Uber Reserve x ASF: $50K Sponsorship for Australia’s Best Community Team

Uber Reserve x ASF: $50K Sponsorship for Australia’s Best Community Team

April 10, 2024


In partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation, Uber Reserve is on the hunt to find Australia’s most deserving reserve or community team. In recognition of their hard work, the winning team will be offered a $50,000 sponsorship thanks to Uber's Reserve Grade Heroes campaign!  

The move comes as ASF research reveals that 1 in 4 regional and remote Australian sporting clubs are experiencing declining participation registrations, largely due to the impact of the cost-of-living crisis, a lack of resources, or the costs of registrations and fees, which is threatening the future of Australian sport.   

Australian Women’s National Soccer forward, Mary Fowler, is leveraging her experience in community sport, particularly on the reserve bench, to inspire the next generation of grassroots players and call on Australia to recognise the importance of their local team.  

“This initiative aims to recognise the underdogs and the underfunded on the reserve bench, in their consistent pursuit to keep their club, and community spirit alive,” said Fowler. “I resonate with their fighting community spirit, as it spurred my love for soccer 14 years ago in my hometown in Cairns. Without it, I simply wouldn’t be where I am today, playing professionally and for my national team,” 

Mary herself, along with the hosts of the Hello Sport podcast, and individuals from Uber, will form a panel to be responsible for selecting the winning club.   

Entries are open to non-professional sports teams across the country from 13 March 2024 and close at midnight on 31 March 2024. Grab your cameras, grab your teammates, and in just a 60-second video, show Uber why your team deserves $50,000.
