Diamonds ‘disappointed’ to learn of Hancock Prospecting’s sponsorship withdrawal

Diamonds players have expressed their disappointment in Hancock Prospecting’s decision to withdraw from their three-year, $15 million partnership with Netball Australia.

In a statement released by the athletes, they say they understand the investment from Gina Rinehart and her major mining business would have made a significant impact on the sport and its high-performance program.

In response to Hancock’s decision and the increasing scrutiny the team has copped from members of the public for being “ungrateful” in their negotiations around the terms of the deal, Diamonds players have shared their side of the story to try and clarify any misconceptions.

“Reports of a protest on the part of the players on environmental grounds and a split within the playing group are incorrect.
