Do you know a local hero who has gone above and beyond for their community football club?

Now is the time to put their name forward, with entries for nominations closing this Sunday, July 30 for the 2022 Hostplus Volunteer of the Year Award.

Now in its sixth year, the SANFL Hostplus Volunteer of the Year Award aims to highlight those individuals who have provided notable voluntary service to community football in South Australia.

As has become tradition, this year’s winner will receive the David Shipway AM Medal and the title of SANFL Hostplus Volunteer of the Year.

The 2022 SANFL Hostplus Volunteer of the Year will be presented at the annual SANFL Community Volunteers Dinner at Adelaide Oval later this year.

In recognition of their outstanding efforts, the SANFL Hostplus Volunteer of the Year winner also receives the following prizes:

  • 1 night’s accommodation for two people at the Serafino Winery McLaren vale, including a 3-course dinner and breakfast. During the stay, the winner will be provided a brand-new luxury Kia vehicle to explore the famous wine region in style.
  • 2 x Adelaide Oval Football Memberships, including reserved seats to all AFL Home games (excluding finals) in season 2023.
  • A $200 e-gift voucher redeemable anywhere in Australia where Mastercard is accepted, courtesy of the AFL.

In addition, the winner will automatically be entered in the National Good for Footy AFL Community Volunteer of the Year award as South Australia’s nominee. If selected as the national winner, they will receive a 2022 AFL Grand Final experience for two people.

If you know a deserving volunteer at either your SANFL or grassroots community club, or an administrator of a local league, nominate them now.
