NSWFRA match officials will be sporting a new look this season with Umbro selected as the Association's equipment and apparel supplier for the 2018/19 futsal season.

Selected after an extensive process undertaken over a number of months the new equipment and apparel range features an Australian first of its kind custom referee kit from Umbro with a combination of classic and distinctive colours for the NSWFRA's Football NSW Futsal Premier League referees.

Distributed in Australia by the Sydney based Pro Football Group in partnership with Rebel Sport, Umbro is an iconic football brand worn at all levels of the sport including in the English Premier League, A-League, National Premier Leagues Football and the Football NSW Futsal Premier League.

NSWFRA President Scott Kidson said the new Umbro equipment and apparel had allowed the Association to increase its professionalism for its representative referees for the upcoming season.

"For the first time this season we have been able to supply an entire range of on and off-pitch apparel to our Futsal Premier League referees as well as update our training equipment which increases the professionalism of how we present on match days.

"Sourcing the right apparel and equipment for referees can be a difficult task but thanks to Umbro and Pro Football Group we've been able to find a solution which is well and truly fit for purpose this season.

Pro Football Group Business Development Manager Rob Davey said: "our company's well-established presence in the Australian Football Market, which included previously supplying referee apparel/equipment for the A-League, ensured the NSWFRA had a high-quality kit for the upcoming season on and off the field."

"Referees are an important part of the sport and we're pleased to be working with NSWFRA this season and look forward to building on this partnership for years to come."

The Football NSW Futsal Premier Leagues commence on Saturday 29 September 2018.
