NAB renews naming deal with Women’s AFL

The National Australia Bank (NAB) has extended its Premier Partner deal with the Australian Football League women’s competition until 2022.

The deal gives NAB naming rights to the league, a role it acquired when the AFL Women’s league launched in February 2017.

NAB is also a naming rights partner of the AFL Auskick, the AFL and AFLW Rising Star programmes.

Rachel Slade, chief customer experience officer at NAB, said: “We are committed to growing the game at all levels and making it a better game for all Australians.

“The AFLW is a powerful example of how NAB is supporting community initiatives to advance gender equality.”

According to the AFL, female players now account for 32 per cent of all AFL players in Australia.
