Official Risk Partner and sponsor of AFL and AFLW

Marsh are proud to play our part in supporting the game we love over the past 17 years by providing risk management and insurance broking services to the AFL, AFLW and its community to ensure players and teams, from grassroots to elite,  and the businesses who support the game can play on.

Since 2004, we have partnered with the AFL to help protect and empower the AFL community and assist in creating a safe, enjoyable platform for hundreds of thousands of spectators, officials and players young and old, around Australia.

Protecting the AFL community

As the national insurance broker for the AFL and AFLW, we help to protect the AFL community; COVID Safety Officers; 18 elite AFL clubs; AFLW, State Associations and Leagues; 96% of community football clubs and players; every NAB AFL Auskick participant and community centre; over 450 Councils and local footy grounds and businesses across Australia. 

In partnership with the AFL, we use data and tools to constantly anticipate and mitigate evolving risk. Our National Risk Protection Program is keeping future stars in the game and creating a pathway to a safer game for all.

2020 Marsh Community Series

In 2020 Marsh supported the  AFL's pre-season competition, the Marsh Community Series, which celebrated the football and business community around AFL; the local clubs, people, councils and businesses who support and love the game. 

Marsh took the game back to regional areas like Whyalla, and gave players the platform to prepare for the season ahead:

Acknowledging community heroes during the Australian bushfires

As a mark of respect and acknowledgement, local Emergency Services representatives from across the country who assisted in the bushfire crisis tossed the coin at each of the 2020 Marsh Community Series games.

George Katris is a 20 year State Emergency Service volunteer who  led a six-day taskforce deployment during the peak of the bushfire disaster. In honour of his bravery, spirit and sacrifice, we invited George on-field to toss the coin before the first siren sounded for the 2020 Marsh Community Series.

Kicking goals for local AFL clubs

We gave kids an unforgettable experience by challenging their skills to win equipment for their local club.

Supporting Australian bushfire affected communities

St Kilda competed in the 2020 Toyota AFL Final Series for the first time in almost a decade. Their story of resilience started with the devastating bushfires in early 2020, which impacted communities like Kangaroo Island. In support of the bushfire rebuild, Marsh funded a special trip for St Kilda to visit our client Western Districts Community Sports Club, to lift their spirits on their road to recovery.

Marsh helped clubs get back on their feet by raising funds for the AFL Community Relief Fund. We also donated our insurance broking services to secure insurance coverage for athletes in the AFL State of Origin match for Bushfire Relief, held at Marvel Stadium. 

Did you know? Many of Australia’s volunteer firefighters and first responders to the bushfire crisis are supported to undertake these heroic acts through insurance deals and schemes which Marsh has directly brokered.
