Melbourne Victory announced on Tuesday that La Ionica has joined the club as a major partner and will feature on the back of the club’s Hyundai A-League and National Youth League shirts for the next two years.

Melbourne Victory Chairman Geoff Lord welcomed La Ionica on board at a press conference at Olympic Park Stadium, noting that the La Ionica brand has become synonymous with quality and healthy lifestyle throughout Australia.

“We’re very excited about the association,” Lord said.

“La Ionica are an Australian-based chicken company and they’re a very exciting partner to have with us.”

La Ionica Marketing Manager Pina Di Donato said La Ionica and its founder Sam Cuteri were looking forward to a strong partnership with the reigning Hyundai A-League Premiers and Champions.

“Sam and La Ionica, apart from being a major chicken producer, have been involved for many years with local clubs at grassroots level, supporting up and coming talent,” Di Donato said.

“Sam’s ambition has been to grow his chicken business to be one of Victoria’s major suppliers of chicken and chicken products.

“Along with his business growth, he is pleased to be able to grow his sponsorship of Melbourne Victory.

“We at La Ionica are excited about the prospect of seeing our name on the back of the shirt of such a great club.”
