AFL - Collingwood v. Richmond - Footy back in action - 11 June 2020

Extended customer offers for Kayo, and the introduction of the quest to find Australia’s fastest AFL player headline the anticipated return to play.

Good things come to those who wait, and while we have all endured a really challenging period these past few months, some aspects of our lives are returning to normal, underscored by the return of the interrupted NRL season on 28 May, and the AFL season last night.

While there were plenty of inventive ways to keep fans entertained over the break – like the inaugural Telstra Australian Dice Football League – we’ll admit nothing compares to the real thing.

It would have been almost unthinkable just four months ago if somebody told you the only way you could get your sporting fix was on a screen whether big or small, but with crowd numbers limited (or restricted entirely) Telstra has a number of solutions to keep you wrapped up in the action.

Cardboard cutout fans - AFL matches - The Footy is back for 2020

Kayo offer extended

Firstly, the Kayo offer we announced in February giving Telstra customers who are new and returning to Kayo exclusive access to Kayo Basic for just $15 per month (normally $25 per month), and Kayo Premium for $25 per month (normally $35 per month) for 12 months has been extended from its original 30 June cut-off to 30 September. You can even cancel anytime for added peace of mind and flexibility.

With several sports around the world outlining plans for their return, Kayo is your ticket to the best seat in your house to watch live on your Telstra TV, computer, or mobile device. Remember, you can even add it to your Telstra bill, so all of your payments are in one place.

Kayo compliments our already existing streaming service, the Live Pass, giving eligible mobile customers access to matches from the NRL and AFL seasons on the go from their mobile.

Telstra 5G Fastest Footballer Promotion

Telstra 5G Fastest Footballer

It’s our aim at Telstra to make sure that we stay true to our mission of using technology to give fans the best possible experience, and the introduction of the Telstra Tracker these past few years has been fundamental in giving us all some amazing insights into the athleticism, speed and endurance of Australia’s elite footballers.

Telstra’s player tracker technology will feature during every Friday night AFL fixture on Channel 7 in 2020, as well as through a rolling week-to-week competition encouraging fans to help predict the quickest player of the round.

More than just a number on a screen, fans will have the chance each week to guess the round’s fastest player, with a weekly prize being a brand new Samsung 5G device (S20) so that winners can experience the best mobile technology on Australia’s best 5G network.
