Footy. It’s more than just a game every week. It’s driven by passion and dedication. From team managers to trainers, time keepers and ground keepers, Swisse wants to champion the off-ground legends who give it their all, day after day.


Swisse Best Off Ground competition is looking for the behind-the-scenes heroes who are as integral to the club as the players themselves. Although you never see them kicking a goal, for these local champions, game day is every day. And now it’s time to celebrate them.

Patrick Dangerfield, Swisse Ambassador and Brownlow Medal Winner, explains, “Give your vote to your local off-ground legend now for a chance to win them some amazing prizes. Tickets to 2018 Charles Brownlow Medal and 2018 Toyota AFL Grand Final, plus $5,000 for your nominated local Aussie Rules club. All you have to do is nominate that special un-sung hero who gives it their all.”


The Swisse Best Off Ground winner 2017 was Rod Dumesny from Horsham Demons Football and Netball Club. Reflecting on the well-deserved accolade, Rod says, “It was humbling to receive the Swisse Best Off Ground Award. The club is something I’ve put a lot of my life into, so to get recognised like that was really fantastic.”

“It was wonderful to go to the Charles Brownlow Medal Dinner and the Toyota AFL Grand Final, and the cash prize has been a great help to the club, as we put it towards renovating our clubrooms. I’d encourage everyone to enter their local Best Off Ground hero, and show them what they mean to their club.”
