This year, the top 50 female footballers in Australia will represent an AFL team for the very first time in an exhibition game on the MCG.
The inaugural AFL Women’s exhibition game will be played as a curtain raiser on the MCG during AFL Women’s Round, leading into the Melbourne vs Western Bulldogs game on Saturday 29 June.
This game represents an important milestone for women's football, being the first time that female footballers will have the opportunity to represent an AFL team on the MCG.
In order to recognise those playing in this memorable game, we are calling for sponsors to support the players.
For just $500, you can sponsor a player, and these funds will be used directly to support the teams selected to take part in this historic game.
Sponsorship package inclusions
Each sponsor will receive the following benefits:
- A photo of the inaugural Melbourne Football Club Women’s Team
- An invitation to attend the Melbourne women’s team training session
- A recognition certificate
