In a blog post, Telstra's Rebecca Haagsma said one of the aspects of AFL that captivated fans each week was the team selection.
"We know from the way our fans interact with the app, that outside of streaming the game, or checking the scores and ladder, the announcement of each team’s line-up of players each week — who is in, and who is out — generates the most interest," she said.
Haagsma said users of the app could follow the prompts therein and activate the augmented reality feature.
"It’s completely interactive, so users can pinch in and out to zoom in on the players, and tap on them to see their stats projected onto the virtual big screen," she said.
"We hope to give users the ability to isolate a player, produce real-time position replays and give you professional-grade tools from the comfort of your lounge room," Haagsma said.
"Your fantasy league won’t know what hit them."
