Michelle Battersby, Bumble’s Country Lead for Australia, said “At Bumble we have been huge fans of the AFL for some time and admire their commitment to increasing opportunities for women in sport. We’re excited to begin our partnership by offering our users the incredible opportunity to attend the 2018 AFL Grand Final and look forward to our two organisations working together further in the future.”
Bumble was founded by Whitney Wolfe-Herd, on the core values of kindness, respect and empowerment, and is on a global mission to promote equality and put an end to gender bias, economic inequality, sexual assault, harassment and hate speech. Bumble has lifted the stigma of online dating by putting women in control of the conversation. On Bumble, women always make the first move.
