Burley have worked closely with the PFL to design a commemorative 100 year football. The retro design includes a timeline of the league, the PFL 100 year logo and the names of all 300 clubs to have competed in the amateur league.
Burley Sekem WAFL and South Australian National Football League Sales and Sponsorship Manager Glen Metherell said the ball was designed to best capture and celebrate the history of the PFL.
“We’ve honoured the heritage with a bit of a timeline of the league and then also put every single club that’s ever been a member of the PFL on there as well,” he said.
The ball, which is available for purchase by the public, provides a great reminder of how footballs looked around the time of the start of the PFL.
“Basically we dyed the leather to more of an older style-looking leather,” Mr Metherell said. “The footballs used today are obviously a very bright red and a very bright yellow, so this is more of a beige tan that they used to have back in the day.
“We’ve branded it with an old school Burley logo, which is one of the originals logos from back in the day.”
Burley have been proud sponsors of the PFL on and off for the past 100 years.
“We’re proud to be associated with the PFL as a long-term sponsor, and we’re about excited about their 100th year,” he said.
