Momento Hospitality partners with Blacktown City FC
IN THE MEDIA – 1st February 2023 by Blacktown City Football Club
At their season launch on Wednesday 1st September 2023, Blacktown City FC also outlined their partnership with the new owners of Blacktown City Sports Centre, Momento Hospitality.
CEO of Momento, Marcello Colosimo, has wasted little time since acquiring Lily’s Function Centre and Blacktown City FC’s home late last year.
Renovations began immediately to revamp the facility to ‘Hudson Hotel’. The Hudson Hotel will become the home for post-game celebrations and events for Blacktown City FC.
“We are excited to revamp both the function centre and stadium and with Blacktown City FC we have an ideal partner to profile both organisations”, stated Marcello Colosimo.
“Our philosophy is also to give back to the community and together we have developed a ‘Grass Roots Training Programme’ to provide first-class training for those not fortunate enough to participate in NPL or SAP football.
The goal is to identify potential talent and offer scholarships to the proven Blacktown breeding ground through Momento”, Colosimo added.
In a further announcement, Momento has allowed Blacktown City FC to seek a naming rights partner for their home ground. Blacktown City FC and Momento are delighted to announce that Landen Property Group has agreed to a long-term commitment for ‘Landen Stadium’.
With a portfolio of work across the state, Landen currently has three major projects in Blacktown. Sharing a similar philosophy to Walker and Momento to build and give back to a community, Landen Director, Rashed Panabig, said the company was honoured by the opportunity to contribute to the future of Blacktown City FC.
“Our culture and business are built around a shared vision to make a meaningful, positive change to the communities we serve, and we are delighted to have this chance to support this great sport and the people who love it.
“Blacktown is one of the most progressive areas of Sydney, and we’re excited to be part of its future.”
Blacktown City FC’s first home game for the 2023 season is Sunday, February 5th in a Grand Final replay against Manly. Game time is 5pm. The Women commence their second season at the senior level at home on Sunday, March 12th against Marconi.
“We are delighted to be able to announce three main partnerships prior to the opening round of the 2023 season”, said Chairman, Turner.
“Walker, Momento Hospitality, and Landen Property Group provide, not only financial support for Blacktown City FC, but the credibility three mainstream business groups offer to the wider corporate community to get on Board”, Turner added
