Bundy firm a winner already
A BUNDABERG company will be at the forefront of the AFC Asian Cup after manufacturing innovative players’ benches for the competition.
Produced by Interseat, the benches will ensure world-class footballers, leading coaches and hordes of support staff are comfortable on the sidelines when AFC Asian Cup matches kick-off across the country next month.
Minister for Tourism, Major Events, Small Business and the Commonwealth Games Jann Stuckey said this successful local tender was chosen in favour of international competition.
“The Newman LNP Government’s strong support for major events is continuing to boost local businesses, support jobs and build a stronger Queensland,” Ms Stuckey said.
“Having the players’ benches designed and constructed by a Bundaberg company is a vote of confidence for Queensland manufacturers.
“An estimated global television audience of 500 million will watch the Asian Cup, the biggest football event ever held in Australia and Bundaberg’s own Interseat will be playing a major part.
“New Queensland-made benches will also leave an AFC Asian Cup legacy when they are used for Brisbane Roar home games.”
Ms Stuckey said the work completed for the AFC Asian Cup demonstrated how businesses in all corners of Queensland could benefit from upcoming major events supported by the Newman Government.
The Asian Cup kicks off in Brisbane on Friday, January 9.
