The AFL spotlight on international football opportunities

Posted by Vietnam Swans on February 12, 2008

The AFL spotlight of Saturday’s AFL match in Dubai between Collingwood and Adelaide has lots of people talking.

  • AFL Supremo, Andrew Demetriou said, “. He went on: “South Africa certainly is a priority and so is Japan – with our Toyota partnership – and Los Angeles has appeal as part of our Australia Day celebrations over there. And we certainly plan to continue to rebuild our relationship with Ireland”.
  • AFL Chief Broadcasting and Commercial Officer Gillon McLachlan said .
  • David Matthews, the AFL’s General Manager for National and International Development says .
  • Kevin Sheedy has been appointed to help drive the game internationally. According to World Footy News, he has argued that .
  • In today’s Herald Sun, Sheedy also talks about the and needs to start thinking about what the competition should look like in 2050.
  • Austrade’s Chief Economist, Tim Harcourt says, ““.

All this talk is a far cry from the lead up to last year’s Asian Championships when the AFL Footy Record refused to make reference to the Champs because, unfortunately, “it kind of goes outside the scope of what we do“. The Swans’ President wrote to the Footy Record at the time to express his disappointment and to detail some ideas about the broader opportunities of using Australia’s signature sport to promote not just footy, but events and organisations with a link to Australia (see ).

If you’ve ever checked World Footy News’ , you will see just how many volunteer footy clubs already exist around the world. There’s a lot of energy out there.

Jim Beam does it again

Posted by Vietnam Swans on October 7, 2007

Those Red & White Angels, the Swanettes (also known as the Jim Beam Party Crew), made a welcome return to JASPAS in Hanoi last week for the Grand Final. Jim Beam, a Gold Sponsor for the day gave us 37 x 750ml bottles to distribute to the crowd.

And so, the Swanettes wandered through the crowd randomly asking people to name our Sponsors – whose names were written on the banners hung around the room. How easy was that??

Also, coming from JB’s sponsorship of the Swans for the Asian Champs, we gave away 2 x 4.5 mega litre bottles of JB as prizes for various competitions.

Jim Beam and the Swanettes were a definite hit and a real crowd teaser, ah, pleaser.

Meanwhile, training resumed in Saigon yesterday in preparation for the triple header on 17 November between Vietnam, Thailand and Laos. And, surprising a few, a box full of 375ml Jim Beams appeared and were duly distributed to those who had toured to Bangkok for the Champs. The half bottles were part of Jim Beam’s original sponsorship.

Gotta be very happy with that.

Swans unveil “2007 AFL Grand Final Party” Banner

Posted by Vietnam Swans on September 22, 2007

With just 7 days before the 2007 AFL Grand Final Party in Hanoi, the Vietnam Swans today unveiled the Official Banner. The banner which captures the feel of the event and displays the logos of sponsors in a very innovative manner was designed by  who have offered the Vietnam Swans outstanding support.

For those in Hanoi on Thursday, 27th September, you may well see the banner when the Swans hold their 2nd Annual Grand Final Cyclo Parade. The Swans and Friends (everyone is welcome to be a friend) will meet at Le Pub, jump into cyclos dressd in team colours and set off on a Pub Crawl with a difference – it will include a drop at our Gold Sponsor, Red Apron’s Wine Store at the Metropole.

Full details will be announced on the Blog and at Le Pub “imminently” said an anonymous Club spokesperson.

How high are the hairs standing on the back of your neck? The Swans have been told the back of our necks looks more like that of an echidna! Unheard of.
