Essendon Football Club is kicking goals on and off-field, today announcing that travel luggage specialist, Antler Luggage, has come on board as a Platinum sponsor.


Antler Luggage Director, Sonney Roth, said the company is very proud to be associated with Essendon.

Essendon is a powerful organisation and to be able to network and create business opportunities that will benefit both parties is a great opportunity,” Mr Roth said.

“Antler Luggage has a very rich heritage which dates back to 1920 and, since I am a life-long supporter of Essendon, my decision to become a Platinum sponsor was easy.


“My passion and enthusiasm for the club still runs deep and to support a new era, which is about to begin, is exciting.""


Mr Roth said Antler Luggage - which carries a 7 year international warranty - have three key hallmarks which match well with Essendon: innovation, quality and style.


Antler Luggage’s new product range for 2008 will include the world's lightest luggage.
