About the project

As most supporters would know, there are considerable costs associated with fielding teams to represent our great club. This includes grounds, trainers, coaches, footballs, insurance, league fees and much more.

Many of our players are students with part-time work, or graduates at entry level jobs, and finding the $295 to $430 for registration fees each season is a challenge. To help ease this burden, the club has established the Fitzroy Football Club-Player Assistance Fund (as a way to support the Player Sponsorship program) and this will be exclusively used to cover player registration fees. These donation payments come to the club, and not to the player, so it doesn't breach the amateur status nature of the competition.

Through the club’s fundraising partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF), we have introduced a new system this year that enables supporters to receive a tax deduction for assisting FFC players to cover the cost of their registration.

The suggested donation amounts per player are as follow:

Team                                              Player Assistance donation amount

Men’s Senior and Reserves         $430

Women’s Senior and Reserves   $315

Men’s Thirds                                  $315

Men’s Under 19’s                         $295

If you would like to make a contribution towards a player but do not want to pay the full amount please feel free to do so and your contribution will be grouped with other kind donations.

Donations to the Fitzroy Football Club – Player Assistance Fund are fully tax deductible.
