Football Federation Australia received a boost today with one of Australia-s leading vitamin brands, Cenovis, forming a major partnership to support the Socceroos as the official vitamin partner.

“The timing of this partnership comes as football is enjoying unprecedented popularity and is a sign of our presence in the mainstream of Australian society.”

Luke Fitzgerald, Director of Sanofi Consumer Healthcare, the makers of Cenovis said the partnership was the most exciting in the brand-s history.
“Cenovis has been supporting Australian families with great quality products for more than 70 years,” he said.
“Those same great products will now support the entire Socceroos family as they gear up for Brazil and beyond, and that-s something we are immensely proud of.
“We are also proud to be supporting the sport. Football is hugely popular with Australian families and is one of the fastest growing sports among youngsters nationwide.
“Our partnership with the Socceroos marks an ambitious direction for Cenovis that will cement the brand front and centre within the family vitamin segment.”
The partnership will see Cenovis customers and consumers offered exciting opportunities to support the Socceroos.
