Metricon extends naming rights deal with Gold Coast Suns stadium

Australia’s largest home-builder, Metricon Homes, has extended its naming rights deal with Aussie Rules club the Gold Coast Suns for four more years.

Metricon has named the Suns’ 25,000-capacity stadium since the club entered the Australian Football League (AFL) in 2011.

The new deal will include a new two-story hospitality site to be known as ‘The Terrace’.

The Terrace will be used by Metricon’s clients and contractors, and provide a base for members and fans at the stadium.

Ahead of the club’s first home game of the 2019 AFL Toyota Premiership Season, Suns chief executive Mark Evans, said: “Metricon Homes have supported us since the club’s inception and are committed to not only helping the Gold Coast Suns grow, but AFL in Queensland.”

Metricon’s Gold Coast-based director, Jason Biasin, added: “Metricon is proud to have been side-by-side with the Suns since 2011, forging a grass-roots partnership that promotes the community and family connections synonymous with both of our brands.”

Metricon will join Major Support Partner Austworld and the recent addition of Coaches Partner @realty on the Suns’ roster.
