"Qantas has been a proud supporter of Australian football for over 20 years. As the official airline partner of Football Australia, we’ve flown thousands of players and fans around the world for major competitions and World Cup campaigns. We even flew the Socceroos home to Sydney from Honduras just days before they qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. As the airline that champions the Spirit of Australia, you can be sure that we support our national teams, the Socceroos and the Matildas, as much as you do.” Jo Boundy, Qantas Chief Marketing Officer.
