AFL Victoria is continuing to work with our partners to deliver a range of competition, fundraising and grant opportunities to benefit your club and support you through these uncertain times.
As part of this, we are calling on Victorians to share their stories about your community football clubs and to utilising the programs below to stay engaged and raise funds to have your club ready for the return of footy!
Stay up to date and get in touch via Facebook to tell us about your community clubs’ story.
Worksafe Country Club Challenge
Worksafe Country Safety Fund
In a time where safety is paramount, we need to look after our country footy communities and help ensure a safe environment once we’re back.
WorkSafe is committed to helping country football be safe. Through the past 18 years, WorkSafe has helped over 300 Football Clubs with funding and assistance and we’ll continue to support local clubs through the WorkSafe Club Safety Fund.
The Club Safety Fund provides financial assistance to rural football clubs to improve the safety of their grounds, or provide added security for players, those involved and spectators.
Stay Together to win $5,000 for your club
AFL Victoria has teamed up with 1116 SEN and the TAC to support local football and netball clubs during these times, offering four weekly $5,000 club cash prizes to clubs who show us how you’re staying healthy, connected and ready for when we’re back playing.
We believe that when we all work together, any goal is possible, from getting back on the field, to reaching zero deaths and serious injuries on the roads.
How to enter?
Simply nominate your club by heading to icanwin.com.au here & uploading a 60-second video explaining how your club is staying connected and motivated during this time. The more creative, the better!
