“This season, ANZA Soccer extends a heartfelt thank you to our returning sponsors: Canadian International School, Carey Olsen, Expat Dental and The King’s School,” says Keith Thorn. “We are also delighted to welcome on board Edge Healthcare, Interactive Brokers, MUFG Investor Services, and Esteem Performance. These companies have stepped up to help ANZA Soccer continue providing the soccer programmes our kids love, while meeting the extra requirements imposed by COVID-19.”
Canadian International School (CIS), sponsoring the Gordons
“ANZA Soccer has a strong reputation amongst the expat community. We recognised it as an excellent opportunity to generate brand awareness of the school amongst expat parents.” – Sheena King, Marketing Manager
The Canadian International School caters to students aged 2-18 across two campuses- Lakeside in the west and Tanjong Katong in the east. CIS welcomes students from over 70 nations and is one of the few schools in Singapore to offer all three IB programmes: Primary Years, Middle Years and IB.
Carey Olsen, sponsoring our coaches
“Local friends recommended that one of the first things that we should do upon arrival in Singapore in 2016 is enrol our two eldest boys (Tom and Matt) in the ANZA Soccer Saturday Club League. We liked that it was fun, social and run by volunteer parents, and that there were also opportunities for kids to develop more competitive skills in the Sunday Competition League. The kids have thoroughly enjoyed playing in both ANZA Soccer leagues and we’ve made some long-lasting family friendships with ANZA coaches, players, team managers and group coordinators, who each work so hard to make ANZA’s Soccer programme the tremendous success that it is.
It’s one of our priorities at Carey Olsen to give back to the communities in which we are based and so we are delighted to be offering our continued support to ANZA Soccer, one that my own family has a personal affiliation with. ANZA have established a fantastic social community and coaching programme that has become hugely popular with both junior players and parents in Singapore. We look forward to supporting ANZA Soccer in the years to come and see the ANZA leagues go from strength to strength.”
– Anthony McKenzie, Managing Partner

Edge Healthcare, sponsoring the Sailors
“One of our rockstar physios has been involved in ANZA Soccer on a volunteer basis for years. She told us about the fantastic community spirit, exemplary values, and quality coaching at ANZA soccer, and we couldn’t wait to be involved. We look forward to the journey and embracing the ‘kampung spirit’ that we feel both Edge Healthcare and ANZA soccer share!” – Joseph Harrison, Lead Physiotherapist / Director

Expat Dental, sponsoring the Matildas

The healthy active lifestyle promoted by ANZA allows children to grow and learn skills, not just for physical, but for mental and emotional development too. We see ANZA as one of the premier social and community organisations for all nationalities. We are delighted to have the Matildas developing as a team, and we are very proud to put our logo on the team shirts.” – Lydia Astill, Marketing Manager

The fact that so many volunteers commit to it week on week, year on year is inspiring. ANZA Soccer has a reputation for being the ‘go to’ youth soccer league and this is so rightly deserved.”
Interactive Brokers, sponsoring our Competition Teams
“Interactive Brokers have just opened an office in Singapore and are pleased that our first sponsorship is with the ANZA Soccer Competition League. Many of the families in the program are clients of Interactive Brokers and we are happy to support them, and youth sports in Singapore.

The King’s School, sponsoring the Warriors
“We were visiting our King’s community in Singapore and there were several families also involved with ANZA. Our partnership with ANZA Soccer is very positive. It extends our involvement with our own community in Singapore and supports them in a very practical way. More Australian and New Zealand expats are reaching out to get to know us and we are exploring ways of helping those families consider their education choices.” – Michelle Petrovic, Marketing Manager
