Uber x ASF: Reserve Grade Hero Winner Announced

Uber x ASF: Reserve Grade Hero Winner Announced

April 23, 2024


In March, we announced that the Australian Sports Foundation was working in partnership with Uber Reserve to find Australia’s most deserving reserve or community team. 

We’re now thrilled to reveal that West Brunswick Amateur Football Club (also known as West) has been selected by Mary Fowler, the hosts of the Hello Sports Podcast, and Uber, as the Reserve Grade Hero and awarded a $50,000 sponsorship.

West is an independent, volunteer-run club that aims to make footy fun, inclusive and accessible to all. At the heart of the club are its reserve teams, which play a pivotal role both on and off the field. The reserve teams form the backbone of the club’s volunteer network, showing dedication by arriving early to assist with other matches, staying late to support the senior games, and providing coaching on game days.

The $50,000 will go a long way for West, which has been fundraising on the ASF platform for the past few years for their COVID-19 recovery fund and a future fund. Prior to this sponsorship, they were facing a season with no pavilion facilities, aging equipment and an oval that is currently a building site. These funds will be dedicated to helping support current players, will allow the club to build on its values as an inclusive club and do more work in the LGBTQIA, First Nations, parents and carers, and disability spaces.
