Swans celebrate Grassroots Appreciation Round

The Sydney Swans are this week celebrating Grassroots Appreciation Round, to acknowledge everyone involved in community football: the many players, coaches, umpires, parents and volunteers who make the running of junior clubs possible.

During the week, the Swans have undertaken a number of initiatives to bring in people from around the Sydney and Hunter Central Coast region and acknowledge their hard work in making Australian Football happen in our communities.


This Saturday at the SCG is Grassroots Appreciation round and the Sydney Swans are celebrating the real heroes of community footy.

To say thank you for helping to grow our game from the grassroots up, Woolworths are offering you the opportunity to purchase a family ticket to watch the Swans take on the Suns for only $25*
