Football Queensland kicks off partnership with Oaks Hotels & Resorts

17 May, 2017 - Football Queensland is delighted to welcome leading accommodation provider Oaks Hotels & Resorts to the football community as its new Official Accommodation Partner.

Founded in 1991, Oaks Hotels & Resorts is a Queensland success story, having grown from its original Sunshine Coast location to a portfolio of 56 properties spanning five countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates, and most recently India.

Now one of Australia’s largest apartment-style accommodation providers, the global brand is eager to share its quintessentially Queensland values with its home state’s footballing community.

As a part of the collaboration, the relationship will provide exciting benefits for all club members and supporters, offering access to special rates by simply entering the promo code ‘QLDFB’; access to Oaks’ exclusive sales and offers; as well as discounts on functions, events and catering at its local Oaks property.

Mr Mike Anderson, Chief Operations Officer of Oaks Hotels & Resorts, said the alliance seemed only fitting given the hotelier’s strong Queensland heritage, and is looking forward to working with Football Queensland to develop a range of benefits for both participants and clubs.

“Oaks Hotels & Resorts has grown globally since its humble Queensland beginnings, though it still takes great pride in giving back to regional Queensland communities and seeing young local footballing talent follow the same journey to success,” he said.

In addition to offering accommodation discounts for club members and supporters, Oaks Hotels & Resorts is also providing the opportunity for Football Queensland to generate income by earning a percentage of sales for bookings made using the promo code ‘QLDFB’.

Football Queensland CEO Geoff Foster welcomed the renowned brand and its 24 state-wide properties to the game’s thriving community.

“We are delighted to kick-off our new partnership with Oaks Hotels & Resorts, offering much-needed accommodation support for our players and their families travelling for all tournaments, providing a welcome relief for all,” he said.

“Oaks Hotels & Resorts boasts a substantial footprint across Australia and internationally, opening up some excellent new opportunities for our code in the future; it’s rewarding to be able to continue this expansion alongside another successful Queensland-based company.”

Oaks Hotels & Resorts is a division of Minor Hotels, an international hotel owner, operator and investor currently with more than 150 hotels in operation in 24 countries across Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Africa, the Indian Ocean, Europe and South America.
