Competing at state league level on a tight budget is a challenge for the Romano Group Tweed Heads Seagulls and we could not do it without the generous support of our sponsor group.

And we’d like to take this opportunity to thank them for backing the Seagulls in 2017 and we encourage all Gulls supporters and members to support them.

At the top of the list is the Romano Group who are the club’s naming rights sponsor for the third year.

Bap Romano is a former Seagulls player who wanted to give back to his sport, and his league roots, and the Seagulls have been fortunate and privileged to have his support.

“Bap and Romano are a great success story as a prominent figure in many areas of development in south-east Queensland, from residential to large commercial projects,” said Seagulls CEO Scott Clark.

“Yet he has retained his love of rugby league and he was a handy player who for three seasons now has supported his old club in a major way which has been extremely valuable for this club.

“We couldn’t survive without the sponsor support we receive, especially in such a competitive state league competition against clubs who have more resources than us.”

The Romano Group has been responsible for building industrial, residential and commercial property in south-east Queensland for over 48 years, having completed hundreds of projects from commercial precincts to residential estates and government constructions.

Robson and Robson Property Group have come aboard as a back of jersey sponsor this season and are active in their support of the club and providing assistance to our members and supporters who may be considering investing in property.

SEE Civil are also a back of jersey (lower) sponsor. SEEE Civil is a civil construction company that has been in business for over 25 years as an Australian-owned civil construction business. The group of companies consists of SEE Civil Pty Ltd, Quarry Solutions, RockBlock and Greenview Developments.

McGrath Real Estate agents have also come aboard this season and they need little introduction as one of the leading real estate entities in the country, renowned for their innovation and success.

In coming weeks, we will profile some of our major sponsors.

Our other major corporate supporters include:

Espresso Essential, a Burleigh Heads-based company which specialises in commercial coffee machines and accessories.
