Richmond’s business interests have grown with Aligned Leisure, a 100 percent owned subsidiary of the club, successfully winning the tender to manage Cardinia Shire Council’s major recreation facilities.

The contract will see Aligned Leisure manage eight major facilities within the Cardinia Shire, which is located 50 kilometres south-east of Melbourne. The facilities will include Cardinia Life Aquatic and Recreation Centre, Pakenham Regional Tennis Centre and four seasonal aquatic facilities. In addition, the currently under construction Officer Community Hub as well as an outdoor synthetic sporting facility will form part of the management contract.

It is anticipated that visitation across all eight facilities will be in excess of one million people annually.

“The board and management have a responsibility to our members and supporters to build a strong, sustainable football club and today’s announcement is a significant part of delivering on that promise,” said Richmond chief executive Brendon Gale.

“Elite-level football is highly-competitive and it is critical we identify opportunities to diversify and grow our business where it makes strategic sense. It is bold, innovative and has been a long time in the planning,” Gale added.

Aligned Leisure will be headed up by Cain Liddle, Richmond’s General Manager of Consumer Business and Shane Dunne, Consumer Strategy Manager.

Aligned Leisure will commence management on these facilities on July 1.
