Andre Chung chuffed to join Team NAB AFL Auskick

Team NAB AFL Auskick has its fifth recruit of the year, with seven-year-old Andre Chung from the East Sydney Bulldogs Auskick centre joining the team.

The 2024 Team NAB AFL Auskick coaches Nick Daicos and Katie Brennan encourage all registered Auskickers to enter via submitting a video online for a chance to join the team. They are on the lookout for NAB Auskickers who show teamwork, dedication, and passion!

Selected Auskickers will have the opportunity to invite an Auskick teammate of their choice to join them for a remarkable experience, attending an AFL Grand Final.

Eleven lucky winners will be announced during the Seven Network’s AFL match broadcast, with Andre being the fifth lucky Auskicker to join the team accompanied by his chosen nominee – his friend, George Cudmore.

Andre and George will join their fellow Team NAB AFL Auskick recruits at the MCG in Melbourne for a once-in-a-lifetime Grand Final experience, where they take centre stage and present the winning grand final team with their premiership medallions.

Andre’s dream is to play for the Sydney Swans when he grows up. He attends every single Swans home game at the SCG and will not miss watching an away game on TV. He loves practicing his footy skills and kicking a ball around with all his friends.

Outside of footy, Andre also loves basketball, Transformers and reading. His favourite books are the Tree House Series, Dog Man and Harry Potter.

There’s some friendly rivalry with Andre’s friend George, who is a passionate Geelong Cats fan, with his favourite player being Tom Hawkins. Andre was so overjoyed when the Cats won the 2022 Grand Final that he turned up to the first Auskick session of 2023 in his Cats jumper, completely forgetting that Sydney Swans players (and his Swans supporter friend George!) would be at the session.

George also loves watching Jeremy Cameron prepare for a set shot, and his signature move of squeezing the ends of the ball before he kicks it.

As part of being selected as a Team NAB AFL Auskick recruit, Andre has the chance to be crowned the 2024 NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year which will be announced during Toyota AFL Grand Final Week.

The lucky NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year will receive a remarkable $5,000 prize thanks to NAB and have the privilege of being mentored by an AFL and AFLW player throughout 2025.
