Football Federation Australia (FFA) have launched a marketing campaign ahead of the upcoming A-League season, set to kick off in just over a week.
The campaign is titled: “You’ve Gotta Have a Team”.
FFA’s latest rallying cry is calling upon the millions of people involved in football in Australia to extend their support to the A-League.
The statement reads as follows, and can be found in full on the A-League website.
The Hyundai A-League is the ultimate expression of the passion, excitement and belonging that is unique to football.
The colours are your colours. The triumphs are yours to share in euphoria with true believers. The defeats, the bitter defeats, form the unbreakable bonds between fans and team.
You might love a team in Europe or Asia and a team in your suburb, but there’s a place for you to have an A-League team. But which one?
If football gets your pulse racing, and it does for more than two million Australians, it’s time to make your football heartbeat that much stronger.
If you already have a team, then we encourage you to get your family and friends to support a team.
The Hyundai A-League 2016/17 Season. You’ve Gotta Have a Team.
