The AFL, in conjunction with Melbourne Stadium Limited the operator of Etihad Stadium, is pleased to announce Simply Energy as their Official Energy Partner for the next three years.
Simply Energy will supply Etihad Stadium with gas and electricity, as they also help to power the passion of footy fans.
The Simply Energy Scream-A-Meter will allow fans to capture their energy for their team and then show their family and friends their passion via their social media channels.
AFL General Manager Commercial Kylie Rogers welcomed the partnership as the first in conjunction with Etihad Stadium.
“At the AFL, we love to see energetic fans getting behind their teams every week and it’s great to have Simply Energy on board as they help to power up fans’ passion,” Ms Rogers said.
“The Simply Energy Scream-A-Meter within Etihad Stadium will be a fun test for fans to gauge their passion, launching this weekend aligned to the AFL Super Round.”
Etihad Stadium CEO Michael Green says, “We are delighted to have Simply Energy as a partner to power the world’s busiest multi-purpose stadium.”
