Adelaide United is delighted to announce a partnership agreement with Australian high-tech manufacturing company VAILO for the next two years.
The deal will see the VAILO brand appear on the front of all three of our men’s playing shorts – home, away and third – until the end of the Isuzu UTE A-League 2022/23 season.
VAILO will further become the official Chairman’s Club Partner and official Training Ground Partner as part of this exciting new affiliation.
Offering a diverse range of LED lighting and LED visual displays, VAILO was founded in 2014 and has completed several sports lighting and display installs across the country.
The company is committed to accelerating disruptive and sustainable technologies, supported by significant investment in fully automated printed-circuit-board (PCB) manufacturing, and a suite of 3D metal and composite printers.
VAILO is bringing manufacturing back to South Australia, transitioning from importer, and thus creating jobs for the future while delivering Australian made products to the world.
The business is planning to export Australian designed and made LED lighting products commencing in 2022, with the Zenith Gen-V, VAILO’s flagship 1500W Stadium Light.
Adelaide United Commercial Director, Adam Thomson, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to welcome VAILO into the Adelaide United family for the next two years.
“VAILO is an innovative company, eager to bring back jobs in the technological industry into South Australia.
“We too are passionate about giving opportunities to local South Australians, and therefore aligning with a business like VAILO made sense as we share similar values.
“As part of this partnership, VAILO will be given naming rights of our Chairman’s Club and our training centre based at Elizabeth, giving them a platform to showcase their state of the art interactive technology.”
VAILO founder and Chief Executive Officer, Aaron Hickmann, said: “VAILO and Adelaide United Football Club share an ambition for strong cultures built on innovation that leave a legacy of inspiration and performance.
“We are proud to be a Platinum Partner, building on our history of supporting Football SA.
“Additionally, we are honoured to be the naming right partner of the VAILO Chairman’s Club at Coopers Stadium to foster football fever mixed with collaborative business networking.”
