Sponsorship Media

AUSFIFA engages in corporate sponsorships and from time to time it is required that we present media to the AUSFIFA users representing these sponsors. Whilst we encourage users to express their opinions, directly slandering or abusing sponsors of AUSFIFA will result in comment removal as they help provide the means unto which AUSFIFA operates. It takes considerable funding to provide these resources and it's all done for you, the member, so we ask that you show suitable respect to those working to support us. If you have any legitimate cause for concern, we are happy to discuss the issue via direct message on the site or by emailing business@AUSFIFA.com.
