October 5, 2022 | Sydney Flames news

The Cygnett WNBL announced on Wednesday an exciting three-year partnership with Corporate Travel Management’s (CTM’s) specialist sports travel division, CTM Sport, that will see them come on board as a major sponsor through to 2025. 

Previously the official travel partner for Basketball Australia and the Commonwealth Games, CTM Sport is committed to ensuring that travelling WNBL parties can efficiently take their game across the country and connect the nation’s elite basketballers to their fans all around Australia. 


With the league returning to a full home and away season, all eight teams, including the Sydney Flames, will embark on further travel around the country and the head of WNBL, Christy Collier-Hill is delighted to welcome CTM Sport as an official major partner of the league as they expand their partnership with BA.

“We’re thrilled to have CTM Sport joining the WNBL for the next three seasons,” Collier-Hill said.

“They’ve been fabulous supporters of the WNBL and women’s sport in general, and we therefore have a really strong values alignment.

“To have them join us as a major partner is a step forward in the partnership, and we appreciate all their support.”

CTM Group Global chief operating officer Laura Ruffles echoed the excitement of Collier-Hill.

“It’s an exciting feeling to be in partnership with the WNBL and the awe-inspiring athletes that will be competing in the upcoming season,” Ruffles said.

“As a wholly owned Australian travel management company, our culture is deeply rooted in the unequivocal Aussie spirit of working hard and embracing opportunity, which we believe aligns strongly with the WNBL community.

“We also understand our responsibility of providing equal opportunity to all, and through our sponsorship of the WNBL it’s our goal to ensure women’s sport is widely accessible and equally celebrated by our sport-loving nation.”

The Flames’ WNBL23 season tips off on Saturday, November 12 in Bendigo before Sydney’s first home game against the Spirit on December 4.
