Singapore, 18 October 2018
Singapore’s first and largest robo-advisor CONNECT by Crossbridge today announced its new sponsorship with the Australian and New Zealand Association (ANZA) Soccer. This demonstrates the key role it plays in fostering a welcoming and multinational community that emphasises collaboration and teamwork.
With over 40 years of experience in delivering quality soccer programmes, ANZA Soccer provides opportunities for children aged 3 to 18 to participate in organised grassroots soccer in a fun, friendly and social environment in Singapore. As part of the partnership, CONNECT by Crossbridge will be sponsoring the Vikings club in the upcoming soccer season. With approximately 90 children aged 7 to 16 across seven teams within the league, these children will receive their own Vikings CONNECT by Crossbridge kits, which include soccer clothes, shoes, and equipment.

In March this year, CONNECT by Crossbridge became a Gold Sponsor of ANZA. This 18-month partnership includes the sponsorship of the “Chill, Chat, Connect: Networking Series” – a series of three business networking events covering a range of topics for a corporate audience – and Team Sponsorship in the ANZA Soccer Junior League.
“CONNECT by Crossbridge’s continued support of ANZA is a demonstration of our ongoing commitment to promoting a vibrant culture through fun and engaging social activities among the ANZA community,” said Charlie O’Flaherty, Partner and Head of Digital Strategy & Distribution, Crossbridge Capital. “Participating in sports and other physical activities is important in the holistic development of children. CONNECT by Crossbridge will continue to play a role in enabling their multi-faceted growth and help ANZA Soccer grow from strength to strength.”
“We hope that our efforts will encourage and empower others to contribute positively to their community. This is also aligned with the aim of the CONNECT by Crossbridge solution, where customers will be empowered to take control of finances and achieve their life goals, with giving back being a fundamental goal for many,” he added.
“CONNECT by Crossbridge’s support will be key to ANZA Soccer as we create fun and enjoyable experiences for the children taking part in the upcoming season. We are happy to further extend our partnership with them, and will work together to foster greater community spirit,” said Kerry Low, General Manager, ANZA.
