and vibrant community.

“This competition aims to empower local football clubs by providing them with the resources needed to enhance their programs and facilities. By investing in grassroots football, Fujitsu and Essendon are helping to nurture the next generation of talent and promote the sport's growth at the community level.”

Craig Vozzo CEO of Essendon Football Club said, “This competition is a fantastic opportunity for local clubs to gain much-needed support. We are incredibly proud of our partnership with Fujitsu General Australia, which has been instrumental in our community engagement and development programs over the past decade. Fujitsu’s involvement with our club has not only supported our senior teams, but also our women’s programs, grassroots initiatives, and community outreach.

“Our partnership with Fujitsu General Australia has been more than just a sponsorship. It’s a collaboration that has strengthened the fabric of our club and the wider football community. Fujitsu General Australia’s commitment to the Bombers is unwavering, and we are excited to offer this giveaway to give back to the community and celebrate Fujitsu General’s ongoing support and dedication to fostering local talent and community spirit.”

Fujitsu General Australia became a co-major partner of the Essendon Football Club Bombers in 2013 and has since played a pivotal role in the club’s growth and success. For the last decade, Fujitsu General has been committed to supporting the Bombers through numerous campaigns and fan engagement activities, extending its support across both men's and women's programs. Importantly, the partnership extends to include the AFLW and VFLW teams, emphasizing Fujitsu General and Essendon’s shared dedication to empowering women through female football programs. Essendon’s grassroots, community, and women’s football programs have particularly benefited from this enduring relationship.

Over the years, Fujitsu General Australia has actively engaged with the Essendon Football Club network and supported events such as the Football Woman of the Year Award, further solidifying its role as a key partner in Essendon’s success. Essendon Football Club and Fujitsu General Australia look forward to continuing their successful partnership and making a positive impact on the football community for many more years to come.
