The AFL has welcomed realestate.com.au on board as the official online property partner for the 2019 Toyota AFL Premiership Season.
In addition to the official online property partner of the AFL, realestate.com.au will also be the naming rights partner for AFLX 2019.
The one night only realestate.com.au AFLX 2019 tournament at Marvel Stadium will take place on Friday February 22 and will see four teams, the BOLTS, the DEADLY, the FLYERS and the RAMPAGE, compete.
The guernsey designs for each team have now been revealed and will feature the realestate.com.au logo on the chest of each player in the 2019 tournament.
AFL General Manager Football Operations, Steve Hocking, said he was pleased to reveal the partnership with Australia’s #1 place for property.
“We’re pleased to welcome realestate.com.au as an official partner for the 2019 Toyota AFL Premiership Season and to help us showcase AFLX 2019, with superstar players set to take to the Marvel Stadium rectangular field on February 22,” Mr Hocking said.
REA Group CEO, Owen Wilson, said he was incredibly excited to partner with the AFL to bring together two of Australia’s great obsessions, sport and property.
“For many Australians, property really has become the other Saturday game,” he said.
“They’re either bidding at auctions or searching for property with realestate.com.au in the morning and enjoying the AFL in the afternoon.
“People are increasingly interacting with sport and property through digital platforms.
“This partnership brings together Australia’s #1 place for property and the country’s #1 sport,” Mr Wilson said.
Played on a rectangular field and showcasing the most thrilling elements of the game, the realestate.com.au AFLX teams will be led by captains Eddie Betts (DEADLY), Patrick Dangerfield (BOLTS), Nat Fyfe (FLYERS) and Jack Riewoldt (RAMPAGE).
