TOYOTA Good for Footy Raffle returns in 2023 giving community clubs around the country the opportunity to raise funds as part of a program that has delivered more than $9 million to grassroots football.

Last year Toyota helped 629 local clubs raise more than $1 million and this year the aim is to go even bigger, with clubs encouraged to use the program to have a strong start to the season through fundraising.

Community clubs can easily register and sell tickets for $5 each, with a $250,000 prize pool on offer comprising 35 prizes, including a Toyota Kluger Hybrid, Toyota Corolla Cross and Toyota Yaris Cross Hybrid.

The launch of Toyota's biggest grassroots fundraising opportunity, now in its ninth year, coincides with the annual Toyota Good for Footy Round – the upcoming Round Seven fixture of the Toyota AFL Premiership Season, to played across the weekend of April 28-30.

A number of AFL stars have been selected to visit local clubs and help them kick-start their 2023 seasons, including Brodie Smith and Rory Laird (Henley Sharks FC, SA), Toby Greene (St George Dragons, NSW), Alex Pearce (Kingsley Junior FC, WA) and Jack Sinclair (Kew Comets FC, Vic). As part of the program, Toyota is donating $2,000 to each of these clubs and they will also receive 10 tickets to an AFL match during Good for Footy Round.

Toyota have also invited two South Australian community clubs that have participated in the Good for Footy Raffle (Kilburn FC and Gepps Cross FC) to attend the marquee match of Toyota Good for Footy Round – the Adelaide v Collingwood blockbuster at Adelaide Oval on Sunday afternoon.

2023 Toyota AFL National Volunteer Awards

As part of Toyota's support for grassroots footy and volunteers across Australia, the Toyota AFL National Volunteer Awards are back in 2023 with an expanded set of categories to recognise and reward more people who drive the success of community clubs. An overall national winner will be selected and will take home a brand-new Toyota Hilux.

The annual awards recognise volunteers across Australia who have made outstanding contributions to community football. All NAB AFL Auskick centres, schools, community clubs and leagues in each state and territory are invited to participate, with more than 1000 nominations received nationally in 2022.

Scott Flynn from the St Patrick's Old Collegians Football Club in northern Tasmania was the national Community Football Volunteer of the Year last year, the top honour as part of the 2022 Toyota AFL National Volunteer Awards.

Each of the national category winners receives a Grand Final experience including tickets to attend the 2023 Toyota AFL Grand Final, as well as three nights' accommodation.

AFL Executive General Manager of Customer and Commercial, Kylie Rogers said that the game across all levels, from grassroots to elite, benefits from Toyota's continued support.

"Toyota have been a long-standing partner of football and like the AFL, recognises that the foundation of the game is community football.

"Through various activities like the Toyota Good for Footy Raffle and Toyota AFL National Volunteer of the Year Awards, the clubs and people involved in grassroots footy who are the heartbeat of the game in towns and communities across the country receive much-deserved support and recognition.

"I urge clubs to make the most of the fundraising opportunity on offer through the Good for Footy Raffle and get nominations in for the Volunteer of the Year Awards.

"We are proud to continue to work alongside Toyota, who continue to positively impact the wider football community."

Toyota Australia Chief Marketing Officer, Vin Naidoo said Toyota was committed to supporting football at all levels, from community clubs through to the elite level.

"Toyota's Good for Footy program has provided substantial support for our community clubs across Australia and it's through activities such as the Toyota Good for Footy Raffle that we aim to give back to the local community.

"Toyota Australia is proud to support the Good For programs and help strengthen the game, from grassroots to the elite."
