BRFC Community Update


Another Hyundai A-League season has kicked off, but that hasn’t stopped our boys from giving back to the community and getting out and about across the South East.

Last week, we joined new BRFC Principal Partner ActronAir at the Queensland Children’s Hospital to put smiles on the dials of some brave, young kids.

Hyundai A-League players Luke DeVere & Joe Caletti joined in on the fun, taking time to take photos & have a chat with some of young fans & their families with ActronAir also donating 90 match tickets to the hospital.

On Monday, we were priviliged to again return to the hospital to support Nova’s Bids to Help Sick Kids.

Nova’s Bids to Help Sick Kids auction is raising much needed funds for the Children’s Hospital Foundation to support sick and critically injured children in the lead-up to the Channel Nine Telethon on 17 November.

Brisbane Roar has donated the Ultimate Game Day Experience with a behind-the-scenes tour, a signed jersey and seats in our Football Lounge to be auctioned off.

Caletti & Shannon Brady headed along with mascots Roary & Rosie to help out one of the Club’s new Charity Champions.

The Children’s Hospital Foundation are one of five organisations who have been chosen to be our Charity Champions for the 2018-19 season.

Earlier this month, in an effort to invest in the vitality and well-being of our communities, we selected five Queensland charities whose values align with the Club’s.

These organisations are: Children’s Hospital Foundation, Starlight Children’s Foundation, Share the Dignity, Red Frogs and Multicultural Development Australia.

“BRFC is privileged to be able to support some wonderful local and Queensland charities for the upcoming Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League campaigns,” BRFC Managing Director David Pourre said.

“The Club is passionate about helping those in the community that face difficult times in their lives.”


Ahead of the new season, a number of our younger brigade also took the opportunity to support events around the City.

Charity Champion Multicultural Development Australia invited Joe Caletti & young defender Connor O’Toole along to the MOSAIC Festival at Roma Street Parklands, with the young duo embracing a great range of cultures on display and meeting some of the Roar faithful along the way.

New recruit Dylan Wenzel-Halls also accepted the invitation to take a look at Brisbane’s Mental Health Day Expo, meeting various organisations and taking part in a number of fun activities, all designed to boost spirits.


ActronAir also rallied behind Morningside State School following a devastating fire that caused significant damage to the school.

The historic school lost six classrooms, along with learning materials and a year’s worth of school work in a devastating fire earlier this month.

In support of Morningside State School, ActronAir offered 80 tickets to last Sunday’s double header to the school’s staff, students and their families.

“As the Principal Partner of one of Brisbane’s most successful sporting clubs, ActronAir believes it’s important to support the local community, especially in times of need,” ActronAir State Manager Sam Collins said.


On October 6, we were also proud to invite all BRFC fans to our 2018 Members Day at our new City of Logan Training Complex.

Thank you to the support of all Club partners involved on the day, as well as the support of the Roar Supporters Federation, and of course, the incredible crowd of BRFC fans who enjoyed the morning with our players.

With the 2018 Christian Football Federation Australia National Titles in our backyard at Dolphin Stadium, Hyundai A-League players Dane Ingham & Brendan White also headed along to Redcliffe and proved a big hit with competitors.
