The Perth Thundersticks and Hockey WA are pleased to announce Bravo® Apples as a partner of WA’s elite men’s and women’s hockey franchise for the 2023 Hockey One season. 

In a significant victory off the field for the Perth Thundersticks, support from Bravo® Apples will see the Bravo® Apples logo and branding on the uniforms of coaches, managers and support staff as the franchise’s official off-field team supporting partner. 

Bravo® Apples are proudly grown by more than 90 growers across Western Australia, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Victoria and are readily available at major supermarkets and local independent grocers. 

Like no other, Bravo® Apples are rated as Australia’s best tasting apple – the perfect addition to lunchboxes, fruit platters, snacks, desserts and much more. 

“Supporting the Perth Thundersticks in their quest for national glory creates a wonderful symmetry for Bravo® Apples,” Sean Engelbrecht, Commercialisation Manager of Bravo® Apples said. 

“Bravo® was created, developed and grown in Western Australia and we have seen first-hand the hard work and time growers put into creating a successful product and understand the support, time, care and effort needed to create success on a national stage. 

“We are delighted to support the hard-working hockey players of WA as they seek to achieve their dreams on a national level, and we hope their actions will be an inspiration to future generations of aspiring hockey players.” 

Hockey WA CEO Fabian Ross said the partnership with Bravo® Apples is a big coup for the Perth Thundersticks in this year’s Hockey One season. 

“We are thrilled to have Bravo® Apples on board and are excited to sign a commercial partnership with a healthy, nutritious snack that was developed right here in Western Australia,” Ross said. 

“The unique partnership will provide added support for our off-field teams, a crucial part of the Perth Thundersticks program, as well as allow our elite men and women to set a fine example for future generations with their food choices. 

“It is really pleasing for our WA hockey stars to have the backing of such a strong brand that benefits our community through promoting healthy eating habits and supporting growers and we look forward to a successful relationship with Bravo® Apples this year.” 

The partnership will also see two emerging Perth Thundersticks stars act as Bravo® Apples ambassadors, with Tom Harvie and Sarah Byrnes on board as official brand ambassadors.
