333D, an Australian 3D printing company, has signed an official licensing agreement with the Football Federation Australia (FFA). As per the agreement, 333D will 3D print, distribute, and sell official FFA merchandise (specifically, 3D printed player figurines).

333D's 3D printed player figurines for the AFL

The Melbourne-based company, formerly known as 3D Group, is somewhat experienced in the production of 3D printed sporting merchandise, as it has collaborated with the Australia Football League (AFL), Australia's version of the NFL, to produce 3D printed player figurines, special edition medallions and coins, and more.

333D also recently obtained an official license from Cricket Australia through which it is selling 3D printed bobblehead figures based on professional cricket players. These were launched at the fourth Ashes test at the MCG stadium—not that Australians needed any more reason to be cheerful during their comprehensive series win over England.

Through the recent licensing agreement with the FFA, 333D will now be able to produce soccer-related merchandise with official FFA branding, as well as the Hyundai A League, Australian National Men’s, and Australian National Women’s football teams logos.

The company says its new 3D printed FFA products will include player bobbleheads that will be featured on 333D’s Mini League product range.

What 333D’s recent ventures seem to demonstrate is that 3D printed sporting merch is really taking off with the Aussies. Personally, I’d happily start collecting 3D printed player figurines over trading cards, if only to have Tim Cahill's oversized head nodding at me all day.
