NAB has been Footifying Australia for over ten years through NAB AFL Auskick, the NAB AFL Rising Stars Program and NAB Cup. In many ways, they have supported some of the AFL’s greats from the grassroots up, whilst growing the game in all corners of our great country (not just on the big stage).
NAB AFL Auskick
NAB's partnership with Auskick continues to provide much needed support to over 180,000 participants and 20,000 volunteers, involved at the 2,800 centres around the country.
During NAB’s tenure, numbers have increased by over 43,000 participants.
NAB also continues its search for the NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year, rewarding twenty-two lucky nominees each year with a three-day Toyota AFL Grand Final experience.
NAB AFL Rising Star
NAB has been helping Australia's most talented young footballers reach their potential through the NAB AFL Rising Stars Program since 2002.
The Rising Star Award is given to the most outstanding up-and-coming player at the end of every season. Each of the 23 nominees receive a NAB Club Recognition Award for their junior club valued at $2,500.
As well as Rising Star, NAB supports young players on their path to the big stage through the NAB AFL Under 16 Championships, NAB AFL Under 18 Championships, the AIS-AFL Academy and the NAB AFL Draft. Fair to say they love to support footy, from the local club to the MCG, and everywhere in between.
NAB knows it can be a struggle for fans of the game to make it through the off-season - almost five months of no footy (and a lot of cricket) can really take its toll.
For this reason (and many others) NAB proudly partners with the AFL to bring footy back to the fans every year through the NAB Cup.
Since 2006, NAB has supported the AFL in taking NAB Cup footy to every state and territory in the land, allowing fans to witness first-hand the thrills and spills of Australia's Game.
