ŠKODA is gearing up to make AFL history this Saturday, 26th May when it welcomes Greater Western Sydney Giants into their new home, ŠKODA Stadium, as they take on the Essendon Bombers.

In doing so, ŠKODA will become the first automotive brand in history to have its name associated with an AFL stadium, in addition to being the major co-partner of the team.

The Stadium, which has undergone a $65million redevelopment programme in preparation for the inaugural match, benefits from increased seating capacity to 25,000, new grandstands and one of the largest high definition video scoreboards in the southern hemisphere at 269m2.

The revamp also includes upgrades to facilities for fans, as well as upgrading the light towers to deliver broadcast quality lighting to the playing field.

ŠKODA Director, Matthew Wiesner, commented: “We’re incredibly excited to kick off our sponsorship of ŠKODA Stadium by welcoming the Giants to their new home.”

“ŠKODA and the GWS Giants may be young brands in Australia, but the same core values run through our veins. We may not have been around as long as our rivals, but we know with strength and dedication we’ll grow together and challenge the established names in our fields. We’re proud to support the Giants and look forward to a successful relationship for the years to come. GO THE GIANTS!”
