    Vodafone will not be renewing their sponsorship after this year, per the Sunday Mail.

    They are pulling out of all AFL sponsorships, Brisbane, Port Adelaide, North Melbourne and West Coast.

    Supposedly a combination of the global financial crisis and also difficulties and conflicts arising from the AFL's major partnership with Telstra.

    We'll find someone. We aren't the Demons.

    Wouldn't surprise me if we had someone lined up already, we wont hear anything until Vodafone's sponsorship expires.

    Re: Sponsor Watch.

    Can't find a link, but the article did say that Vodaphone had advised the Lions of this some time ago. So it would be safe to say we have been on the hunt for a while.

    Betting agencies will most likely be lining up as the AFL has just relaxed those rules, but there are 4 teams at least looking for a sponsor now.

    Wonder if the blue on the jumper can now be moved back to it's original position:eek:

    I think Vodaphone has pulled out of sponsorship as they merged with Hutchison Telecoms (which is 3) some time ago, information here: http://www.vodafone.com.au/stelprd/groups/webcontent/documents/webcontent/merger.pdf

    That would be a Puma thing CtD. The club must talk to Puma about it. I like the blue higher up too and having more maroon on the jumper. The maroon is an important part of the jumper as we are a Queensland team and it is the state colour. Add more maroon to the jumper (as it once was) before the Gold Coast comes in I'd say. Queenslander through and through.

    You can not seriously be telling me that Puma decide how much blue is in the jumper:eek:

    Vodafone will only have Mclaren Mercedes, NZ Warriors & there was another reported in the paper. Can't remember who maybe the v8 supercar team? but thye will be pulling most sponsorship around the world and will no longer sponsor the English cricket team after an 11 year partnership

    I believe they are pulling out of Man Utd. We are just petty cash to them - a corporate decision.

    Vodafone's major Lions sponsorship enters final season

    Pat Cunningham, Head of Sponsorship at Vodafone Australia, said: “Vodafone has enjoyed a high-profile association with the Brisbane Lions and we wish the Club continued success. Vodafone’s partnership with the Lions has delivered strong results in Queensland. However, we’re now looking to diversify our sponsorship portfolio into new areas, with a stronger interest in music.”

    http://www.lions.com.au/news/newsarticle/tabid/5085/newsid/72725/default.aspx

    I heard that Vodaphone were moving more into the area of music as in music downloads to their phones, etc. I wonder if they will try and buy record labels/companies so they can have exclusive rights to that music and how it's distributed, although I have no idea how it all works.

    Anyway, it looks like we're are shopping around for a new sponsor and that's very exciting.

    I saw in another thread where Brisbanelioness said the Coca-cola was now a sponsor. :confused:

    Yeah, apparently this sponsorship is in transition.

    It's been a long time since Coca Cola was a sponsor.

    I expect the Gatorade will be replaced with Powerade. Some of the boys are going to suffer from withdrawal! ;)

    Coca Cola Amatil is not the brand Mr Bowers. Coca Cola is the brand.

    CCA manufactures/bottles under licence.
