Designs on Aussie Champion and Premier teams

The first season of the Australian elite competition, the Hyundai A-League, will conclude on Sunday, 5 March 2006, with its first Grand Final. The design of the first Champions Cup to be won at that game will be selected from submissions made to Football Federation Australia by PROdesign (Qld), D3 Design (NSW), Fingo (SA), Form Designs Australia (WA) and Charlwood Design (VIC). All are highly credentialed design houses, with Charlwood Design for example, being the agency behind the design of the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Game’s Queen’s Baton Relay.

The team that finishes at the top of the Hyundai A-League after round 21 - prior to the Final Four play-offs - will be deemed ‘Premiers’ and will receive the Premiers Plate award. The annual Hyundai A-League Champion and Premier teams are expected to represent Australia in the Asian Champions League from 2007 onwards.
