The Health Insurance Fund of Australia (HIF) has renewed its partnership with ten-time NBL championship team the Perth Wildcats.
The renewal of the partnership between the two iconic Western Australian institutions comes on the eve of their ten-year anniversary working together, with 2022 marking the decade milestone.
A Diamond Partner of the team that last season marked 35 consecutive years of final playoffs, HIF’s support will be recognised on the official Wildcats jersey with its logo placed the back.
Testament to its support for the team, earlier this year HIF assisted three-time NBL MVP and all-star Perth Wildcats player Bryce Cotton with treating an injury sustained on the court.
As a HIF member, Cotton was able to access the required treatment from his chosen provider to treat the season-ending haematoma injury he sustained in his leg. After making a complete recovery, Cotton is now preparing for next year’s season on court.
Playing in more than double the amount of championships than any other NBL team in the world, HIF CEO Justin James said the company is proud to be supporting the Perth Wildcats as the team continues to triumph on the court.
“We’re so pleased to be renewing our support for the Perth Wildcats. Through this partnership we aim to support our home team of world renowned talent, who like HIF always put their members first,” said Mr. James.
Perth Wildcats CEO Troy Georgiu welcomed HIF’s support as the two organisations enter their 11th season of partnership.
“We’re particularly proud of the continued long-term support from HIF, which will take our partnership into its 11th season. As two proud West Australian member-based organisations, we both strive to make a positive impact in the community,” said Mr. Georgiu.
The tip off for the 2021/22 NBL season is set to hit the courts on Friday December 3.
