Jedinak said, “I grew up watching the World Cup and I remember being so inspired by their passion for the sport. I fell in love with football watching them play on the TV, so it’s great to be partnering with Hisense to help inspire the next generation of Australian soccer stars,”

Perry commented, “It’s been a long four years since the last World Cup and I can’t believe Russia is finally upon us. Football is an incredibly rewarding sport – to play and to watch – and I’m looking forward to collaborating with Hisense to help bring the sport and the World Cup to Australians around the country.”
