TESTIMONIALS

The quality of the kit is second to none, by far the best kit we have purchased over the last 7 years.  The feel of the material is excellent to wear and even with the rough nature of the game here, they have exceeded expectations.  If you are a club thinking about purchasing a kit, just do it, you will not be disappointed.  It may not be the lowest quote you receive but 100% satisfaction.

If it’s something that makes KonQa stand out from other suppliers and manufacturers it’s the quality of the service they provide.  They are meticulous in the planning, making and delivery of the product.  I don’t think there is any request that KonQa won’t do to help your club.  It may be a little thing, but to send out swatches of the product and a full kit of sizing – that’s customer service.

As stated above you may get lower quotes, you may have a manufacturer closer to you but without hesitation you should choose this manufacturer for your product as you won’t be disappointed.  I have an old saying I say to myself quite often….”If you buy the best of any particular product you buy….you will never be disappointed”  and by far KonQa is the best product for all your club’s needs.

President and Committee, Boulder Soccer Club, Kalgoorlie, W.A.

Choosing a playing Kit that satisfies 400 players is always a challenge, however KonQa stepped up to the task and came up with the goods and on time! They picked and packed our kits into team boxes and saved our volunteers hours of work and headache.

We Cannot thank Jon and Simon enough for their commitment, efficiency and eye for detail. They went over and above the call of duty and proved they might just love designing Kits as much as our players love wearing them!

Joanne Ciantar, President, Westside Strikers Caroline Springs FC, Victoria

As a club Willoughby Dalleys have traditionally played in kits manufactured by the larger overseas concerns. KonQa appeared to offer the club something new, the opportunity to incorporate our sponsors logos into the shirt from the word go, to design the shirt around the logo to ensure maximum sponsor satisfaction and reduce the costs and eradicate the fuss of applying heat seals to shirts.

I am very particular re service and delivery and I have to say KonQa did what they said they would. They delivered when they said they would and were always easy to get hold of and deal with. They have kept me informed pre, during and after delivery.

I would recommend them to any club that wants a responsive and attentive service and wants to deal with a company that truly understands the requirements, restrictions and time pressures that Community Clubs face.

Bob Tomasic, Treasurer  Willoughby Dalleys FC,  Sydney NSW

“I first was first introduced to KonQa when the Latrobe Valley Soccer League needed to source a playing kit for the Junior Country Championships in Bendigo in 2016. The Latrobe Valley Soccer League were extremely satisfied with our experience of KonQa. Their design of the kits was first class, they offered practical advice regarding the placement of the sponsor’s logs and their customer service was first class. So when my own club, Fortuna 60 were about to embark on purchasing new on and off field apparel I contacted KonQa immediately.

Jon and Simon drove down to meet with the Committee on a Sunday and presented what they could offer and how we might use the on and off-field to generate revenue for the club and ensure that the kits were able to generate much needed revenue for the club.

With the assistance of the team at KonQa we were able to secure an unprecedented level of interest from Sponsors for season 2017. We were able to show them EXACTLY how their logos would look on the shirt as a result of KonQa being able to supply artwork and images in double quick time.

I would have no hesitation in recommending KonQa as a true apparel PARTNER for any club looking to secure well designed, high quality kits with a high level of customer service.”

Allan Roberts, Junior Co-Ordinator and Committee Member, Fortuna 60 FC.

As a newly established club with only one team we have recently had the pleasure of dealing with KonQa Sports through Jon and Simon. Jon and Simon are both professional and very efficient. Having had a poor experience last year, we cannot recommend KonQa enough to other clubs and associations. From the first time that Jon presented to us we received excellent customer service, thorough communication supported by a great designer in Simon who is equally very thorough and flexible. Simon provided many shirt options including design changes but most importantly was a pleasure deal with. Despite our club having only 1 team we were treated with utmost respect and integrity throughout the process. Jon is very passionate about the business and this clearly came out during the process by delivering countless samples to us and ensuring that, as a committee, we were engaged through the design process, which was made so much easier with Simon’s experience.

