Football Queensland has today announced a five-year partnership with iconic international sports brand Kappa as its official apparel partner from 2024.
The new partnership reinforces Kappa’s enduring support for football in Queensland following their seven years as the state governing body’s preferred apparel supplier.
“Football Queensland is incredibly excited to announce Kappa as our official apparel partner for the next five years following a competitive tender process which saw us receive 20 expressions of interest and 15 submissions of an extremely high quality,” FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci said.
“In their seven years as a Football Queensland partner, Kappa has provided fantastic support to Football Queensland, our clubs and the wider football community thanks to their quality of apparel, ability to deliver on their promises and the team’s unwavering commitment to customer service.
“Demonstrating their passion for our beautiful game, Kappa has also made a significant investment in football through their support of tournaments including the Kappa Women’s Super Cup and Kappa Pro Series, with this support to continue through the new partnership into 2024 and beyond.
“We’ve built a wonderful working relationship with the team at Kappa thanks to their willingness to go above and beyond to deliver outcomes for our organisation and our game, and we’re delighted to continue working in partnership with them from next year.”
“Kappa is a strong supporter of football in Queensland and has been proud to invest in the game since the partnership with Football Queensland began in 2017,” Kappa Australia Director Ze’ev Bogaty said.
“Some highlights of the partnership have included the development of the teal shirt for first year referees, witnessing Queensland state sides dominate on the national stage in Kappa kit, and the launch of the Kappa Women’s Super Cup and Kappa Pro Series tournaments.
“As we embark on another five years as the state’s official apparel partner and continue our close working relationship with Football Queensland, we look forward to contributing even more to the growth and success of football across the state.”
