It looks like a busy off season for the Suns on the Sponsors front.

Major sponsor Hostplus' deal has now expired as has Xblades as the manufacturer.

At the present stage there has been no contract extension 'announced'.

Hostplus has been the sponsor of the Suns since their inception so it would be sad to see them go.

In regards to the manufacturer, if there was to be a replacement I wouldn't mind seeing ISC, Majestic Athletic or even Puma as the jumper manufacturer.

Griffith University was announced as a Suns sponsor two weeks ago but didnt say anything regarding jumper sponsor info so maybe they might jump on board as the major sponsor and it just wasnt announced because there was still a match to go?

Have we partnered with an Aussie kit supplier that hasn't gone under yet?

If we can't secure a deal with the big dogs like Nike or Adidas, I'm still on board with us going with Under Armour as they try and get a foothold in the country but I think we've missed the window with that unfortunately, It would definerly but a bigger step up than XBlades

Sidenote: Since when did X-Blade do jumpers? They're boots were starting to get super popular when I was playing junior footy but didn't hear a peep from them since we announced they were going to do our jumper, Thoughts?

It looks highly likely that the Suns will be partnering with ISC next season.
Very strange, given ISC has dropped a lot of clubs so I just assumed ISC was moving away from AFL. ISC merchandise is no longer on the shops of some clubs.

But if this is true, I don't mind it. I have a couple ISC guernseys and a jumper.

Well I was half right, Essendon have signed with them.

Oh well, One day maybe...

Surely the solid win last night all be it a practice match might lead us to finding that last sponsor to go below the collar!! It looks very amateur without one.

I wasn't a fan of it when i saw it on draft night, but during the game i was fine with it.

We are kitted by ISC so you would think they would just have to upgrade their side of the deal

I wouldn't mind Tobin and Boswell discussing role of sponsorship within a club.
Does our difficulty securing sponsorship have any direct player impacts? Might be hard to appreciate the differences between us and a Collingwood for example if they haven't spent time in those clubs.
