Return to community footy – Celebrating The Moments

Across New South Wales and the ACT, the signs of footy returning are everywhere; last year’s mud is being clapped off boots, fresh paint is being etched into the grass and mums and dads are rinsing out their thermos mugs.

Whether it be playing games, returning to training or getting back into your home routines, we believe these are steps worth celebrating.

We’d love for players, parents, umpires, clubs and leagues to help us capture the moments and raw joy of footy’s return; whatever that means to you and wherever you are.

Capture a short video (20 seconds or less) of something that makes you excited about footy’s comeback; a training drill, running onto the field for the first game of the season, lacing up your boots, marking the 50m arc, testing the ground’s siren, the first bounce from the umpire, pumping air into the Sherrin, a coach’s address, singing the song for the first time, you name it, we want to see it.

Or take a snap of your players, umpires, volunteers, coaches, committee members or fans soaking up the moment that footy is back.

What we’re after:

A video or photo (maximum 20 secs video) that shows any moment from your (or your team/club/league) return to footy; whether it’s something you do at home, at training or in games. Big or small, so long as it’s a moment that makes you happy and gets you excited!

How to submit your moments:

Upload to your Facebook or Instagram account and use the hashtag #myfootymoment. Make sure your share/privacy settings are set correctly if you want us to find it. Or you can simply share it with us on Facebook or Instagram @aflnswact

What next:

We might use your #myfootymoment in a compilation of celebrations and moments captured across Australia and there’s prizes up for grabs!