The garments look very attractive and are of excellent quality which can be easily felt once you try them on. On behalf of St Paul’s FC, we are very fortunate to have found a business who is striving for excellence and continuous improvement and look forward to continuing our partnership going forward. KonQa clearly exceeded our expectations in every aspect. Well done Jon & Simon!

Sam Raba, Treasurer , St Pauls FC, Melbourne

I Would like to thank the team of KonQa. Jon & Simon did a great job designing our anniversary jerseys & tracksuits. I couldn’t be happier with the service I received from these guys. I highly recommend every club to jump on board.

David Lisolajski, President, Keilor Wolves SC, Victoria

Swinburne University FC has traditionally been an Adidas affiliated club, with our members and supporters appreciating the quality of their product. Unfortunately, their quality of service doesn’t match their product.

From the first enquiry email we sent KonQa, their service and support has been second to none. Every request we’ve made (even the ones that contradicted previous requests) has been completed in the agreed time frame, to the quality standard that KonQa has now built a reputation for.

It’s clear that a new trend is occurring, sporting clubs are starting to look outside the top two ‘major’ manufacturers for their club apparel, and KonQa are leading the revolution.

Nathan Bickerdike, President, Swinburne University FC, Melbourne

WITHOUT A DOUBT THE BEST FOOTBALL KIT OUR CLUB HAS EVER HAD. All the key requirements were met, Quality, Service and Affordability.

KonQa are in a very unique position that they can offer a service which your ‘big name’ brands aren’t able to OR willing to deliver to a local football club. Our first contact with KonQa was via Facebook speaking with Jon Vonk. From the very beginning Jon wanted to understand the clubs position within our association, our vision and what we our key criteria was for our football kit. A meeting was arranged within a week and Jon was more than happy to cater to a meeting outside of business hours which worked for our committee.

The ability to be able to pick up the phone and speak to someone on the spot is another major bonus and really streamlined the process.

The design process is where KonQa shine. Simon Liebelt handled all our concepts from our first idea to the final product. Every different idea was put together on concept boards within a day or two. We would have had 15-20 concepts prepared at NO additional cost. Simon has a great ambition to create designs that are going to best represent the club and KonQa. He also has a strong understanding of the current market and styles.

On top of all that, we required concepts to be put towards potential sponsors and Simon was more than happy to create these. This was most definitely a value add which we weren’t expecting and I doubt that any other supplier would be able to provide.

Finally, you aren’t going to get the cheapest kit on the market with KonQa and they themselves told us that. It is true that you ‘get what you paid for’ and thankfully much more so with the duffle bags, polos and playing kits. We strongly recommend KonQa to other teams looking for a high quality football kit, great service and a price which is fair and more than reasonable based on the final product.

Ross Burnett, Secretary/Player, North Melbourne Athletic Football Club

As Club Secretary for the last eight years, it has been my responsibility to source and purchase the team kits. We are not a big club therefore in the past we have foregone quality for price.

Along came Jon & Simon from KonQa, a new brand, a brand I knew nothing about. So I set-up a meeting with Jon and from the get go I was blown away with the quality and the price. Finally I was able to provide my players with a quality kits at a price we could afford.

Our order was not a large order however, both Jon & Simon treat me like their number one customer, always available to take my call and reply to my emails. Simon constantly keeping up with my request for changes to the designs.

We look forward the season ahead with our new kits and as the club grows so will our relationship with the team at KonQa.

From everyone at Harrisfield Hurricanes SC we would like to thank both Jon & Simon for their hard work.

At the end of 2015, Ulverstone Soccer Club began investigating the options for purchasing a new playing strip for the club teams. The committee were looking for something consistent with our club colours in a design that would be accepted by our players. As part of this process we posted on our Facebook page that we were looking to update our strip and were contacted by KonQa.
From the outset, KonQa gave a very high level of customers service, providing 12 distinct design possibilities for us to look at and offering to help with graphic design to update our logo as well. As a committee, we adapted some of these designs with the help of KonQa who made the design changes for us, including adding our new major sponsor to the designs. And we settled on a short list of 3 designs for the club members to choose from.

