The Melbourne Rebels have today announced that ICS Service Solutions have re-signed with the club for a further two years in an upgraded partnership.
The new deal will see them continue to feature on the Melbourne Rebels jersey but also take on the naming rights for the Rebels Headquarters at AAMI Park which will now be referred to as the “ICS Service Solutions High Performance Centre.”
The ICS Service Solutions High Performance Centre was unveiled at a special launch event involving ICS Service Solutions Chairman Tim Austin and Melbourne Rebels CEO Baden Stephenson.
New ICS Service Solution signage now features prominently at the entrance to the Rebels headquarters as well as inside the building in the team’s High Performance area.
The Melbourne based Services Solutions company specialises in commercial cleaning with contracts spanning across Government agencies and Universities. ICS Service Solutions will also be the exclusive Cleaning and Facility Management Partner for season 2021 and 2022.
ICS Services Solutions Chairman Tim Austin said, “We are extremely excited to extend our partnership with the Melbourne Rebels for another two years, taking our support of this club to the five year mark. In light of the new broadcasting format we are hoping for greater attention on the conference and shedding some light on pathways for local club rugby. Getting as many kids playing rugby would be good news for the sport and for Rebels. In these uncertain times we are proud that our work in managing the Cleaning for the new ICS Service Solutions High Performance Centre will ensure that the team can prepare and remain in the most safe, secure and hygienic environment possible.”
Melbourne Rebels CEO Baden Stephenson said, “Tim and the team at ICS Service Solutions have been incredible partners of our club and we are very excited to have them not only renew this partnership, but extend the relationship with our new ICS Service Solutions High Performance Centre. In these COVID times it is essential that we have our team train in an environment that is held to the highest standards and the ICS team ensure that this happens.”
"2021 begins an exciting new era for the Melbourne Rebels and Super Rugby here in Australia and the renewal of an organisation like ICS Service Solutions shows that the corporate world is just as excited as we are,” Stephenson added.
The re-commitment to the Rebels by ICS Service Solutions comes at an exciting time for Rugby in Australia as it launches on the new home of Rugby across the Nine Network and Stan.
The Melbourne Rebels first game of the 2021 season kicks off against the Queensland Reds on February 26, and first home game at AAMI Park is against the ACT Brumbies on Saturday March 6.
