Adelaide United welcomes PH8 as official water partner


PH8 has become the official water partner for Adelaide United for the next three years.

Taken out of the pristine limestone-filtered aquifer in the body of rock and sediment that holds groundwater based in Warooka, South Australia, PH8 Natural Alkaline Water makes it possible for fast-hydration via alkaline micro water clusters and naturally electrolyte minerals.

Alkalinity defines as a term for the capacity of water to counteract an acid. As for the pH, it is a measurement scale from 0-14 that indicates the acidity of the water, pH7 is balanced with lower values with more acidic and higher values but more alkaline.

Some of the reasons why an individual drinking PH8 natural alkaline water can benefit is the purity and naturality is 100% – in that case, nothing needs to be added or removed from the water and it contains electrolyte minerals and antioxidants such as potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium, selenium and silica.

In regards to how healthy the manufacturing process, PH8 would not be the brand it is today if it wasn’t for stringent controls, as well as it is based at a place preventing any contamination from filing and storage, as for the health concerns there is zero E Coli for the moment that water is extracted from the aquifer, hence separating the required of ultraviolet treatment that kills off coliforms associated with E Coli.

Adelaide United Commercial Director, Adam Thomson, said in a statement:

“We’re very proud to have partnered with another South Australian organisation in PH8. PH8 will provide all our players with quality hydration across the next season, aiding in crucial match preparation and recovery.”

PH8 Director, Patrick Ho added via press release:

“For the team at PH8, partnering with Adelaide United was such an obvious fit, our water is local and our values are aligned with Adelaide United in terms of supporting local communities, we are looking forward to supporting the players and the broader team with premium hydration.”

Graduates congratulated after completing FIFA Diploma in Club Management program

FIFA President Gianni Infantino has congratulated the 2024 graduates of the FIFA Diploma in Club Management course at FIFA headquarters, which include former Socceroo Tim Cahill and former Manchester City player Fernandinho.

Since its launch in 2021, the FIFA Diploma in Club Management has become a networking platform for senior club executives to share knowledge about the industry insights essential for successful football club management. The 18-month course is comprised of six-course models, each covering important topics and aspects of club management.

The topics which are covered in this course are leadership and management, sporting strategy and youth academies, marketing and communication, club operations and stadium management, governance and legal matters and finance.

Infantino spoke to the attendees of the graduation ceremony in Zurich, Switzerland:

“The course’s aim was to encourage knowledge and best practice exchange to be able to ensure football’s continued growth and health worldwide,” he said in a statement.

“You understand that club football is crucial for the development and the survival of football in all countries of the world.

“That is what we have to foster and what we have to work on, and to do this, you have to be well-equipped and well-prepared, and this is our aim at FIFA: to give you this preparation, to give you this equipment, to open the doors of FIFA here in Zurich and everywhere in the world.

“Our doors are open for you to come and exchange with us, and also to exchange between yourselves.”

The graduates of the second edition of the FIFA Diploma in Club Management started back in September 2022 in New York where they attended lectures given by the likes of FIFA Chief of Global Football Development Arsène Wenger and FIFA Chief Women’s Football Officer Sarai Berman and their final project of the course was a strategy plan which was presented before the graduation.

The third edition of the program began in May 2024 and is headed by FIFA Director of Professional Football Ornella Desirée Bellia. Some of the participants who are involved include former Juventus player Giorgio Chiellini and Como 1907 coach Cesc Fàbregas alongside club owners, CEO’s and sporting directors.
