The Novotel Sydney Central hotel played host to the official 2016 AFL Draft broadcast last week, which was streamed nationally by 44K+ Aussie footy fans. The hotel’s rooftop garden was converted into the television programmes set and the backdrop for the hosts, and a number of AFL legend guests in attendance.

The broadcast, which included live crosses to Pullman Sydney Hyde Park to congratulate drafted players, lasted approximately 2 hours and highlighted AccorHotels relationship with the AFL as its national hotel network of choice.
