The Melbourne Football Club is proud to support a wide and varied range of communities and charities in and around Melbourne, and throughout Australia.

The Club receives a significant amount of community requests and we have provided a set of guidelines below.

All requests must be lodged via the community request form, please ensure you have read the guidelines before submitting.

Fundraising Requests

The Melbourne Football Club can support communities and charities by assisting with fundraising initiatives.

Due to popular demand, the Club’s 2021 AFL Team Signed guernseys that are allocated to support charity/community events and initiatives has been exhausted.

Player Visits

Our club and players conduct a number of appearances at various events and locations including charity/not-for-profit organisations, hospitals, schools, junior football clubs and NAB AFL Auskick Centres.

Due to the number of appearances players are committed to each year, they are unable to participate in additional appearance requests.

Please note, due to COVID-19, no player visits are currently scheduled.

Requests for player appearances outside of official AFL and Club appearances can be made through individual player managers which fall outside of the Club’s appearance program.

Financial Assistance

The Melbourne Football Club is not able to offer financial assistance, cash donations or monetary sponsorship.
