Victorian netball’s high-performance teams will travel in style this year, with American Tourister on board as official luggage partner of Netball Victoria and the Melbourne Vixens and Victorian Fury.
As a trusted global luggage brand since 1933, American Tourister will provide luggage for the Melbourne Vixens across the 2021 Suncorp Super Netball season, and the Victorian Fury who will compete in the newlook Australian Netball Championships at the end of the year.
Netball Victoria’s Business Development Manager, Aaron Bosse was thrilled to welcome American Tourister to the teams.
"We're excited to be working with the team at American Tourister in season 2021. The breadth of luggage options they have available provided the team with so many fun, but also functional choices.
“Our athletes spend a lot of time in and out of airports and hotels across the course of a season, so it's important we're taking care of the simple things and providing them with the best off-court tools, so they can focus their energies on the on-court performance instead.
“American Tourister is also a fun, colourful and on-trend brand, really appealing to our younger, family-skewed audience that attend our match days, so the partnership was a real natural fit.
“We look forward to bringing some colour with this partnership and offering fans and supporters unique experiences along the way,” Bosse said.
American Tourister’s Senior Manager of Brand and New Channel Strategy, Marcio Oliveira da Silveira said “Netball is Australia’s highest participation sport for girls and women, and we’re thrilled to partner with Netball Victoria, as we believe that their athletes promote the values of sport, travel and fun”.
