Melbourne City FC is pleased to welcome Origin Energy as its newest partner ahead of the 2021-22 Isuzu UTE A-League season.

As part of the new three-year partnership, Origin will support Melbourne City in reducing the carbon footprint of the Club’s new home, the City Football Academy in South-East Melbourne.
