St George Illawarra are proud to announce that Anytime Fitness have expanded their association with the club by becoming a partner of the Dragons' inaugural Women's Premiership team for the next two seasons.

Anytime Fitness, who are currently executive partners of the club's NRL endeavours, will also now be apparel partners of the Dragons' NRL Holden Women's Premiership inaugural season.

Anytime Fitness branding will sit on both the front and back of the Dragons' playing shorts for the maiden elite women's competition.

Anytime Fitness CEO Arthur McColl was excited to help perpetuate the fastest growing participation segment in rugby league.

"We're thrilled to support the establishment of a female Dragons team. It's an exciting time for the NRL and we're happy to do what we can to support female participation in the sport," McColl said.

“At Anytime Fitness, we're passionate about getting all Australians moving to improve their health and fitness, whether it be in the gym or playing a team sport. A rise in female participation in the NRL is a positive step forward."

Anytime Fitness multi-club franchisee Samuel Green was equally excited to see the organisation increase their partnership with the Dragons.

"As an Anytime franchisee it is always important that we support everyone in their endeavour to reach their full potential in health and in life," Green said.

"Supporting the St George Illawarra Dragons women's team is no different. We are very proud to partner two huge community brands in the Dragons and Anytime Fitness.

"It is a privilege to support these incredible athletes in the inaugural NRL women's competition. We look forward to seeing the ladies hold the winner’s trophy end of season."

Dragons Chief Operating Officer Michael McDonald welcomed Anytime Fitness' commitment as foundation partners of the Dragons' inaugural Women's Premiership campaign.

"We are delighted that Anytime Fitness has strengthened their relationship with the Dragons by becoming foundation partners for our inaugural NRL Women's Premiership team," McDonald said.

"With our women athletes just under two weeks from the first elite female rugby league competition commencing; the backing of Anytime Fitness is another timely boost for the Dragons' Women's Premiership squad."
