Put Some Extra Bounce in Your Marketing Strategy

Maitland Basketball Association (MBA) has a very proud history in the Maitland region. MBA started in James Street, Maitland behind the current site of the Maitland Regional Art Gallery in 1957. 

 

From this humble beginning we have grown

to be one of the premier Basketball Associations in Country NSW.

 

In 2000, we moved into the Maitland Federation Centre (MFC) at Bent Street, Maitland. MFC is the Hunter’s premier indoor sporting facility. While Basketball is a key focus of the facility, MFC has more than 40,000 people come through its doors

each year to attend both sporting and non-sporting events.

 

Since 2000, MFC has hosted dozens of yearly and one off sporting events including:

 

  • National U’14 Basketball Club Championships

  • National U’20 Basketball Championships

  • Basketball NSW Referee Action Days

  • NSW Basketball Country Championships

  • NSW Waratah Basketball Championships Grand Final series

  • PSSA & Independent Schools Basketball & Netball Gala Days

  • Netball Disability Skills Gala Days

  • NSW Sport & Recreation Coaching Clinics

  • Maitland Futsal Competitions

  • Northern NSW Futsal Championships

  • NIB Festival of Sport Netball Tournaments

  • Cheerleading Tournaments

  • Hunter Boccia Tournaments

  • Karate Tournaments

  • Boxing Exhibitions

 

Each week several Maitland primary & secondary schools also use our facility for school sports programs, encouraging our future generations to stay active and be healthy.

 

In addition to sporting events, MFC hosts a number of non-sporting events including:

 

  • Questacon – The National Science & Technology Centre

  • Lower Hunter Vocational Education Annual Careers Market

  • End of Year School Presentation Days

  • Maitland Steamfest Exhibitions

  • MFC has even been used to host children’s birthday parties!!

 

MFC is also the home of the Maitland Mustangs and both our Junior & Senior Basketball teams play in state-wide competitions on a yearly basis, bringing competitors from all over NSW to our great facility.

 

Maitland City Council data has also shown that single events run at MFC bring in over $2.25M of additional revenue to the Maitland economy.

You could be part of that EXPOSURE

As noted above, the MFC plays host to a significant number of weekly, monthly, and

yearly events where people from Maitland, the Hunter, NSW and even across all of Australia come into our facility to enjoy sports or other cultural and community events. This is where your business’ opportunity lies to put some “EXTRA BOUNCE” in your marketing strategy and get exposed to this significant volume of people.
