ORANGE UNITED WARRIORS STATEMENT
“The sponsorship Curijo has provided Orange United Warriors has enabled us to be a strong competitive club in 2021 both on and off the field. We were able to provide our players with quality playing uniforms and training gear, resulting in players having a strong sense of pride and belonging. As you are aware we are a family orientated club that aims to support our members to build social capital, and often this is centred around the drinking culture of football clubs. Your support has helped us to not have a bar at our games. The bar facilities was used to raise money for the club. This year due to your sponsorship we have not had to do that. This felt good for our club to further implement the values to not only our supporters but supporters of other clubs who travelled to play in Orange. The sponsorship also allowed the club to further establish itself as a leader in introducing our young Aboriginal kids into sport with this year having our United Warriors junior girls league tag teams play for the first year under our United banner.
Being an Aboriginal business your logo alone has installed pride and passion not only in our players and committee members but the whole of our community who supports our club not only in rugby league but across our other sports of netball, basketball, league tag and hockey. The logo was always a conversation starter when seen worn by our players and supporters, this with the ten’s of thousands social media comments and likes has thrown CURIJO’s name out into the sporting arena right across Orange and the central west region not to mention the far reaches of social media.
All of our players, supporters and committee members would like to thank CURIJO for your generous sponsorship for the 2021 season, both our men’s and women’s team made it to last weekends Grand Final unfortunately both teams lost, but as a club in only our second year ( of rugby league, we have been established in other sports for the last 7 years) we have taken this as a massive win for our club and this would not have been possible without the support of CURIJO.”
