Optus' dedication to supporting regional communities has extended to Kempsey, with the telecommunications company becoming a major sponsor of the Macleay Valley Rangers this season.
Macleay Valley Rangers president Ashley Williams welcomed the local support and said the partnership has boosted the club's junior program.
"We now have an Optus junior recognition program in place where we identify a player from the Miniroos program each week who has put in 100 per cent and reward them," Williams told the Argus.
"The field has also been renamed to Optus Park for at least the next 12 months."
Optus Territory General Manager of the Mid North Coast Chris Simon said Optus is proud to continue their support of local communities.
"We came on board as the major sponsor of the Rangers this year because we recognise it's important to continue our support of local clubs and organisations," Simon said.
"We try to give back to the community and grassroots as much as we can. We have invested heavily throughout the region and we are committed to continuing to do so."
In partnership with Optus, the Rangers are planning to host a outdoor cinema night at Optus Park later this year.
The Rangers return home to take on the bottom placed Wauchope side in the Premier League this Saturday.
