About the sponsorship
QBE signed on as joint principal sponsor of the NSW Swifts back in 2008 when we became the first major partner to invest in a netball partnership. In 2018, we were incredibly proud to mark the tenth year as principal partner of the NSW Swifts.
The NSW Swifts have grown into a revered sporting brand, breaking both membership and home crowd attendance records over a number of seasons. The team has accrued five premiership wins, including four Commonwealth Bank Trophy titles and an ANZ Championship win.
In 2018, we expanded our partnership to support both the New South Wales State Age and State Championships competitions. We're proud to support up and coming talent early in their athletic journeys.
QBE Swifts Academy launched to support next generation of athletes
QBE has extended its support to the next generation of athletes through the establishment of the QBE Swifts Academy, launched in partnership with the NSW Swifts in 2019 and backed by Netball NSW.
The Academy provides an elite talent pathway for aspiring netballers across the state through exposure to a daily training environment and coaching excellence at one of the sport’s most celebrated clubs.
Up to 20 promising athletes will join the QBE Swifts Academy in its inaugural season, which will commence later this year.
