2014 AFL NAB Challenge


Official charity partner of the 2014 AFL NAB Challenge



Australian Red Cross is partnering with the Australian Football League as the official charity partner of the 2014 AFL NAB Challenge, which will be held during February and March.

The AFL NAB Challenge is the Australian Football League's official annual preseason competition played by all 18 AFL Clubs at venues across metro and regional Australia. The partnership will provide Red Cross the opportunity to collect funds across 18 matches.

As well as match day fundraising, the partnership will also provide a national platform to increase awareness about the vital everyday work of Red Cross, including Disaster Relief and Recovery programs which support those who have been affected by bushfires and other natural disasters around the country. This will be done through AFL and AFL stakeholder promotional vehicles such as online, radio, print, PR and match day promotions.

The partnership will be promoted through the 2014 AFL NAB Challenge with Red Cross volunteers in attendance at various games collecting valuable donations to help those who need it most.

Match Day Fundraising

As the official charity partner of the AFL NAB Challenge, Red Cross staff and volunteers will be out in force collecting vital funds during February and March across Australia. If you see these volunteers, please give generously! Alternatively, you can make a secure online donation here.

Where will the funds go?

Donations received from the AFL NAB Challenge will help us continue to fund the vital everyday work of Red Cross, including Disaster Relief and Recovery programs which support those who have been affected by disaster. More than 390,000 Australians are affected in some way by fires, floods, cyclones and other natural disasters each year; and desperately rely on your help. Your kind donation will ensure this work carries on.
