March 27 – Football Australia has landed a further three-years of Qantas sponsorship for its men’s and women’s national teams and the Australia Cup.
Qantas has been a partner of the men’s team since 2004, later expanding its deal for the women’s team. The sponsorship was paused during the pandemic.
The Australia Cup is the federation’s main Cup competition with over 770 clubs entered in 2023.
“Football Australia is excited to renew its partnership with Qantas, which extends beyond two decades. Qantas is a key partner for us, and we are grateful for their ongoing support of Australian football,” said Football Australia CEO, James Johnson.
“Our partnership with Qantas has allowed us to take the best of Australian football to the world, and we are thrilled to continue working together to grow the game for all Australians.”
Qantas has long been a partner of Australian sport and is particularly focussed on “championing the values of inclusion and diversity in the true spirit of Australia.”
Qantas Group Chief Customer Officer Markus Svensson said: “As the national carrier, we’re excited to be continuing our support of Football Australia to help showcase our athletes on the world stage and also inspire a new generation of Socceroos and Matildas to represent Australia at the highest level.”
No value was given for the renewal.
