The SMH has word on the Tradies getting a very cheap naming sponsorship of the Canberra Capitals at $150,000 a year.
TransACT are staying on as a minor sponsor and Ivan Slavich was reportedly at the announcement wearing his Chief Executive hat.

This might be splitting hairs, but does getting sponsorship from a community club conflict in any way with Basketball Australia’s commitment to not take sponsorship money from alcohol related companies?
Personally I don’t have a problem with it; just wondering where you draw the line. Nor should this be seen as a smear or attack on the Canberra Capitals. I note that the FFA also pledged to not take sponsorship money from alcohol related companies, and are sponsored by The Tradies (Canberra United; Capital Football; W-League).
I didn’t know John Mackay was on the board of the Tradies.
Does the ACT need greater federal representation?
