Barry Plant recently signed a two-year sponsorship deal with Melbourne Victory, the most successful club in the A-League.
The timing of the sponsorship announcement couldn’t have been better, with Kewell arriving at training at the same time Barry Plant was putting pen to paper.
Barry Plant has been speaking with Melbourne Victory for the past 12 months in a bid to come to an arrangement.
“There are real synergies with the Melbourne Victory community and the Barry Plant community.
The Victory membership base is very strong in Victoria. The sponsorship allows us to bring the club to our community.
With Victory, we will be looking to hold a community clinic, and we’ll be doing our best to host Melbourne Victory player appearances over the next six months.
Having the stars of Melbourne Victory meet and greet young fans in our community was the key contributor to striking the arrangement”
