Melbourne City FC partners with Workplace Law

Melbourne City FC is pleased to welcome Workplace Law, who are set to join the Club as an exclusive partner of our A-League Women’s team for the 2023/24 season.

Established in 2003, Workplace Law is an Australian leader in providing advice to employers in all aspects of employment law, WHS, workplace behaviour and industrial relations. Workplace Law also advises sporting leagues, associations and Clubs from community to national levels.

Passionate about the growth and development of the Women’s game in Australia, the Workplace Law logo will appear on the back of our A-League Women’s training top for the duration of the season.

Workplace Law Director and CEO, Shane Koelmeyer, said:

“We believe the recent Women’s World Cup is a call to action for those of us who love football to do whatever we can to create an ongoing atmosphere of positivity around this beautiful game.

“We should be focused on all that is wonderful about football and make sure it attains its rightful place in the Australian sports landscape.”

Workplace Law Managing Director and Principal, Athena Koelmeyer, said:

“Our firm has always believed that sporting clubs that do the right thing when it comes to building professional pathways for female athletes deserve strong corporate support.

“Melbourne City, as part of the City Football Group, have proven their commitment to providing female footballers with the first-class resources and playing opportunities, domestically and overseas, that are necessary for players to become genuinely professional.

“Our shared organisational values and standards made this partnership a perfect fit and we are delighted to be joining the Melbourne City family.”

Melbourne City FC CEO, Brad Rowse, said:

“We’re delighted to have Workplace Law partner with the Club and our A-League Women’s team ahead of the 2023/24 season.

“Melbourne City has a long-standing history of supporting the Women’s game in Australia as evident by our sustained on-field success at A-Leagues level and no fewer than 10 former City players representing our country for the Matildas at the recent FIFA Women’s World Cup.

“We’re delighted to have a partner on board who shares our values and dedication towards providing the best platform for our Women’s team. We welcome the team on board, and we look forward to working closely together.”
