The University of Canberra Capitals are pleased to announce local media outlets Canberra FM and WIN Television as media partners for the 2016/17 WNBL season.
Canberra FM, which includes hit104.7 Canberra and Mix106.3, has signed on as the UC Capitals official radio partner, with WIN Television joining as free-to-air television partner.
University of Canberra Capitals general manager Matthew Phelps said support from partners such as Canberra FM and WIN Television was vital as the team looks to shake of the disappointment of last season and start fresh under new head coach Paul Goriss.
“The University of Canberra Capitals are thrilled to receive continued support from long term partners Canberra FM and WIN Television,” Phelps said.
“As we enter a new era for the University of Canberra Capitals, we’re pleased to be able to count on all of our partners to support us this season. We look forward to working hard and getting wins on the board,” Phelps added.
General Manager of Canberra FM Craig Wagstaff said the UC Caps are one of the iconic Canberran teams.
“For decades, the University of Canberra Capitals have been a cornerstone of the local teams that represent the A.C.T. region on the national stage and one that has had considerable success with seven championships,” Wagstaff said.
“Many of ‘our’ basketballers have become household names within local, national and international sport.
“Canberra FM Radio and Hit104.7 continue to be proud of the long-standing association with the University of Canberra Capitals and wish the team, coaching staff and management, many of whom are new faces, all the very best for the 2016/2017 season and beyond.”
