AGL will remain the presenting sponsor of two of Melbourne Victory's two largest off-field events as part of a multi-year renewal with the A-League side.

Melbourne yesterday revealed that AGL, a category partner of the club since 2014, had agreed a two-year extension.

As part of the partnership, AGL will remain the naming rights sponsor of the 'Victory in Business' sports networking group and the 'Chairman's Function' hospitality event at game-days.

Organisers claim that Victory in Business is the largest corporate networking body of its kind in Australia, with member organisations facilitating more than $150 million in business since the initiative's founding.

The Victory partnership is one of AGL's three elite sporting partnerships, along with deals with AFL side West Coast and the Super Rugby's NSW Waratahs.

Meanwhile, Veolia has signed a one-year major partnership with the Newcastle Jets after a successful short-term trial with the club.

As reported by Sponsorship News, Veolia appeared on jersey of the Jets' youth team at a recent tournament in China as part of a pitch to the environmental services firm.

Veolia will now feature on the Jets' sleeve for the coming 2017-18 season. The French multinational employs more than 4,000 people in Australia, including some in the Hunter, where it operates treatment plants for Hunter Water.

It marks a return to the A-League for Veolia, which was the principal sponsor of Adelaide United from 2013 until 2016.

Veolia ANZ CEO and managing director, Doug Dean, pointed to Newcastle's promising squad and the recent appointment of veteran coach Ernie Merrick as reasons for the partnership.

"The Jets have undergone recent strategic changes that we are impressed with. They have a dynamic squad backed by one of the most successful coaches in the A-League’s history, so we’re really looking forward to them shaking up the competition this season."
