XBlades Australia CEO Leighton Richards said, ‘XBlades is very excited with the newly formed partnership with AFL NSW/ACT. As the AFL continues to invest heavily in these two regions, which have recently produced some of the most talented emerging athletes in the system, it is ideal for our brand’s expansion back in to the AFL; from grass roots to the elite level. We are looking forward to supporting XBLADES AFL SYDNEY – the largest AFL senior league in NSW/ACT – as it continues its impressive growth and development.’

Sam Graham, CEO at AFL NSW/ACT said, ‘XBlades are a trusted and respected Australian company with strong links to the AFL.
