Female and junior football in Western Australia received a major boost today partnering with motoring giant Hyundai.
Hyundai is a big supporter of Football at all levels of the game, best known for the Hyundai A-League partnership in Australia. The three-year agreement will give Hyundai naming rights to the elite Football West NTC program which has helped bring through a number of top female players, including Perth Glory and Matildas superstar Sam Kerr.
Hyundai will also sponsor a raft of key Football West development programs, including the Skill Acquisition Program and the Training Support Program, plus the WA Community Football Fund.
But it’s the chance to win big which will excite grassroots clubs.
Hyundai will launch the “All Dai, Every Dai” community football raffle with $50,000 worth of prizes, including a brand-new seven-seater Santa Fe.

And clubs that participate are guaranteed to profit – because 100% of proceeds they raise from selling raffle tickets, will remain with the club. Which means the more tickets they sell, the more they make.
Football West CEO James Curtis trumpeted the benefits the partnership will bring for community football.
“Football West is thrilled to go into partnership with Hyundai, a brand which has such a strong brand name in Australian football with its association to the A-League.
“Football West was the first Member Federation to have a Female Football Plan, so it is fitting that we are again leading the way by teaming up with Hyundai to benefit of female and junior football.
“And with the “All Dai, Every Dai” community football raffle, clubs can see where the money is going – back into their own club.”

Michael Beros, Hyundai Regional General Manager WA said, “The team at Hyundai are very excited about extending upon our global commitment to football to the very heart and soul of WA grassroots level by rolling out support to over 250 clubs and over 230,000 players, volunteers and supporters across our great state. It’s a great example of how Hyundai and our Western Australian Dealer Network are connecting to the communities in which we live, work and play.”
Confirmation of this new partnership deal with Hyundai, which has major sponsor rights for the A-League, ensures that Hyundai Motor Corporation continues to lead the way in supporting grassroots to elite level football around the world.
