In a huge coup for AFL Europe and the CNFA, Topdeck have committed to the naming rights sponsorship for 2014 Topdeck ANZAC Cup in Villers Bretonneux – France. Topdeck have long been the tour company of choice for ex-pat Australian’s travelling around Europe and are just as popular in Australia for travelling Europeans looking to discover more of Australia.

“We are very excited to further explore the synergies between our companies and how we can assist in the growth of events like the Topdeck ANZAC Cup and connect with both Australian and European travellers when they are booking tours in both regions” Tate continued.

Whilst the deal is for this years event only at the moment there are plans in the works to further extend the partnership.

“AFL Europe is very keen to impress on Topdeck the value of being associated with the strongest sporting brand in Australia and a proud, passionate and growing membership across Europe” AFL Europe CEO, Ben MacCormack said.

“Partnerships like these are what will progress our sport in Europe not too mention the importance of securing the future of this particular event to both the Australian’s and French that have been involved in the past.” MacCormack continued.
