When the Caltex Socceroos and Westfield Matildas take on the world this year, it is only fair that Football Federation Australia (FFA) lets their players put their best sartorial leg forward. Refined Australian brand, SABA have been announced as the official formal outfitters for the FFA, choosing the sharpest tailoring crafted from the finest wools for the sleek and sharp new uniform.
The announcement solidifies an optimistic outlook for SABA, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2015. Working with Australia’s greatest footballers and talent, the brand is set for a stellar 2016.
CEO of APG & Co (SABA), Adrian Jones, spoke of the sporting partnership, which is a first for the brand:
“It’s with great excitement that we announce this partnership with the FFA. SABA has championed excellence in tailoring with a modern edge for over 50 years. We’re thrilled to share our SABA style with two of Australia’s most exciting teams, to help them look their best when competing on the world stage”.
“The Caltex Socceroos and Westfield Matildas are premium sporting teams that unify all of Australia and this alignment with a brand like SABA is a tremendous fit and good news for FFA,” said FFA CEO David Gallop.
“We welcome SABA to the Football Family and we look forward to working closely with them through the Socceroos and Matildas in the coming years.”
SABA’s support of both the Caltex Socceroos and Westfield Matildas will extend over the next four years.
