Essendon Football Club is pleased to confirm its ongoing support of the Tiwi Bombers and Wadeye Magic football clubs.

In 2014 the Bombers will provide both clubs with financial support and mentorship whilst continuing to engage directly with the local communities in both remote regions, including the much loved community visits by players and staff.

Community Manager Cameron Britt said assisting the club’s remote indigenous partner communities remained a key aspect of Essendon's commitment to its community programs.  

“We see our relationship with the communities of Wadeye and the Tiwi Islands as a really important part of the work that we do as a club within the broader Australian community,” Britt sad.

“Both clubs will receive $20,000 to invest in the development and growth of their football programs. It is not only this financial support that the club offers, both teams will benefit from mentoring and access to player role models."

"We see this commitment as helpful for ensuring that both communities continue to build successful and sustainable clubs.”

Essendon visited both communities on three ocassions throughout 2013 season including a recent visit by star players Patrick Ryder and Leroy Jetta.
