QBE Day Another Great Subiaco Success

Monday, April 30, 2018 - 9:46 AM

The Subiaco Football Club held its eighth QBE Day with great success in conjunction with Subiaco’s Round Four clash with Claremont.


For the eighth time, Subiaco honoured their ongoing partnership with QBE by donning a special Cyan jumper, with Subiaco winning a hard fought match by 86 points after a tight first half.


This marked the sixth time that Subiaco had won on QBE Day, including its fifth straight win dating back to 2014.


The QBE Day concept was first coined in 2011 to assist with QBE celebrating it’s 125th anniversary.


After receiving wide praise, this has continued to be an annual event with a number of other key achievements recognised in recent seasons including the 30 year partnership between Subiaco and QBE back in 2014.


Now in the 34th year of partnership, Subiaco and QBE have become synonymise with WAFL footy and the partnership continues to be the envy of all other community sporting clubs.


In 2018, QBE Day culminated on a Thursday night for the second time, with Subiaco’s Cyan jumper worn underlights as Subiaco battled Claremont in a Thursday night fixture.


To help celebrate this occasion a host of activities were on offer across the night as well as in the post-match review.
