Official Referee Partner

New partnership for Gallagher and Football Australia as we sponsor the A-League and Westfield W-League Referees

Gallagher are proud to have brokered a ground-breaking deal with Australia’s premier football leagues, which will put us in the thick of every game this season.

We'll be out on the pitch, running alongside Australia’s most elite footballers as the official referee partner and insurance broker for the A-League and the Westfield W-League in 2020/21.

Gallagher has a rich legacy of partnering with elite sport around the world and we understand how powerfully our values of integrity, teamwork and excellence line-up with the ethos of high-performance football.

We're proud to be supporting the vital work of the referees in safeguarding the integrity of the game as well as the safety of the players. Referees play a critical role in football and there is no game without referees, just as there is no business without insurance and risk management solutions.

In addition to sponsoring the referees, Gallagher is the official insurance broker for the A-League and Westfield W-League. We are delighted to support the development of professional football in Australia, while also showcasing our insurance broking expertise for businesses large and small.
