Support A Hawk Launched for 2018

The Cardiff Australian Football Club has launched its “Support A Hawk” Player Sponsorship Program for the 2018 season. The Cardiff Australian Football Club is committed to protecting our amateur status and does not pay players. In retaining our amateur status we require our players to pay club fees to offset the ever increasing costs of competition affiliation fees, insurance levies and operational expenses that trickle right down to ground marking costs, strapping tape expenses and water bottles.

The “Support A Hawk” program provides a pathway for local businesses to support our young men and woman to participate in the Black Diamond AFL competition through sponsoring a player and directly offsetting their playing fees.

Hawks Vice President and Managing Director of CAFC’s major sponsor Jayco Newcastle Damian Charleson says that there has never been a better time to become involved with the club. “The program not only directly supports the sponsored player but will provide unprecedented business to business networking and marketing opportunities for the players host sponsor with the first grade competition expanding to eleven teams and the women’s competition growing to sixteen teams in 2018. The increased exposure for our sponsors will be immense.” Mr  Charleson said.

Our club heads into the 2018 season with great optimism having been grand-finalists in last year’s first grade competition and minor and major premiers in the 2017 reserve grade competition.

The Hawks will once again by guided by 2017 BDAFL coach of the Year Nathan Harkness and has retained most of the players that made last season a success including 2017 BDAFL Best and Fairest player Tom Yensch and 2017 BDAFL MVP Marcus DeLeur.
