New Sponsors Join Tigers Club
The Tigers have announced two locally based companies as Major Sponsors of the Tigers Club for 2013.
CARE TRAFFIC and Patches Asphalt have combined forces to assist the Tigers retain the NEAFL Eastern Conference Premiership.
Former Tigers Premiership player Craig Hall has been instrumental in securing the arrangement which will see both companies feature on the Tigers home game jumper next year and beyond.
CARE TRAFFIC became a Sponsor of the Tigers Long Luncheon this year.
Through Managing Director Adrian Dart the business is also a major partner with the GWS GIANTS. The business sponsors games at Manuka Oval when the GIANTS are playing.

The Club welcomes both businesses on board and look forward to a rewarding partnership as the Tigers further develop their brand as a genuine NEAFL organisation.
• Tobin Brothers
Tobin Brothers have renewed their sponsorship for 2013 with Managing Director Warwick Hansen confirming the arrangement recently. The sponsorship has been ongoing for approx 15 years and along with ActewAGL and Dairy Farmers are valued and important associates of the Tigers Club Organisation.
Taking over the onerous task of following in the footsteps of former Tobin Brothers Area Manager Christine Walters (one of our very favourite Ladies who has moved to the Gold Coast) is that of Misty and Anthony DalMolin – two Queanbeyanites who are indeed excited and looking forward to having an involvement with the organisation.
Tobin Brothers are highly regarded in the area of facilitating funeral arrangements and only recently have been wonderful in their efforts of looking after the families of two close associates with the passing of former Ladies Committee Member and Life Member Mrs Agnus Campbell (mother for 100 1st Grade Gamer Ken and grandmother to newly appointed Div 1 Coach Paul) and that of Una McDonald, mother of former Club Secretary Alan McDonald.
Our condolences to both families.

Also coming on board as a Major Corporate Sponsor is that of the Canberra Data Centre.
Through Craig Sebbons – a Managing Director of the business and a former Masters Player in the local AFL Canberra teams – CDC will feature on the Tigers new style playing shorts for 2013.
CDC has been a Major Sponsor of the Tigers Long Luncheon over the past two years and in addition to contributing to this function has also donated back prize money won at the function in consecutive years.
Tigers Board of Management member and former player Dave Hunter facilitated the arrangement and we thank both he and in particular Craig and other Directors of the business for increasing their involvement with the NEAFL Premiers.
