Northern Star to guide Giants

By Goldfields Giants Media

The Goldfields Giants have secured another big off-season signing with mining giant Northern Star Resources Limited coming on as the Giants’ Naming Rights partner for the next three seasons.

After being involved with the Giants since 2014, including the inaugural major partner for our SBL Men’s Division 1 team in 2017, Northern Star Resources jumped at the chance to increase their involvement with the club

The announcement was officially made today by Northern Star Resources, Kalgoorlie Operations general manager Jim Coxon during his presentation at the KBCCI’s annual Whats Down The Track forum in Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

Coxon spoke highly of the partnership.
“Northern Star Resources is extremely excited to be partnering with the Goldfields Giants over the next three seasons.”
“We are looking forward to working with the Giants to keep the Kalgoorlie-Boulder community spirit strong and passionate through the sport of Basketball.”

Goldfields Giants chairman Jamie Crombie echoed the sentiment.
“We’ve been blessed in having worked with some fantastic major partners over the years, who have enabled the Giants to bring something special to the Goldfields community and we look forward continuing this trend with Northern Star Resources.”

In their 28 seasons in the State Basketball League, the Giants have had just 7 major partners, with most recent company, Silver Lake Resources having recently completed their 6th season to be the Giants’ second longest tenured partner over this time.
