Caltex named as Co-Major Partner of the Brisbane Lions

Caltex has announced it has signed on as the new Co-Major Partner of the Brisbane Lions for at least the next two years.

To celebrate the new partnership, Caltex hit the road with new star midfielder Josh Dunkley, to win the hearts of footy fans in Queensland by giving away five free tanks of fuel to unsuspecting drivers at Caltex’s new service station at Crestmead in Brisbane.

Dunkley, who will wear the number five jersey for the Brisbane Lions, took the opportunity to speak to the media about the partnership and his new place on the team.

 “It’s fantastic to have a brand like Caltex on board with the Club, and a special feeling to be joining the Lions together at the same time as the Lions enter a new era,” he said.

“I am really focused on becoming a big game player for the Lions in 2023 and really add to the great list the Club has put together of experienced and emerging talent.

“The boys are working hard this pre-season at our new facility (Brighton Homes Arena in Springfield Central) I can’t wait to take the field representing this great Club, Caltex and all of our partners.”

Caltex, a global brand owned by Chevron, has a long and proud history in Australia. Chevron Australia Downstream General Manager, Lorne Chambers, said it was exciting to partner Caltex with the Brisbane Lions as they look to build on their 2022 success.

“The Lions are an integral part of the Brisbane community and much like the Club we have big growth plans for the Caltex brand in 2023,” Chambers said.

“I look forward to an exciting and successful relationship that brings together two great brands in the Lions and Caltex.”

Brisbane Lions Chairman, Andrew Wellington, said the partnership was important for both Caltex and the Lions, and opens the door for potential future opportunities.

“We are delighted to have the Caltex brand joining the Brisbane Lions at a pivotal time for the Club, as we continue to evolve on and off the field,” he said.

“A Co-Major Partner plays such an important role for any Club, and we look forward to working closely with Caltex for at least the next few years.”
