AFLX lands title sponsor deal with realestate.com.au

The AFL Aussie rules football competition has agreed a deal for online property retailer realestate.com.au to become the title sponsor of its short-form AFLX competition.

The deal also names realestate.com.au as the Official Online Property Partner for the 2019 AFL Premiership season.

This year’s one-night-only AFLX tournament will be held at Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium on February 22 and will be contested by the Bolts, the Deadly, the Flyers and the Rampage. It will officially be known as the ‘realestate.com.au AFLX 2019’.

As part of the deal, realestate.com.au’s logo will feature on the chest area of the teams’ guernseys.

AFLX launched last year and is designed to introduce the sport to an international audience.
