Football Australia, Qantas Renew Partnership After Pandemic Pause
Football Australia and Qantas have announced the renewal of their partnership, with Qantas continuing to be the official airline of Football Australia’s two senior national teams, the Subway Socceroos and CommBank Matildas, as well as the Australia Cup for the next three years.
This announcement comes after a brief pandemic pause, and the partnership extension is a significant commercial milestone for Football Australia, with Qantas being one of the most iconic brands in Australia.
Commenting on the partnership, Football Australia CEO, James Johnson, said: “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.”
“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 been an essential partner of Football Australia and Australian football for many years, and we are delighted to continue our partnership for the next three years.
“Our partnership extension will allow Qantas to maintain its position as a leader in these areas, in partnership with Football Australia,” he said.
Qantas Group chief customer officer, Markus Svensson, added: “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.”
Qantas has been a proud partner of the Subway Socceroos since 2004, and this renewed partnership will see Qantas continue to champion the two senior national teams to raise the profile of Australian football both locally and abroad.
