Pepper Money backs Saints Community

Posted: 07-12-2020

In its 20th year, Pepper Money has thrown its support behind the Saints yet again, recommitting as Co-Principal Partner of the club for 2021. The new agreement sees Australia’s number one alternative lender shift the focus of the partnership to include the Saints community – the real people who make footy what it is.

“We are thrilled to have Pepper Money on board for 2021,” St Kilda CEO Matt Finnis said.
“They have been a crucial part of our sponsorship family since 2015, and to have them not only recommit to us, but adjust their focus to include our community is fantastic.

“We know it has been an incredibly tough year right across Australia, but particularly in Victoria, so to have an organisation like Pepper Money invest in bringing people back together and helping them succeed is incredible.”

Thanks to Pepper Money, the Saints will host a ‘Community Round’ at a home game in Season 2021.

“The Community Round will allow us to highlight organisations and individuals committed to making their community a better place,” Pepper Money CEO Australia and New Zealand Mario Rehayem said.

“As a people focused lender, Pepper Money specialises in flexible loan solutions that help people through the highs, lows and unexpected events that real life throws at them. This partnership with the Saints will allow us to champion those people and make a tangible difference in the community in areas that are traditionally under-served." Mario Rehayem 


As Co-Principal Partner, Pepper will also have a presence across all St Kilda community programs including SaintsPlay, Play To Your Strengths, the Saints’ multicultural ambassador program and St Kilda’s deaf, blind and wheelchair football teams.

Pepper will continue to be seen on our famous red, white and black guernsey with a move to the upper back in 2021.
