Thousands of Nike footballs have been distributed free of charge to Queensland clubs thanks to Football Queensland’s official match ball partner, Ultra Football.
The ground-breaking partnership between FQ and Ultra Football, announced in December 2020, has delivered hundreds of thousands of dollars of value to clubs across the state.
“This innovative Queensland-wide partnership has provided free balls to hundreds of clubs from Mt Isa to Mackay to Moreton Bay,” said FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci.
“Nike is the official competition ball for the National Premier Leagues Queensland and the Football Queensland Premier League in 2021, but this partnership also provides direct benefits to grassroots clubs.
“We consulted with clubs across the state and Nike was clearly the preferred ball, so it has been great to see so many clubs from all levels of the game receiving their Nike balls from Ultra Football.
“This is a great example of Football Queensland negotiating on behalf of the state to deliver a positive outcome for Queensland clubs.
“Football Queensland is delivering on its strategic objective to provide greater resources for our clubs and high-quality participation experiences for players no matter their level or geographic location.”
Ultra Football General Manager Matthew Adams said he was proud to partner with FQ to deliver footballs to clubs throughout Queensland.
“Over the past few months Ultra Football has dispatched hundreds of orders to clubs and the feedback so far has been terrific,” said Adams.
“We are proud to supply the official match balls for the NPL and FQPL competitions as well as to grassroots clubs across the state.”
