Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) today unveiled the organisation’s new visual identity at the 2019 Premier Competitions Launch at The Home of Football – Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility. The new logo is aligned with Football Federation Australia’s (FFA) new visual identity, which will be expanded throughout the code.
NNSWF Chief Executive Officer, David Eland stated the new visual identity aims to further connect football in Northern NSW with the code Nationally including the professional leagues, other Member Federations and FFA.
“Today’s unveiling follows the successful rebrand of the Hyundai A-League, Westfield W-League and Foxtel Y-League for the 2017/18 season and FFA’s new logo in September 2018,” Mr Eland said.
“The visual identity is based on three key elements – atmosphere, diversity and unity. The consistent utilisation of the brand throughout our game will encourage and promote these elements, which are unique to the Nation’s largest sport.”
Alongside the new visual identity, NNSWF also celebrated the 135th season of Football in the Region by revealing the 2019 NPL NNSW Premiers Medal.
“Northern NSW Football remains committed to celebrating and acknowledging our sport’s extensive and illustrious history,” Mr Eland continued.
“The medallion design is a replica of the premiers medal presented to Hewitt Poole Willoughby, when the Region’s first football club, the Minmi Rangers won the Premiership in 1905.”
The three premier competitions kick off this week, with the NPL NNSW kicking off on Thursday, with Charlestown City Blues taking on the Newcastle Jets Youth at Lisle Carr Oval.
