Press Release:

British sports brand Mitre has signed a two year sponsorship deal with Fulham FC and Australia goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer.



As part of the deal, Mitre will provide Schwarzer with bespoke Mitre gloves and boots, both featuring his name, until 2011. Schwarzer worked closely with Mitre designers to ensure the gloves and boots incorporate the correct blend of comfort, aesthetics and technology.

The Australian number one was named Fulham`s player of the year for the 2008-2009 season after signing on with The Cottagers in the summer of 2008. To add to his accolades he was also named as the 2009 Australian Player of the Year after completing seven World Cup qualifiers without conceding a goal.



Mark Schwarzer said: 'I am thrilled to be part of the Mitre family, they have a great tradition in football and I look forward to working with them over the next two years. I have enjoyed working closely with their design and technical teams on these fantastic goalkeepers gloves and football boots, I have never had a pair of boots with my name and signature on, they are superb'.



Gary Hibbert, Managing Director of Mitre, said: 'We are excited and proud to have such a high calibre goalkeeper on board with the brand, and look forward to watching him represent his country at the 2010 World Cup next year. He has not only been a key player for the Socceroos this year but he also had a fantastic season at Fulham FC, being honoured with Fulham Player of the Year 08/09, which shows his outstanding achievements at the club'.

I think this might mean a one year FFC contract extention. For me, he has been priceless to us, done more in one season than VDS did in about four in my opinion.
