Volkswagen and the Sydney Swans have been supporting communities across Australia since 2015 via a dedicated grassroots grants program. Over this period over $140,000 in grants have been awarded to more than 55 local AFL clubs nationally. These funds have helped provide new footballs, uniforms, training equipment and facility improvements to community clubs in need.
The Volkswagen Footy Assist program is back in 2021, giving clubs the chance to get back on their feet after the devastating impacts of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Footy clubs are the heart of many communities around Australia, and we need to make sure they survive to continue to grow the game of AFL, nurture the development of future AFL talent and keep thousands of footy dreams alive.
