"We're thrilled to announce C.ex Group will continue as the naming rights sponsor of C.ex Coffs International Stadium,” Coffs Harbour Mayor Denise Knight said.
"Once again, it's great that the stadium will carry the name of a local, Coffs-grown enterprise - an organisation that plays such an integral role in the Coffs Coast community.
"What was clear - and very positive - was that there was a really high level of interest from the local business community in supporting the stadium and the ongoing work that council's team do in attracting sporting groups and events to the Coffs Coast,” the council's general manager Steve McGrath said.
"Sports tourism has an estimated economic benefit locally of $30 million annually and the C.ex Group is known to be very supportive of sporting groups and sports tourism in general
"We are delighted to extend and build on the excellent partnerships built over the last five years.”
C.ex Group chairman David Doyle said they are delighted to continue the partnership with council.
"The stadium supports the group's community involvement and the first class venue fits well with our brand in providing a world class surface for the local community and visiting sporting groups,” he said.
