The new owner of the austin domain name has already made its first payment
The owner of an Australian footballing domain name is set to make a “first payment” of about $2.5 million to a company to purchase the domain name, it has been reported.
The Australian Football League (AFL) announced on Wednesday that an agreement had been reached for the new owners to purchase Austin.
The A-League said the deal was worth “millions” of dollars.
The site for the domain is called “The Australian” and is used by fans, including the former A-Team players, and is a result of the league’s bid to grow its presence in the United States.
The deal is expected to be completed in the next three to five weeks, according to The Australian newspaper.
“The Australian was registered in October, 2017 by the A-league as a new brand,” a spokesperson for the AAFL told ABC News.”AAPL’s A-team members are the original owners of the domain, and they will be able to retain ownership of the brand.”
While the Aussie has been in use for a few years now, we have had no further interaction with the new owner.””
We are very excited about the potential this new brand can provide to the AFL and its fans.
“In July, the AIF announced that it was planning to buy the rights to the name in an auction.AFL CEO Gavin Barwell said the AFA was now prepared to “pay whatever is necessary” to acquire the name, which is now registered in a company registered in the US.”
We believe we are in a position to be able and willing to pay whatever is required to secure this domain,” he said.”
In the end, we will have an opportunity to use the AAGL’s domain in our marketing activities.
“The AFA has previously said it had no intention of selling the name.”
As we have stated before, we are not going to sell this domain and we will continue to use it to promote the AAL and the AFT,” a statement said.
