Just days after committing to Georgia Nanscawen as its historic first AFLW player, the Essendon Football Club is delighted to announce Fujitsu General Australia as a co-major partner of its AFLW program.

After nine years as a co-major partner of the Bombers’ AFL program, Fujitsu General Australia will see its partnership extend to the AFLW program as the Bombers prepare for their entry into the national competition at the end of 2022.

Voted the nation’s most trusted brand in the air conditioning category for four years in a row, Fujitsu is a leading supplier of air conditioning products in Australia.

In late 2021, Fujitsu General Australia extended its major partnership with the Bombers for a further four years, taking the loyal partnership to 12 consecutive years.

Chief executive officer Xavier Campbell said the club was delighted to strengthen its partnership with Fujitsu General Australia through the Bombers’ historic AFLW program.

“We are incredibly proud of the strength of the partnership between the Essendon Football Club and Fujitsu General Australia, and our further strengthening of ties to extend to our incoming AFLW program is another example of that,” Campbell said.

“Signing Fujitsu General Australia is a wonderful progression for our club’s women’s program, and to be partnering with an organisation who have a shared vision to support and promote grassroots, community and female football programs is significant.

“There is no doubt we are entering a momentous period as our club becomes truly whole with the upcoming inception of our national women’s team, and we wish to thank managing director Philip Perham and his team at Fujitsu General Australia for their continued support of the Essendon Football Club.”

Fujitsu director of sales, marketing and product Dave Smith said Fujitsu General Australia was delighted to broaden its partnership with the Bombers.

"Fujitsu General is proud to come on board as the inaugural co-major partner of the Essendon AFLW team. Fujitsu General has been looking forward to this day since it first signed on as the Essendon VFLW co-major partner in their inaugural year,” Smith said.

“We are excited to be part of this history-making era in AFL and women’s sport, and in the evolution of the Essendon Football Club.”
