Amendments to Policy for International Team Uniforms

Following final feedback sessions at the Summer Festival three changes to the ABF Uniform Policy have been approved.

Feedback

Feedback has been received from web comments, general comments and feedback sessions at the Summer Festival as follows:

  1. The majority of players are happy with the decision to replace the Australian Coat of Arms with the ABF Logo, with a minority wishing to keep the COA.
  1. Players feel that separate attire for the Opening and Closing Ceremony is unnecessary. Playing shirts can be worn.

Action: References to ties, scarves and white shirts/blouses have been deleted from the Policy.

  1. Standardisation on one colour is preferable so the shirts may be used over multiple years.

Action: The Policy has been changed to reflect that we will standardise on one colour for the next 5 years

  1. In addition, players gave preferences for cotton fabrics not polyester, no names on the back of shirts, possibly flag on one sleeve and ABF logo on the other, and other design issues. These preferences will be considered when the detailed design is chosen.

Operational Considerations

It is undesirable for the ABF to purchase a large number of shirts and then on sell them to Players because this ties up capital and makes extra work for the ABF Secretariat.

Action: The policy has been changed to reflect that the ABF Secretariat will assist with the purchase from a chosen manufacturer
