Internet and cloud-gaming company Pentanet has secured a sponsorship deal with West Perth Football Club, in a bid to create a space for esports.

The HBF Arena Joondalup Oval has been renamed Pentanet Stadium as the telecommunications company seeks to reactivate the northern suburbs’ sporting ground.

The name change is part of Pentanet’s two-year principal partner sponsorship with the West Perth Football Club.

Pentanet is also aiming to create a space for esports and a digital future by engaging schools and the local community.

Pentanet managing director Stephen Cornish said every telecommunications provider needed its own sporting ground.

“Joondalup is home to the very first tower Pentanet built, so we are delighted to increase our involvement in a community that’s supported us from day one,” he said.

Pentanet is a grassroots WA business and local team and we’re proud to be supporting a fantastic club like the Falcons at a homeground in our local stomping ground and being able to stay connected with our community.”

West Perth FC president Neale Fong said the stadium’s internet was already powered by Pentanet.

“We have no doubt there will be a positive impact on the community through this partnership, with the chance to have more kids involved in football and with the club,” he said.

West Perth FC chief executive Joe McCarthy said partnerships, including this deal with Pentanet, were the "backbone of WALF clubs".

“Seeing businesses getting back to grassroots is a big deal for us at West Perth Football Club, and with 8,000 kids in local junior programs, we can’t wait to see thousands of Pentanet logos flying around the skies this season," he said.
