Commonwealth Bank have combined their long-running support for women’s cricket, with their recent sponsorship of women’s football and The Matildas for an empowering new summer campaign.

‘The Game Changers’ aims to champion both elite and grassroots female cricketers and footballers, who through their skill and passion are moving the game forward and changing it for the better, ensuring women are better represented in sport and their achievements properly recognised.

The campaign features high-profile athletes Ellyse Perry and Sam Kerr, as well as women and girls who live and breathe the sport at a grassroots level – Anyier, Dharmini, Evie and Zoe.

“Our long-standing support for women’s cricket coupled with our new sponsorship of women’s football has helped us understand the importance of creating equal access for players of all ages, genders and abilities to participate in sport,” said CommBank’s general manager of brand and sponsorships, Diane Everett.

“We are proud to support Australia’s future game changers through women’s sport from grassroots to elite levels.

“Our commitment to two of the country’s favourite sports will further inspire women and girls to be active and play a game they are passionate about.”

The 30-second hero TV commercial features music by artist, Sampa The Great, and showcases women’s talent and game changing sporting ability.

The campaign will also feature 15-second and 6-second ads tailored for football and cricket audiences, as well as extensive large and small format OOH buys, digital assets and upcoming social assets that will showcase the in-depth stories of grassroots talent.

“When I was growing up, it was rare to see anyone like me catch or kick a ball,” said executive director at M&C Saatchi Group AUNZ, Mandie van der Merwe.

“CommBank’s renewed support of women in sport is not only important because it makes transformation possible now, it’s vital because it allows future generations to watch these game changers on-screen and imagine the possibilities for themselves.”

Commbank’s new Football partnership builds on their continued 20-year support of Women’s Cricket and makes them Australia’s largest supporter of women’s sport.
