Hawthorn is pleased to announce that the club has extended its partnership with LED sports lighting and LED signage partner VAILO.

Following a successful two-year partnership with the club’s men’s and women’s programs, Hawthorn is thrilled to unveil its continuation with the advanced technology company.

As part of the extension, VAILO will continue to be the official LED lighting and signage partner for Hawthorn’s AFL and AFLW programs.
