About Santa Teresa Oval

In the community of Santa Teresa, 80km from Alice Springs, sits a red dirt oval made up entirely of clay.

The ground is so hard and unstable, those who are brave enough to play their beloved AFL on it often succumb to injury. Participation in football has dropped immensely.

The Melbourne Football Club are extremely proud to be a part of the Santa Teresa Oval re-grassing Project and in turn bringing about sustainable change that will have a positive impact in Santa Teresa and the central desert regions far beyond the oval itself.

The Club is committed to building meaningful and lasting relationships in the Northern Territory.

We would like to invite you to join us and contribute to this significant project, by making a tax -deductible donation to the Red & Blue Foundation – Santa Teresa Oval Project.

Through our fundraising partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation, donations $2 and over to Melbourne Football Club’s Red and Blue Foundation are tax deductible.  For more information on our partnership and tax deductibility visit the ASF website
