Melbourne Victory is pleased to announce Dulux as its Official Membership partner for the 2011/12 Hyundai A-League season.

Dulux is one of the largest manufacturers, distributors and marketers of decorative and protective surface coatings in Australia. Since 1918, Dulux has supplied paint to DIY customers and professional painters, as well as stockists, hardware chains and retailers.

Dulux has been involved with Melbourne Victory since the club-s inception and this latest agreement will be their sixth year as the club-s Official Membership partner. General Manager - Trade, Phil White, said the ongoing relationship was a win-win for both parties, "Plenty of professional trade painters are avid football supporters, so it made sense for Dulux to support the game they follow" he said.

"While we-ve been involved with the club since day one, we became the Official Membership partner back in season two and have enjoyed plenty of success with Melbourne Victory over the years.

"The club has developed a winning culture and we-re delighted to be a partner of Melbourne Victory again this season, which promises to be an exciting period for the club” White added.

Melbourne Victory Chairman, Anthony Di Pietro, was rapt with the extension of what has proved to be a successful relationship. “Dulux has been a fantastic supporter of our football club and to have them on-board again is very pleasing.

“We-ve been working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure we have another solid platform to build from next season and this partnership is a very important one to us as we enter a new chapter in the clubs history.” Di Pietro said.

The Dulux name will feature heavily throughout all of the club-s 2011/12 membership collateral, with the renewals information due to be released shortly.
