A total of $150,000 from Telstra will be invested into the game at a grassroots level to help support clubs across the state. Club representatives from registered local Australian football clubs are encouraged to enter for the chance to win. Fans can show their support, and improve their club’s chances of winning, by uploading a photo of them supporting their club

West Coast Eagles star Mark LeCras credits the support of his own junior football club, Cervantes FC, as instrumental to the development his professional career and is encouraging all eligible clubs to apply for one of the thirty $5000 grants. "Footy was always my biggest passion as a youngster and I have some really fond memories of playing at a junior level. It was here that I learnt about teamwork, hard work and dedication to the sport which has been my life and my career," said Mark.
