Footy Grants

Whatever your favourite code, being involved in local footy is energising. It’s not just great for your health; it’s also a way to belong to something bigger, to be connected to your community.

St.George understands how powerful the footy communities are for all involved and want to help Australians remove the barriers to participation, whether they be mental, physical, financial or cultural, allowing for all individuals to be involved and represented equally. Together with their elite football partners, St.George have created St.George Footy Grants. These financial Grants will be rewarded throughout the 2019 season and will enable everyday Australians to follow their footballing passions.
