Heart and community make a try with Sharks partnership

Mutual respect for strong community values has the National Rugby League Cronulla Sharks checking in for a long stay with Quest Apartment Hotels (Quest), as the two organisations team up for a national partnership for 2024 and 2025.

Quest, Australasia's leading apartment hotel brand, signed a two-year deal as the club's Major Partner for both the NRL and NRLW teams, Official Community Partner, and Official Membership Partner. This dynamic partnership aligns with Quest's commitment to supporting the local communities where their properties are located."Quest and the Cronulla Sharks believe we are only truly successful when the people around us and communities we operate in are thriving too," says Anthea Dimitrakopoulos, General Manager of Brand and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) at The Ascott Limited, Australia. "As an Official Community Partner of the 'Sharks Have Heart' program, we are proud to enable rugby league clinics for people with disability, anti-racism and social inclusion school programs, as well as healthy living programs for kids."

With seven new Quest properties set to open across Australia in the next two years, the accommodation giant is well-equipped to welcome Sharks fans travelling to away games.

And there’s stay incentives for Sharks Members. Select Quest properties nationally offer Sharks Members an exclusive 20 per cent discount throughout 2024 and 2025. For more information about the offer, or to become a Sharks Member, please visit this LINK.  

Quest's mix of spacious one and two-bedroom plus accessible apartments offer the perfect home base for families and groups to enjoy the game day experience together.

"Sharks fans are incredibly devoted, and we know they will be travelling far and wide to support their team this season," says David Mansfield, Managing Director of The Ascott Limited, Australia. "The Quest network looks forward to welcoming fans to our properties to cheer on the Sharks at their away games."

Sharks CEO Dino Mezzatesta is thrilled to join forces with an accommodation leader that shares the club's community-focused values.

"It's a privilege to join forces with an accommodation powerhouse that have been a leader in serviced apartments for 36 years and counting," Mezzatesta said. "Not only are Quest always striving for excellence, but they also operate with community at the forefront of their plans and share our values."

The partnership also shines a spotlight on the Sharks' burgeoning NRLW side, with Quest proudly signing on as the front-of-jersey sponsor for the women's team.

"With our NRLW side preparing to play their second season this year, it's brilliant to have Quest backing our women as front-of-jersey sponsor," Mezzatesta added. "Both our female and male teams can't wait to create a plethora of highlights while proudly wearing the Quest logo."

 

The Sharks and Quest kicked off their partnership by hosting a disability rugby league clinic to champion inclusivity through the 'Sharks Have Heart' program. 

 

Quest’s national partnership with Cronulla Sharks signifies the accommodation provider's dedication to building lasting relationships within the local communities that support Quest across Australia.
