At their season launch, Blacktown City FC also outlined their partnership with the new owners of Blacktown City Sports Centre, Momento Hospitality.
CEO of Momento, Marcello Colosimo, has wasted little time since acquiring Lily’s Function Centre and Blacktown City FC’s home late last year. Renovations began immediately to revamp the facility to ‘The Star Hotel and Event Centre’. The Star will become the home for post-game celebrations and events for Blacktown City FC.
“We are excited to revamp both the function centre and stadium and with Blacktown City FC we have an ideal partner to profile both organisations”, stated Marcello Colosimo.
“Our philosophy is also to give back to the community and together we have developed a ‘Grass Roots Training Programme’ to provide first class training for those not fortunate enough to participate in NPL or SAP football. The goal is to identify potential talent and offer scholarships to the proven Blacktown breeding ground through Momento”, Colosimo added.
Blacktown City FC’s first home game for the 2023 season is Sunday, February 5th in a Grand Final replay against Manly. Game time is 5pm.
The Women commence their second season at the senior level at home on Sunday, March 12th against Marconi.
“We are delighted to be able to announce three main partnerships prior to the opening round of the 2023 season”, said Chairman, Turner. “Walker, Momento Hospitality, and Landen Property Group provide, not only financial support for Blacktown City FC, but the credibility three mainstream business groups offer to the wider corporate community to get on Board”, Turner added.
Go Blacktown City!
