Right from the top I have to admit I am a big Melbourne Football Club fan and I left these images to post until today hoping that I could put them up after a good 1st round win which might have been a bit optimistic!
I had the pleasure of documenting the AFL Season Launch hosted by the Melbourne Football Club on Friday 20th and before that photographing the press conference to announce the new sponsorship deal with Kaspersky lab. It was a great day with some of the biggest names in the AFL in attendance, the room was full with about 600 corporates and sponsors and there was a bit of a buzz around the room in anticipation of the start of a new season.
There were two panels that discussed the big topics in football at the moment, one being the media panel and the other the presidents panel both were highly informative and very interesting to listen to. As you would expect being hosted by the Demons they were discussed at length and although we haven’t been travelling all that well the past few years things are really starting to look good on and off the field over the next couple of years.
enjoy the photos and Go Dees!

Gary Lyon was the compare for the day and did a great job.
The media panel.
The presidents panel was the highlight and would have been well worth the ticket price alone.
The day finished off with a quick speech from the big boss Andrew Dimitrio.
