Norwood Football Club is excited to announce VAILO as a Major Partner of the Redlegs in 2024.

VAILO is a manufacturer of ultra-high-performance LED sports lighting and a solutions provider of LED digital displays, with its HQ located 1km down the road from the home of the Redlegs, Coopers Stadium (Norwood Oval). In 2022, Norwood Oval was upgraded with 192 VAILO luminaires across the four light towers and 300 metres of VAILO digital displays around the boundary which has transformed the venue to the only one of its kind in the SANFL and SANFLW.

The new partnership will see the VAILO logo feature on the back of the iconic red and blue Norwood guernsey, beneath the player’s number, and on the playing shorts across the Senior Men’s, Senior Women’s, U18 Boys and U16 Boys teams, as well as around Norwood Oval, including the light towers.

Norwood Commercial Operations Manager Dale Fleming said “this is an exciting sponsorship for our footy club and in many ways consolidates what has already been a partnership for several years with VAILO technology already lighting up Coopers Stadium for SANFL, SANFLW and AFL matches.

“To officially recognise their commitment to our club on our guernsey and through an official sponsorship is fantastic and we are thrilled to welcome VAILO as a major partner.”

VAILO CEO Aaron Hickmann said “Norwood Oval is significant for VAILO, being the company’s first prominent lighting and digital display project, and we are proud to be strengthening our partnership with Norwood Football Club as a Major Partner.

“This collaboration goes beyond just showcasing the VAILO logo on the iconic guernseys and playing shorts, it symbolises our shared commitment to innovation and community engagement.”

The confirmation of VAILO as a Major Partner finalises all Norwood Guernsey Sponsors with VAILO joining other iconic South Australian businesses – IWS, Fleurieu Milk, Paradise Mazda and Apelle as the 2024 Norwood Football Club official guernsey partners.

“It’s fantastic and fitting that the historical Norwood Football Club Guernsey features entirely other proud South Australian Brands and that our iconic venue Norwood Oval is known as Coopers Stadium, an SA brand that is as iconic as they come. The Norwood and Coopers partnership is entering into a 78th year, the longest in SA Sport!” Dale said.
