AFL Europe is excited to announce that they will continue their partnership with Belushi’s Bars & St Christopher’s Inns in 2019. Now into its second year, this partnership will help continue to promote and develop Australian Football in Europe.
With five bars spread over London and 21 hostels across Europe, Belushi’s Bars and St Christopher’s Inns are one of Europe’s leading accommodation venues that host a variety of Australian and international events.
As part of the partnership, Belushi’s Bars will show weekly AFL matches at their various venues around Europe, whilst St Christopher’s Inns will also be the accommodation partner for the European Championships hosted in London this coming October. With hostels and bars across the continent, Belushi’s Bars & St Christopher Inns will host a variety of Australian Football events throughout the year.
Belushi’s Group Marketing Manager Ben Kelly said this partnership is great for all involved due to the potential of Australian Football in Europe.
“Australian Football is a sport which is really making an impact across Europe. We are excited to continue this partnership and be involved in the game. There is a great community getting involved all over Europe, and we are happy to keep supporting AFL Europe,” Kelly said.
AFL Europe General Manager Ryan Davey said it’s an exciting time for both brands, and to have Belushi’s Bars & St Christopher’s Inns on board again is exciting for the game in Europe.
“After a successful first year of the partnership in 2018, we are thrilled to continue our partnership with Belushi’s Bars & St Christopher’s Inns. Belushi’s Bars will provide the AFL Community here in Europe with a place to watch their favourite AFL team play each week, whilst St Christopher’s Inns will continue to be a fantastic accommodation partner for our teams whether they are travelling for tournaments or holidaying with friends,” Davey said.
