The deal will see Ablett continue with the SUNS until at least the end of the 2018 season.
“I’m rapt to have re-committed to the Gold Coast. For some time, I had indicated to the club and my management that I wanted to extend my contract with the SUNS,” Ablett said.
“When I joined the Gold Coast SUNS, I was aware it would be a responsibility and privilege to play a role in forming a new club, in an expansion market for our great game. But I never anticipated the ride to be so fulfilling.
“The Gold Coast SUNS are a fantastic club, made up of great people who have all made such a significant contribution to both the AFL and the Gold Coast community.
“I am proud of what we have achieved so far off the field, and I know that with hard work, we are capable of achieving so much more on-field in the future, and that’s why I have re-committed to the SUNS.
“We still have plenty of work ahead of us, but I strongly believe that we have the right people in place to take our club forward.”
