Kicking goals has always been a focus for Higgins Coatings and now we're committed to doing it on the football field.

Always seeking to give back to the community, Higgins has recently partnered with Eastlake F.C, an ACT based junior football club.  With four licensed clubs, over 30,000 members and- most importantly- an extensive School Clinics Program, an Eastlake-Higgins partnership became an obvious choice.  This alignment was officially launched on Friday 15/02, with representatives from both parties in attendance at the Kingston Oval.

Xavier Forsberg, Branch Manager of Canberra (pictured above), has been instrumental in securing the signatures and is ecstatic with the outcome. “Higgins are incredibly excited to be part of a long-standing club such as Eastlake F.C.  The opportunity to support local business and the community we operate in is something we always strive to do.” 

The feelings are mutual with Eastlake’s General Manager of Football, Shaun Young, echoing the sentiment.  “We look forward to the partnership being beneficial and would like to thank Higgins for their generous support of Eastlake F.C.”

We are proud to announce that going forward, the clubs Auskick program will adopt the name “The Higgins Eastlake Auskick Program”.  While the junior football program is prominent in its own right, the partnership will generate further exposure for Higgins via Eastlake’s NEAFL affiliate the Canberra Demons.  The ink has only just dried on this deal, however both parties are feverish about the future.
