AUSTRALIA'S number one professional footballer, Harry Kewell has become an official partner of Ford Australia and the face of Ford Performance Vehicles.
Having recently returned to Australia and as the latest signing of local A-League team Melbourne Victory, the partnership marks the pairing of two of Australia's high performance athletes.

Often regarded as Australia's finest football export, Kewell's skill on the field has been highly sought after having played internationally as a part of the Socceroos since 1996 and in the European league for Galatasaray in Turkey and Leeds and Liverpool in the United Kingdom before returning home to sign with Melbourne Victory. .
The matching of Kewell with Ford's performance brand makes the partnership the perfect sporting marriage.
"I have always loved V8 racing and for me FPV offers the ultimate performance range of cars to take on the world," Kewell said.
