Crows partner with DCNS

The Adelaide Football Club is proud to announce that Australia’s Future Submarine designer and builder, DCNS, has come on board as an official partner for 2017.

As part of the partnership, DCNS will have the naming rights to the Crows Cup Carnival – a one day interschool girls-only football carnival aimed at encouraging young girls to give football a go in a fun and safe environment. The Department of Defence are also a supporting partner of the Crows Cup Carnival.

The inaugural Crows Cup Carnival was held over two days in December 2016 and was a resounding success with more than 250 middle school-aged girls taking part.

That will be extended this year, with five Carnivals to be held at locations across Adelaide during June and July.

As part of the official partnership, DCNS will also support the Crows Children’s Foundation which assists kids in need.

Crows CEO Andrew Fagan said the Club was delighted to be working with DCNS.

“DCNS is a world-class submarine designer and builder who have a genuine desire to forge strong links in South Australia,” Fagan said.

“We’re looking forward to working closely with DCNS to strengthen our Crows Cup Carnival and provide great outcomes in the community.”

DCNS Interim Chief Executive Officer Brent Clark said the company was thrilled to partner with the Adelaide Football Club.

“We are particularly delighted to support the Crows Cup Carnival as it provides a unique opportunity to reach out to school-age students and hopefully encourage them to become aware of DCNS and what opportunities might be available to them in the defence industry
