5 Reasons To Support Your Local Club During Finals
Embrace the fun of finals fever and jump on the bandwagon of your local sports club this finals season.
As the club’s newest fan, you’ll be helping your community and supporting your local team. And there’s plenty in it for you too.
Connect with your neighbours
Sporting clubs are a reflection of a community. From juniors and their families, to old-timers and life-members, there is a friend for everyone at a local sporting club.
Getting around your local club during the finals is a great way to connect with your neighbours and feel more part of your local community. You never know when these local connections could come in handy.
Get close to the action
Ever been to a footy game or sports event and ended up in the nosebleeds? Sometimes it can feel like you’d be better off just watching the match at home.
At a local sporting club, there are no bad seats. Local sport is your chance to get close to the action – hear the coach’s quarter-time address, watch a ball sail through the basket and celebrate with the players on the final whistle.
Cheap day out
These days, finals tickets for you and your family will set you back an arm and a leg. Combine this with food, drink and transport and an afternoon supporting your team can cost as much as a week-long holiday!
Instead, why not watch the game at home and take in the live action at your local sporting club? With many local sporting clubs offering free entry and cheap canteen prices, you’ll save a bucket load.
It’s more than a game
Local sport is about so much more than the game – it’s about community, passion and fun.
Catch finals fever and embrace the fun of finals. Every club has their own traditions, but you might expect to see traditions like face-painting, banners, cheer-squads and club chants.
Contribute to your community
Local sporting clubs do so much for their communities. Supporting your club during finals season (or all-year round) is a great way to give back.
Numerous studies point to the way being a part of a local sporting club can have a positive impact on mental health, physical health and even employment in a local area. A great local club is an invaluable asset to your community, so it’s in your best interests to do your bit to help keep these clubs afloat.
