At MyState Bank, we believe in community, integrity and good sportsmanship. We champion these values at every opportunity; in the ways we interact with our customers, our communities and within our own teams.

That’s why we’re so proud to have extended our partnership with Football Tasmania for another 2 years, and expanded it across Youth Football, Community Football, Referees and the MyState Bank Women’s Super League.

It’s also why we’ve created the MyState Bank Football Community Champion Awards; to celebrate these values and to recognise the important contribution that volunteers make both on the pitch and behind the scenes.

MyState Bank Football Community Champion Awards

It takes over 1600 volunteers to run the state’s most played team sport each year, and we know that kicking goals within our communities would simply not be possible without their hard work and support.

As Football Tasmania CEO Matt Bulkeley says, “from coaches to committee members, junior referees to canteen operators, volunteers are the lifeblood of community sport.”

“Football Tasmania is excited to build on our partnership with MyState Bank to celebrate the outstanding commitment and contribution of our volunteers with this new award, each month.”

MyState Bank’s General Manager of People and Culture, Janelle Whittle, said the award was designed to shine a light on the fantastic behind the scenes work which goes into making community sports like football possible.

“As a strong supporter of the World Game in Tasmania, MyState is delighted to work with Football Tasmania to develop this new initiative and celebrate the behind-the-scenes work which makes community football possible,” Ms Whittle said.

“We’re asking members of the football community to nominate a volunteer who has gone above and beyond, with a MyState Bank Football Community Champion announced each month, and Community Champion of the Year announced at season’s end.”

If you know someone that embodies the values of community, integrity and good sportsmanships, you can nominate them as MyState Bank Football Community Champion here.

Good Sports Awards, Referees and MyState Bank Women’s Super League

In addition, we are supporting football in Tasmania through our Good Sports Awards, recognising participants who play in the spirit of the game across junior football in Tasmania. We also have a number of initiatives with Women’s Football, Referees and Youth Football across Tasmania.

Together, we are aiming to kick goals for our community.
