Become a sponsor

Do you want to grow your business?

Create positive connections with a large group of new customers?

Be seen to create positive contributions to local community?

Support the health and wellbeing of over one hundred young people?

Then a tax-deductible sponsorship agreement with Swinburne Amateur Football Club will help you reach your business goals and feel good for giving something back.* Sponsorship with SAFC is a win-win with both sides mutually benefitting through our large network of members, players, staff and supporters.

Swinburne Amateur Football Club (SAFC) is a proud club that strives for success on and off the field for our players, members, supporters, and sponsors. As SAFC prepares for its 27th football season, we invite you to consider becoming an important part of our growing community.

 

SAFC provides the local community, and particularly students and alumni of Swinburne University, a safe place to get physically active and make connections with their peers.

 

However, we wouldn’t be able to keep serving our team of over 100 young people without important partners like you.

 

Sponsorship of SAFC promotes your cafe directly to our extensive network in the local community and beyond, building a positive association between your brand and supporting grassroots sport. Your business will be associated with a growing club that is inclusive, community-minded, loyal and will benefit by showing your support for local men’s and womxn’s community sport.

 

We offer several sponsorship packages to suit the commitment you wish to make, all of which offer significant marketing opportunities to increase awareness and goodwill towards your cafe. SAFC always strives to create a reciprocal relationship based on mutual benefit, to ensure our sponsors will see a return on investment.

 

Your valuable contribution will enable our club to continue in its mission of providing accessible opportunities in AFL for Swinburne students and alumni and local residents who share a passion for the sport. As a non-profit and volunteer-run club, you can be confident that every dollar you spend goes directly into providing the services and equipment we need from matchday balls to medical tape and umpire’s fees.

If you're interested in a partnership with SAFC then contact us online, via email or via our social media.

Thank you for considering a partnership with a grassroots community organisation that keeps young people happy, healthy and active.

About our club and what your sponsorship means for us

SAFC competes in the Victorian Amateur Football Association (VAFA). SAFC was established in 1995 at the urging of the University’s founding Chancellor, Richard Pratt, who believed the University needed a football team.

 

We have three men’s and one womxn’s side as well as an extensive network of members and former players. St James Park in Hawthorn is our home ground.

We are a registered non-profit organisation so every dollar earned by the club goes straight back into making it a better place for our players and community. 

Sponsorship provides greater financial security for our club and enables us to fulfil our mission of providing opportunities in Aussie Rules football to Swinburne students and the wider community. We are proud of our role in facilitating a healthy, social and positive outlet for the community both as a player or supporter and by providing a hub for making new friends, keeping active and providing positive social and community connection.

 

The stronger our financial position, the more we can provide high-quality facilities, staff and resources for our growing community. With a strong playing group complimented by a passionate committee and growing womxn’s AFL connections, the club is in a fantastic position to reach new heights in 2022 and beyond.
