Mana Sports and Entertainment Group are pleased to announce the renewal of its partnership with Gold Coast-based events organiser The Event Crew for a further two years.
To further the mission of sport nonprofit Pho3nix Foundation to engage children in physical activity, Mana Group and The Event Crew have worked together since 2021 to deliver Pho3nix Kids Triathlon events in Australia across the Pho3nix Queensland Triathlon Series and Pho3nix Gold Coast Triathlon.
Since 2012, The Event Crew has executed events that are safe and enjoyable for all and, like Mana Group, shares the Pho3nix Foundation’s vision in providing avenues for sport and activity to kids across the ages of 7 to 16. With the expansion of Pho3nix Kids Triathlon events globally, confirming another two years with a trusted operator in The Event Crew further enhances Pho3nix Foundation’s presence in Australia, which is soon to expand into running participation events, education programs in swimming and athletics as well as talent development programs such as the upcoming Pho3nix Future Camp on the Gold Coast.
The Event Crew General Manager Brendon Downey says, “We’re delighted to extend the partnership with the Pho3nix Foundation as our naming rights partner of the Pho3nix Queensland Triathlon Series and the Pho3nix Gold Coast Triathlon.
“The ongoing partnership with the Pho3nix Foundation is greatly appreciated and assists us to continue offering a fun, quality experience, to both new and regular participants across these 8 events over the next 2 seasons.”
Mana Group executive chairman and Pho3nix Foundation board member Chris McCormack adds, “As a former triathlete I have a passion for kids enjoying multisport. The Pho3nix Foundation is about encouraging kids to do sport and our measuring stick for success is kids participating and smiling. The Event Crew aligns with that and understands that. So it’s exciting to continue working with them.”
