About the project

The Glenelg Football Club was established in 1920 and plays in the SANFL competition in South Australia, one of the oldest football competitions in the world. The ‘Tigers’ Men won a fifth Premiership flag in 2019, and our Women’s team is a foundation member of the SANFLW competition and played Finals for the first time in 2019. 

The Glenelg Football Club has survived a World War, a financial crisis, a powerful act of Mother Nature, and agonising Grand Final losses. Sadly, the COVID-19 global pandemic has impacted on our club and all our loyal supporters with all football suspended until at least May 31. Our licensed venue – the lifeblood of our club – has also been shut down for the foreseeable future. Like so many people in our community and around the world, we’ve been shocked by the speed with which this event has changed our lives.   

The ‘Fight and Fight and Win’ page has been created to provide a fundraising platform for members, supporters and the wider Bays community to support the club through a tax-deductible donation managed by the Australian Sports Foundation. We certainly acknowledge that the most important priority at the moment is taking care of your personal health & wellbeing, and that of your family and friends, but if you’re in a sound financial position and feel compelled to give during these uncertain times, the Glenelg Tigers family thank you in advance for your generosity.

Whether you are an inter-generational Tigers member, a local Glenelg resident, a parent of one of our many Auskickers, or just a passionate South Australian Football fan - your support will help build on our proud history for generations to come.

    Get behind the Mighty Tigers everyone, we have not been able to get to the club so why don't we all put a little of what we might have spent towards this fundraiser.

    I am a lifelong Tiger tragic and have been a club member since 1981. I was inspired to contribute after seeing Mark Stone announce that the entire squad had committed to playing this season without pay. That is a fantastic gesture both individually and collectively, and demonstrates what an outstanding and united club we are. Thank you, Bays, for being a constant source of joy, pride and loyalty.

    I have loved my Glenelg Tigers since the early 80s when I was a youngster watched the 85 and 86 Grand finals on TV, and made my way from Brisbane last year for the second semi and the Grand Final. I get tingles and tears watching the replay of the 2019 Premiership win and still have my office in Brisbane decked out in Bays gear :)

  • Cameron Tee

    Love the Bays

  • Anthony Dawkins

    Love this club, which has brought me such joy and pain over decades of following the progress. Grand Final Day 2019 was the happiest I've been in my life, without exaggeration. Long live the Bays and the SANFL

  • Jamie Young

    The first time I saw my old man cry was the '85 GF. I've followed the bays ever since. Now my own son is a bays fan and loved everything about last year's victory. Let's keeps what we can to keep the club alive!

  • Phillip Monk

    The club gave us so much in 2019, now it's our turn to give back to them.

  • Luke Habel

    More than happy to support others. It's important we all stick together and stick by our great clubs. We need all clubs in the SANFL to survive. Well done to everyone that is sticking by their club, the SANFL and footy in general.