KonQa posted samples to us and provided a very competitive quote to supply strips for our teams.
Having looked at another mainland supplier and a local supplier, the committee agreed that we would choose KonQa to provide our strips due to their great service to that point.

During the shipping process, there were some issues with getting the kits from Melbourne to Tasmania, but Jon from KonQa worked hard to get the kits to us on time for an inter-club cup competition we wanted to use them for.

While the main freight company wasn’t terribly helpful, after a few phone calls we were able to pick the kits up the day before the cup.
Our senior men and senior women wore their strips at the club and the feedback was all positive. Our players love the design and the material, and once they found the right size commented on the fit as well.

The strips were used for 3 games on a day that hit about 30 degrees (hot for March in Tassie), and as well players from other teams commenting on them, our players mentioned how quickly they dry out after the game.

Our major sponsor, whose logo is included on the front of the strip, was also very impressed with the shirts.

A process like this takes time and without a local agent can be a real nuisance. But with KonQa, their regular communication and attention to detail made it easy!
I would highly recommend KonQa to other clubs who are looking for quality gear and great service.

Alistair Ollington, President, Ulverstone Soccer Club, Tasmania

On behalf of Galaxy United FC, I would like to thank you Jon, and Simon for the amazing service you have given us.

The KonQa quality speaks for the brand and we have been very pleased and received great feedback on the quality, look and the cut of not only our kits but our apparel as well.

As a new club playing its inaugural year in the WNPL we were ‘ a little bit green / new’ about what was required. Both Jon and Simon have been nothing short of amazing.

Being in business myself I have always judged a business more on the ‘ after sales service’ than on the before sales. Anyone can sell me something I want or need but not everyone can back it up once the money has gone in the bank. This back up is what makes sure I return year after year with more money. No after sales service and you may have my money this time but you definitely won’t see me again (or my friends)

It takes an exceptional team to answer last minute requests, to help guide us in what requirements we need, in personally delivering stock to us, even in packing all the kits in their teams (that alone saved me no end of stress and time).

KonQa (made up of Jon and Simon) are that team, although it would be amiss of me not to mention George (the accountant). The many designs that Simon has drawn for us so that we get the ‘right one’ have been great and the attention to detail from Jon is exceptional.

Many thanks to you both for helping us get four Galaxy teams on the pitch to play last weekend, in what I am proud to say is the best looking WNPL club of the year.

Tracey Kenshole,Treasurer (and Merchandise Officer), Galaxy United FC, Victoria

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the wonderful start to season 2016 for Surf Coast FC. From the initial meeting back in October 2015 with yourself and Simon (down here and not in Melbourne), where you showed Micka and I the samples for the upcoming season we could see the in depth knowledge you both had for the product and how excited you were to show us improvements in technology that will assist our players. Simon had also produced some great concept designs for us, which we were able to generate a lot of interest amongst our members in a FaceBook poll to choose the new kit.

However, above all that, your passion for simply helping community clubs like ours is invaluable. These are the “one percenters” that don’t often get noticed or recognised. The way the Konqa team discussed the product with our parents and players at our Merchandise days was first class. Also, to you Jon, seeing your car filled with jackets/tops/socks/shorts pulling into my own driveway is customer service taken to the next level. The SCFC Committee and your Konqa team may not see this, but it leaves a lasting impression.

Keep up the great work and GO COASTERS!!

Anthony Masters, Surf Coast Football Club, Victoria

As a player, a soccer administrator and a coach, wearing kits and liaising with suppliers has been something I have been doing regularly. I have to say the whole experience from first contact to delivery has been nothing short of superb with Jon and Simon at KonQa.

The designs that KonQa offered were many and varied, nothing was too much trouble, Simon even created a logo for a sponsor who was struggling for some inspiration. Again from the point of ordering and organising logos, KonQa dealt with all the sponsors directly to make sure the logo resolution was excellent giving the final finished kit such a professional finish.

