Kestelman’s bold JackJumpers plan

Tasmania JackJumpers owner Larry Kestelman has revealed he would be open to having conversations with the AFL to establish a club with the same name.

JackJumpers mania has taken Australia by storm, as the club qualified for the Grand Final series in their inaugural season.

As the AFL investigates the possibility of expansion into Tasmania, Kestelman says he would be willing to share the JackJumpers name.

“The AFL should come and approach us and see if they want to call their team the JackJumpers as well,” Kestelman told Newscorp.

“We’d definitely think about it. I’ve exchanged messages with people I know on the AFL Task Force, and they’ve been very complimentary.

“In reverse, I’m very supportive of the AFL coming to Tasmania. I have no problem with it.

“We’ve got a five-year head start, but if the AFL announce a team there, I’ll be very happy for the state of Tasmania.

“The state will have a team for the summer and the winter.”

Tasmania will meet the Sydney Kings in the best-of-five Grand Final series, with game one on Friday night at Qudos Bank Arena. The game will be broadcast live at 7:30pm AEST on ESPN and Kayo Freebies.
