The Perth agency market gathered at East Perth Football Club on Friday to commemorate the beginning of the 2020 AFL season with Seven West Media’s annual Agency AFL 9’s challenge.
Special guests included West Coast Eagles star recruit Tim Kelly and Telethon7 mascot Fat Cat. The match was called by 7Sport’s Mark Readings and Seven Perth’s Group Sales Manager Andy Ward.
Even with the star studded support on the side lines this didn’t help the Seven West Media team, loosing to the Agency All-Stars for the third year in a row.
The Agency all-stars consisted of players from Carat, Rare, Madd Marketing, Longreach, OMD, Marketforce, AdZoo, Initiative and the Brand Agency.
Carat’s Luke Marsala was awarded best on ground and there was only one injury with Seven’s Annette Herbert injuring her knee ruling her out from what was a promising AFLW career.
SWM WA Chief Marketing Officer Kate Molinari said “We absolutely love hosting our agency partners at this event each year. AFL is a key pillar across each of our brands with the broadcast live, free and in HD on Seven, our online tipping platform The Game, and respective print lift outs THE GAME and PRE GAME coming back with a refreshed focus in 2020”.
The first telecast of the 2020 AFL season is March 19th with Richmond Vs Carlton on Seven.
