Additionally, the Mavericks will actively support the Hyundai Help for Kids initiative, which aims to positively impact the lives of children in need. Through collaborative efforts, both brands will create meaningful opportunities and experiences for young individuals in the community, reinforcing their shared dedication to making a lasting difference.

"We are thrilled to welcome Hyundai to the Melbourne Mavericks family as our official automotive partner," said Richard Simkiss, CEO of SEN Teams.
