MEDIA UPDATE OF THE WEEK - oOh! x Toyota AFL Finals Series and NAB AFLW Finals Series
oOh! media has extended its partnership with the AFL for the 2023 Toyota AFL Finals Series to also feature the 2023 NAB AFLW Finals Series.
In a one-year partnership extension, oOh! will deliver live scores, video highlights and match moments from the Toyota AFL Finals Series and NAB AFLW Finals Series across its national digital out-of-home network.
This follows a successful trial last year where oOh! broadcast live scores and content for the 2022 Toyota AFL Finals Series and this year’s Australian Open.
“oOh! continues to invest in a digital first future and this agreement builds on our purpose to make public spaces better, while giving advertisers the opportunity to integrate their brands alongside premium sport content,” said oOh!’s chief content, marketing and creative officer, Neil Ackland. “We’re delighted to extend the partnership and our relationship with the AFL to deliver the latest scores and key highlights from the men’s and women’s footy finals to sports lovers in Out of Home environments.”
AFL executive general manager customer and commercial, Kylie Rogers, said: “We welcome the opportunity to extend our collaboration with oOh! to not only bring the excitement of this year’s Toyota AFL Finals Series, but for the first time the NAB AFLW Finals Series, to more people than ever before. “The response to the live score trials we conducted last year was overwhelmingly positive and now we’re excited to expand on this in 2023 to ensure footy fans, outside the home, will not miss a moment of the action.”
ANZ-Roy Morgan Consumer Confidence has risen by 3.2 points to 78.4 in August, the biggest two week jump since April 2020. However, the index has now spent an equal record twenty-two straight weeks below the mark of 80 – equalling the all-time record of five months (twenty-two weeks) from September 1990 – January 1991.
Consumer Confidence is now 5.7pts below the same week a year ago, July 25-31, 2022 (84.1) and almost level, 0.1pts above the 2023 weekly average of 78.3. Consumer Confidence was up in most States including Victoria, and South Australia, but down slightly in Queensland and WA. The driver of this week’s increase was the feeling of improved positive sentiment regarding personal finances over the next year, and Australia’s economy performance.
It’s a happy time if you’re a Matilda’s player, fan or just an Australian who loves to watch their proud country play off in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup on the home turf.
