Collingwood is pleased to announce a new partnership with SHARP Extensive IT (“Sharp EIT”) as the official AFLW coaches’ partner for seasons 2022 and 2023.

With over 20 years’ experience, Sharp EIT is Australia’s leading software solutions supplier.

Backed by a team of highly skilled trade specialists, Sharp EIT offers expert advice and guidance around IT services and technology solutions, while also providing access to the latest office equipment including printers, laptops, managed IT services as well as interactive digital screens.

Sharp EIT’s Managing Director Mario Bernatovic said the partnership with Collingwood further cements Sharp EIT’s position as a leading supplier for sporting organisations.

“Sharp EIT has a long history of supporting local businesses and communities, and through our continued commitment to partnering with local sporting clubs we aim to share best of breed technology solutions that are cost-effective and, in turn, can help redirect funds where it’s needed most,” Bernatovic said.

“It’s been a tough couple of years for many clubs and businesses, and we believe Sharp EIT can help play a real role in equipping organisations with products that provide a competitive advantage.

“The collaboration with Collingwood means we can throw our support behind the women’s squad as an official partner, as well as kick start our bolstered efforts to expand our Melbourne service team on the ground and streamline our service offering to provide more comprehensive support to Victorian businesses.”

Collingwood CEO Mark Anderson said the club is thrilled to welcome Sharp EIT on board.  

“We’re very excited to have the support of Sharp EIT for the upcoming AFLW campaign,” Anderson said. 

“It’s great to have an industry-leading professional like Sharp EIT invest in our women’s football program and we know they’ll play a prominent role in the next phase of the club’s AFLW journey.”

Sharp EIT’s logo will feature on the Collingwood AFLW coaches’ apparel and on the back of the team’s home and away guernsey and shorts.

Sharp EIT will also be part of Collingwood’s key branding and match-day signage.
