Brisbane Roar Community Update


With the Hyundai A-League 2018/19 season nearing the end, our players have been doing their bit to get out & about and give back to their local communities.

Our highly anticipated ANZAC Day clash against Adelaide United is getting closer. Five of our Hyundai A-League stars headed to Milton for a BBQ with the Club’s ANZAC Day Charity Champion Mates4Mates at the beginning of March.

Brendan White, Stefan Nigro, Jacob Pepper, Charles Lokoli-Ngoy & Ruon Tongyik stopped by Mates4Mates base & chatted with veterans about ANZAC Day, life away from football and overcoming mental and physical challenges.


After Friday’s State vs State clash against Sydney FC, our boys dropped in at Westfield Chermside rebel with Brendan White, Dylan Wenzel-Halls, Eric Bautheac, Henrique, Jamie Young & Luke Devere meeting fans and to sign some maroon gear on Saturday morning.

Wenzel-Halls also joined Stefan Mauk to visit our Round 23 Matchday Partner Village Roadshow’s Paradise Country to meet Shaun the Sheep and his furry friends ahead of their appearance at Suncorp Stadium.

She’s already back on deck, putting in the hard work & preparing our squad for the next Westfield W-League season but Roar Women Head Coach Mel Andreatta has been busy off the park too.

She celebrated International Womens Day with a spot on the panel at the Brisbane Airport Corporation Breakfast. Mel was also awarded Female Coach of the Year at the rebel Female Football Awards ceremony where Roar Corps super fan Chris McAlister also picked up Female Fan of the Year.


A number of our Hyundai A-League stars headed to local community clubs to hand out free tickets for our home matches.

Charles Lokoli-Ngoy visited Redlands United & Capalaba Bulldogs to meet junior players and present them with Hyundai A-League tickets courtesy of Principal Partner ActronAir.

Our Danish enforcer Thomas Kristensen also surprised the juniors at Park Ridge FC with tickets for last Friday’s match against Sydney FC thanks to Partner BBC Painting, while our Foxtel Y-League Championship-winning captain Aaron Reardon also stopped by at the Tarragindi Tigers sign-on day.

After becoming a key component of our back four in recent weeks, Ruon Tongyik headed to the Harmony Day Family Fun Day in Logan to enjoy the festivities and play football with the kids.