When the finished goods arrived I was staggered by the quality of the material. No kidding! It’s the best I have ever worn. A really important aspect for me is the fit of the garments, which is brilliant with the KonQa shirts and shorts .We had a difficult experience with kits that were all undersized last year. The fit of these KonQa ones are great. The logos stand out so well and all the colours are really vibrant.

The socks have non slip grip on the underside and are left and right specific for a better fit on each foot. To say KonQa have exceeded my expectations is very accurate. I can highly recommend KonQa to all sporting organisations, and would be happy to chat to anyone about my positive experiences with Jon and Simon.

Cath Sattler, Surf Side Waves Soccer Club, Victoria

 

KonQa impressed us with the three things that we find important and seek within our uniform supplier – Quality, Price and Service. We pride ourselves on our Branding of the club all year round and the relationship we have with our sponsors. Our uniform is representative of our brand and we will not negotiate on the quality aspect of our uniform and Brand.  Price is important and we need to make sure that we work responsibly and within our budgetary constraints to achieve the optimal outcome.

Service is non- negotiable, the uniforms must arrive on time checked and packed in their respective teams, making it easier for us to distribute with little fuss.

In 2016 we will have over 400 players representing the club and our on field kit has become a major revenue generator for the club with us selling sponsorship on all shirts from age 6-Mens and Women’s Seniors.

KonQa were very impressive with their knowledge of the industry and their philosophy is similar to ours and recognise that Quality, Price and Service are the key ingredients to a successful business and relationships with clubs.  They understand the importance of the sponsorship dollar and acknowledge that the playing uniform needs to look as good at the end of the season as it did at the start of the season.

Hence providing sponsors a better visual through sublimation of uniforms as opposed to the conventional heat seals.

We were impressed with the design capability and flexibility that the KonQa design team possesses, which shouldn’t be too much of a surprise given we have been dealing with Simon Liebelt who has designed kits for Melbourne Heart, Central Coast Mariners and Adelaide United.

KonQa have clearly thought about the design and construction of the kits. The on field shirts are well made, light and perform well from a durability wear and tear point of view, they also have some very interesting design features all of which assisted Monash City FC to have an input to their own individual design of our apparel.

The above mentioned features and benefits are why Monash City FC have decided to appoint KonQa for 2016. All off field kit such as spray jackets, coaches’ jackets and bags are able to have an embroidered club crest which again adds to the ‘branding’ of what Monash City FC want to achieve.

We were approached by some of the larger sporting brands to supply for season 2016 but what made KonQa the preferred option for Monash City FC was Price, Quality and Service.

The shareholders of KonQa have sat on club committees of community clubs and understand there has been a gap within the industry which needed to be addressed and satisfied.

Angelo Zissis, President, Monash City SC, Victoria

As a wife of one of the ‘crew’ players I’d like to say a massive thank you to KonQa. At last, a soccer outfit that not only looks fab but washes (and irons) like a dream! With three boys to look after, you’ve made my job a lot easier. The fit & design are well thought of and the material is super light. Dealing with the KonQa team was super easy, thanks guys.

Anastasia Antoniou, The Crew Futsal Team, Victoria

They are awesome in all respects…. communication, designing everything, absolutely outstanding service and I would highly recommend to anybody chasing uniforms….. They are everything the team and I wanted. Top stuff!

Morgan Marshall, Orange Nation Indoor Hockey Team, West Australia

Our custom indoor kits just arrived and have blown me away- the design and quality is first class.From start to finish Jon made me feel like a VIP customer who was ordering 100 kits, not just 7. I will definitely be recommending to anyone I can.

Troy Harrison, Boca Seniors Futsal Team, Victoria

Big thank you from 3 Colours FC to Jon and Simon at KonQa for producing special custom small run kits for the 5 a side half time game at AAMI park on Saturday night. The kids looked great and now have a wonderful momento of the night they were all A League superstars..
