Gallagher has partnered with Australia's premier football leagues as their official insurance broker and referee partner.

As the official insurance broker and referee partner of the A-League and the Westfield W-League in 2020/2021, Gallagher will sponsor referees to support their vital work in safeguarding the integrity of the game and the safety of the players.

“Referees play a critical role in football. There is no game without referees, just as there is no business without insurance and risk management solutions,” said Gallagher Australia chief executive officer Sarah Lyons.

“You'll find both Gallagher and the referees running with the action, protecting integrity, and playing an essential role in keeping everyone safe and moving with confidence.

“In addition to sponsoring the referees, Gallagher is the official insurance broker for the A-League and Westfield W-League. We are delighted to support the development of professional football in Australia, while also showcasing our insurance broking expertise for businesses large and small.”

Greg O'Rourke, the head of Leagues, commented: “We are delighted to partner with Gallagher. This new relationship will enrich the footballing experience for our fans, our players, and importantly, our referees. Football is back, and our players and officials are all ready to be back on to the pitch and get the 2020/21 season started.” 

Football Australia general manager, refereeing, Mathew Cheeseman added: “On behalf of all our referees, I would like to thank Gallagher. I think their analogy of our respective roles is entirely fitting, and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial association.”

The A-League and Westfield W-League seasons begin on December 27.
