Sunshine Coast Lightning has received a major boost a day out from its top of the table Suncorp Super Netball clash, with the Club securing two more premium business partners.

Sunshine Coast Airport will partner with the region’s first-ever professional sporting team competing on a national stage. As the region’s local airport, and the fastest growing airport in the country, Sunshine Coast Airport is excited to become part of the Sunshine Coast Lightning family.

Lightning has also linked with AVID Property Group, one of Australia’s most respected property developers. AVID has a portfolio covering 10 projects with an estimated end value of more than $3 billion. AVID is behind Palmview’s largest master-planned community, Harmony. Harmony, will be home to Queensland’s first grand linear park.

“There’s a great sense of anticipation with our new corporate partners. Our results on court show we are getting stronger, while off it, the Club is in a fantastic position with the backing of two more highly successful businesses,” Lightning CEO, Danielle Smith said.

In the last twelve months more than one million passengers utilised the flight services at Lightning’s home airport.

“The athletes and support staff appreciate the convenience of travelling in and out of Sunshine Coast Airport,” Smith said.

“With the Airport growing, more passengers can come to the Sunshine Coast for Super Netball games at USC Stadium as well as experiencing this incredible part of the world.”

“Sunshine Coast Airport is incredibly proud to be partnering with Sunshine Coast Lightning,” Airport General Manager, Peter Pallot said.

“The team are fantastic ambassadors for the region and we look forward to welcoming our team and the wonderful Lightning fans when they travel away from home.”

AVID Property Group General Manager Bruce Harper said AVID was thrilled to put its support behind Sunshine Coast Lightning – the Coast’s first national elite sporting team.

“AVID is very pleased to become a corporate partner for the team, and to extend our commitment to supporting not only local business, but local sporting clubs,” Mr Harper said.

“With Lightning’s home court at the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) only around the corner from Harmony – Palmview’s largest master-planned community, it’s a great synergy for AVID to get behind this fantastic team which is going from strength-to-strength.

GIANTS Netball athletes flew into Sunshine Coast Airport today for the Round 4 blockbuster at USC Stadium. The Sippy Downs’ showdown gets underway from 7:45pm AEST.
