Barry Plant scores Kewell with Victory sponsorship

Staff Reporter

The Barry Plant Group, recently announced sponsors of A-league football club Melbourne Victory, has welcomed the arrival of Australian football player Harry Kewell, who joined the side earlier this week.

The Victorian-based real estate agent group, which has 82 offices, recently signed a two-year sponsorship deal with Melbourne Victory.

Group director and CEO, Mike McCarthy, said the timing of the sponsorship announcement couldn’t have been better, with Kewell arriving at training at the same time Barry Plant was signing the deal.

“There are real synergies with the Melbourne Victory community and the Barry Plant community,” he said.

“The Victory membership base is very strong in the areas we have offices. The sponsorship allows us to bring the club to our communities.

Mike said Barry Plant had been speaking with Melbourne Victory for the past 12 months in a bid to come to an arrangement.

“There are real synergies with the Melbourne Victory community and the Barry Plant community,” Mike said.

“The Victory membership base is very strong in the areas we have offices. The sponsorship allows us to bring the club to our communities.

“With Victory, we will be holding four community clinics in our communities and we will also be managing Melbourne Victory player appearances over the next six months.

“Having the stars of Melbourne Victory meet and greet young fans in our communities was the major reason we wanted to strike the arrangement,” Mr McCarthy said.
