AFL Europe and Royal Brunei Airlines part ways

AFL Europe can confirm that in consultation with Royal Brunei Airlines, we have decided to end our partnership with the airline carrier.

Neither the AFL nor AFL Europe endorse the harsh and discriminatory cultural laws that exist in some countries, but nor do we hold companies that operate from those countries accountable for the policies of their governing authorities.

However, AFL Europe and Royal Brunei Airlines have jointly determined that it is appropriate to end the arrangement because of recent concerns.

AFL Europe entered into the partnership earlier this year as part of efforts to further its aim to nurture Australian Football in Europe, and also to provide opportunities for European players to participate recently in the 2014 International Cup in Melbourne.
