The AFL has today entered a 10-year strategic partnership with global sports and entertainment leader TGI Sport.
The AFL and TGI will deliver fans a brand new at match experience via new and innovative LED signage, digital screen and fan engagement offerings at both the MCG and Marvel Stadium.
The strategic partnership allows the AFL to take back control of the match day signage inventory delivering a consistent experience, delivering better commercial outcomes for clubs and world class leading advertising innovation for Commercial Partners and advertisers. 
Over the period there are commitments to advance the innovation and technology offering as well as installing new perimeter screens at both stadiums.
With more than 20 years’ experience and knowledge within the global sporting arena TGI Sport have international experience across the NBA, NFL, MLS, FIFA, UEFA, F1 and ICC, as well with major domestic sporting codes. 
Enabled by technology, experience, data and insight TGI Sport have more than 20km of LED perimeter signage boards in play worldwide and are well placed to deploy the latest technology to enhance the fan experience and deliver commercial growth.
The announcement comes after an 18-month tender process and strategic review of the AFL’s in-stadium signage and content offering with the new partnership to be officially implemented from the start of the 2025 Toyota AFL Premiership Season.
AFL Executive General Manager Customer and Commercial Kylie Rogers said the long-term partnership is ultimately going to give fans the best in stadium experience possible.
“We are really excited to be able to partner with TGI Sport and tap into the expertise and innovation that they are delivering on a global scale,” Ms Rogers said.
“The new long-term strategic partnership enables the AFL to really control our own destiny in this space, which will not only deliver a world class in stadium offering for fans but maximise the financial return for our clubs.
“I want to welcome Global CEO Martin Jolly and the TGI Sport team into the AFL family, and we look forward to reimagining the fan experience together.
“On behalf of the AFL, I also want to thank Matt Connell and the MKTG Sports & Entertainment team, who have been and will continue to be our signage and content partner through the end of 2024. MKTG have been a longterm partner of the AFL and, in that time, have consistently delivered an excellent product for the AFL, our Commercial Partners, our venues and our fans.”
