IT'S A SPONSOR EXODUS

Supermarket giant Aldi becomes latest major sponsor to not renew its partnership with Foodball Federation Australia (FFA) after its contract expired at the end of 2019.

Aldi already invested more than $10.4 million over the last three years and decided to not continue.

This news comes just after petroleum brand Caltex ended its title sponsorship of the men's national team. And also after the National Australia Bank ended its 15-year relationship.

Alfa Romeo initially secured title rights to the Formula One team in a deal with Sauber Motorsport in 2018.
