According to the Football Federation Australia website: Nike has reinforced its commitment to the future of Australian football, announcing an 11-year deal with Football Federation Australia (FFA), cementing a 20-year partnership.

The deal not only signifies the largest single commitment of term and financial contribution between an Australian national sporting team and an apparel manufacturer, it is also the largest guaranteed sponsorship investment for the FFA since its inception in 2004.
