Buffaloes Football Club President, John Paterson said he was thrilled to announce that Australian Rural Exports Pty Ltd (AUSTREX) was the major sponsor for the Buffaloes Australian Rules women’s league side, the women’s youth side and the Buffaloes netball side.
“It is a major coup for the Buffaloes Football Club, and especially our women’s teams, to have secured a major sponsor like AUSTREX. AUSTREX is one of Australia’s leading exporters of live cattle to destinations across the globe and has offices throughout the world, including Darwin, said Mr Paterson.
“Having AUSTREX as major sponsor for our women’s teams will provide us with funding certainty this season and will allow us to maintain and strengthen our women’s teams in the Darwin competitions. AUSTREX has demonstrated not only a strong commitment to the Buffaloes Football Club, but to our women in particular”, said Mr Paterson.
Mr Justin Slaughter, CEO of AUSTREX, stated that, “AUSTREX was also thrilled to be able to provide a solid financial backing for the Buffaloes Football Club women’s teams. AUSTREX was particularly proud to be involved in assisting to improve Indigenous women’s health and well-being”.
”My role in, and promotion of, Indigenous health is well known and to see a major company like AUSTREX make such a major commitment in this area is extremely pleasing and I can only hope that other companies stand up and make similar commitments to the benefit of Indigenous women’s health and well-being”, said Mr Paterson.
