League naming rights partnership open

AN exciting opportunity to become the naming rights partner of the AFL North Coast’s Senior men’s competition has arrived.

The AFL North Coast is offering an organisation or business a great opportunity to build strong brand awareness within the growing footy community.

Your company name could be the one that is associated with the men’s competition where it could be called for example the Google Cup or the BHP Cup.

Every week when match previews and reviews are written, your company’s name will be up in lights when the men’s matches are discussed.

And the premiership cup that the men are fighting for would be renamed with your logo placed prominently on it.

In return for your support the AFL North Coast is offering a number of promotional activations that would be seen across the footy community which last year boasted 1,191 players from the Under 10 age group up to the oldest players.

The AFL community in the region is continuing to grow. In 2023 the League’s playing numbers grew by 4.4% and will grow again this year thanks to the introduction of a new, third Youth Girls age group.

AFL in the region is played in Byron Bay, Yamba, Grafton, Woolgoolga, Coffs Harbour, Bellingen, Nambucca Heads, South West Rocks and Port Macquarie.

The AFL North Coast’s social media accounts currently have 2,196 Facebook followers and a further 943 on Instagram.

This is a large audience that your company could be reaching with its support of local footy.

Any organisation that is interested in entering a partnership with the AFL North Coast or discussing any further activation opportunities is encouraged to contact Community Football & Competition Manager Brad Greenshields at brad.greenshields@afl.com.au or on 0407 228 124.
