Which Auskickers get to play on Grand Final Day?

NAB, the NAB AFL Auskick program’s major sponsor, select an NAB AFL Auskicker of the Week for 22 weeks across the season.

NAB contact the winners each week directly and it is these winners who go on to participate on Grand Final day and present the medals to the players.

The opportunity to register for the competition is open to all participants in the program and with over 175,000 participants across the country a large number register for the opportunity so with only 22 participants lucky enough to be selected it is as you can imagine a very popular competition. NAB make contact directly with winners a week or two out from when they are announced on Friday nights during the Channel 7 telecast.

I am interested in sponsorship with Auskick:

The main sponsor for the Auskick program is NAB, along with a network of other sponsors. Applications for sponsorship would need to go through AFL Head Office.
