A significant portion of the GCG team are huge sports fans and of late there has been a large amount of World Cup banter circulating. This has ranged from obsessive fandom to bandwagon support – with the occasional well-natured discussion regarding the state of the dive in all professional sports. With the timezone difference between Russia and Australia not being favourable, coffee consumption is also up.

It is timely then that we announce that GCG is now sponsoring Brisbane City Football Club. GCG has close ties to the club and is proud to support one of our local teams.

Brisbane City FC is based in Newmarket, on the Northside of Brisbane. The club has over 35 teams of all ages, with the Men’s Senior team playing in the PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues Queensland. The club was originally a foundation member of the Australian National Soccer League (NSL). The club has many successful development programs and has produced numerous professional players over the years.

This sponsorship forms part of our community and industry contribution program. Historically we have focused on contributing to our professions two leading industry bodies, the Safety Institute of Australia (SIA) and the Australian Institute of Occupational Hygienists (AIOH).

Over the next years, we are increasing our contribution to our local communities in addition to our work forwarding the health, safety and hygiene profession.
