The Hungry Jack’s National Basketball League (NBL) is pleased to announce it has extended its partnership with one of Australia’s favourite retailers Kmart Australia until 2022.
The new agreement will see GAMETIME by Kmart continue for a third consecutive year to deliver a wide ranging community program to schools across Australia and New Zealand.
More than 100,000 children have participated in the program each year since its inception with NBL players from nine clubs playing a key role in delivering the educational basketball activities.
Kmart Australia’s Head of Community Kate Thiedeman said: “We are so proud to be delivering GAMETIME by Kmart to schools across the country for a third year.
“It is a fantastic opportunity to inspire families and children to get active, whilst receiving insightful skills and knowledge from some of the world’s best athletes.
“We look forward to having the program continuing to grow and provide children a potential pathway to their wellbeing.”
In a further a commitment to the joint venture, the partnership will see Kmart continue to deliver on its in-house design credentials and range of NBL styles that expand into men’s, kids and general merchandise.
The range reinforces Kmart’s low price offering in making stylish streetwear accessible to everyone. Kmart’s NBL range is currently available in stores across Australia and New Zealand and online, with new styles being launched in their October apparel catalogue.
NBL Chief Commercial Office Brad Joyner said: “We are delighted Kmart has extended its partnership with the NBL. Families are a vital part of our fan base and we are thrilled we can deliver them benefits through our Kmart Australia partnership.
“There’s never been a more exciting time for basketball in Australia and New Zealand and we want to continue to grow the game across the community and leave a lasting legacy for generations to come.”
The Hungry Jack’s NBL Season will tip off on October 3 when Melbourne United plays new crosstown rival South East Melbourne Phoenix in the first ever ‘Throwdown’ at Melbourne Arena. You can watch the 2019/20 Hungry Jack’s NBL Season on SBS VICELAND, SBS On Demand, ESPN and SKY Sport.
