The Western Bulldogs have today announced EML as the Club’s official coaches apparel partner for the 2016 season.

EML work collaboratively and constructively with workers and their employers to deliver the best injury claims management services and sustainable return to work outcomes.

Western Bulldogs Chief Executive Officer David Stevenson said the Club was pleased to partner with a like-minded organisation in EML.

“We’re delighted to welcome EML as partner of our Club,” Stevenson said.

“What really stands out for us is the genuine commitment EML has to its community, which is very much a focal point for the Western Bulldogs also.”

“We are proud of this new partnership, and look forward to strengthening it into the future.”

EML CEO Mark Coyne said his organisation was looking forward to their future with the Bulldogs.

“EML shares a natural affinity with the Western Bulldogs and their commitment to supporting not only their players and members, but also for being champions of change in their community.

“Just as EML has been helping people get their lives back for over 100 years, the Western Bulldogs have built a proud heritage of representing their Club members and supporting the western region community over many years.

“It is this proud heritage of ‘giving back’ which runs deep in the partnership we have forged between the Western Bulldogs and EML, and we look forward to working together.”

As part of the partnership, the EML logo will appear on all coaches apparel.
