NPB Security is delighted to partner with Perth Heat for the 2021/2022 Summer of Baseball.
Perth Heat was founded in 1989 as one of the Australian Baseball League’s foundation teams and have gone on to become one of the country’s most successful sporting clubs.
Providing security guards for games and events held at Empire Ballpark, Perth Heat CEO Steven Nelkovski said it is great to have NPB Security onboard.
“It’s a partnership that we’ve had for 10 years, and one we are extremely proud of,” Steven said.
Attending a Perth Heat game is a fantastic experience, with the perfect environment for the whole family.
“A day at the ballpark is unique, we have a nice American theme that runs through our game day experience,” said Steven.
“It’s different to other sporting events, for example if the ball goes over the fence and you catch it, you get to keep it.
“It is a wonderful family friendly environment and the menu is a little bit different too. We like to bring through an American style of flavour to replicate what you get at Minor League ballparks in America.”
It is shaping up to be a massive summer for the Heat on and off the pitch, as they look to go one step further after finishing runners up in 2020/21, as well as celebrating the successful history of the club.
“The Perth Heat will celebrate 70 years since our first Claxton Shield Championship win in 1952. We will have a lot of promotion around the success we’ve had as an organisation and celebrate all of the great champions of the club and the state,” Steven said.
NPB Security Director, David Barrett said he was proud to continue the long running partnership.
“This was one of our first sporting partnerships when we established NPB in 2010, so we are very pleased to continue the tradition this year. It is also fantastic to see what the club are doing in the sustainability space and we’re looking forward to seeing these initiatives in action.
Perth Heat has some ambitious goals with a desire to be Australia’s most sustainable baseball team. Their objectives include a 50% reduction in plastic by 2025; moving towards a 100% digital ticketing system and playing their games in Australia’s first renewable energy powered ballpark.
David said his company recognises the important role sport has in improving the health and wellbeing of all who participate regardless of age, ability, background or gender.
“NPB Security is a huge advocate for sport, understanding the significant and positive impact it has on the community. Communities are strengthened when we come together to play sport and build a sense of belonging.”
