UniSA students will be given more opportunities to undertake placements and internships in the AFL thanks to a new partnership between UniSA and the Adelaide Crows.
UniSA and the Adelaide Football Club have announced a partnership that will provide a range of unique experiences for UniSA students to connect with the Crows.
It will also pave the way for collaboration in sports science and sports business research.
Crows Chief Executive Officer Andrew Fagan is looking forward to the highly productive partnership and benefits it will bring.
“We employ a number of graduates across the club in areas from business development to finance and football,” Fagan says.
“Our Head of Football Brett Burton holds an honours degree in Human Movement from UniSA and we also already have a research-based relationship.
“We are delighted with the University’s enthusiasm to extend and formalise our relationship and to offer more of its expertise in both research and education.
“This will be a highly productive partnership for both the Crows and UniSA.”
UniSA Vice Chancellor Professor David Lloyd says the new partnership is an exciting development for two leading South Australian institutions, founded in the same era and with the same spirit of enterprise.
“We will be building on our already close links with the Adelaide Crows, which include a range of activities such as collaborations around leading edge research in sports science, elite performance measurement and training, athlete health and fitness and exercise science, as well as placement opportunities provided by the Crows for our students,” Prof Lloyd says.
As a premier partner, the UniSA logo will be seen prominently on the sleeves of AFL and AFLW player and coach apparel as well as across match-day activations, member offers and experiences, and other events and branding.
