JLT Australia partners with AFL in major sponsorship agreement

07 December 2016

JLT Australia named as the premier partner for AFL pre-season, now known as the 2017 JLT Community Series

Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group (JLT), one of the world’s leading specialty-focused providers of insurance, reinsurance and employee benefits related advice, brokerage and associated services, is delighted to announce its official partnership with the Australian Football League (AFL).

JLT is the National Insurance Broker for the AFL and has held this relationship for more than a decade. The company has been an important contributor to the game at a grass roots level and is the driving force behind the National Risk and Protection program for community football leagues across Australia. JLT's services protect players, volunteers and clubs across the 18 AFL Clubs, State Associations and Leagues.  

JLT Australia supports communities nationally, whether on the field or off the field in everyday lives. The JLT Community Series will take AFL games to many more locations across the country where fans can see their favourite stars up close.

"JLT Australia is proud to be associated with a game that is loved by Australians of all ages and walks of life, strengthening the bonds and communities that unite us all," said Leo Demer, CEO of JLT Australia and New Zealand. "We are delighted to raise the level of our partnership with the AFL to bring the excitement of the game to regional and suburban grounds across Australia that don't normally host AFL matches during the Premiership Season. This exciting opportunity reflects our role in supporting and protecting players in their communities, no matter where the game is played."

JLT Australia is a specialist insurance broker, with JLT Sport providing insurance and risk management services for Australia's passionate sporting community. With over 30 years' specialist insight in sport, JLT is committed to creating safer sporting environments across Australia. JLT supports sport at all levels, cheering on athletes and the many communities that continue to inspire the spirit of Australia.
