The grass roots 'Best Off Ground' initiative and campaign launched by Swisse Wellness, ​a proud partner of the AFL and Swisse VFL Womens competition, searches for the most dedicated and passionate Australian Rules Football champion off the ground.

'Best Off Ground' is a digital and print campaign via creative agency SDWM and produced by Gen C, which is supported by social media and an exciting partnership with the Sunday Herald Sun. Celebrating unsung acts of greatness within the football community, the campaign encourages footy fans to nominate the 'behind the scenes' person they believe helps their club take on the season.

Says Dangerfield: "I'm personally giving 'three' votes to my local coach ​Jamie McKenzie ​for inspiring me to pursue a career in football. Rain, hail or shine he always pushed us from a young age to be and play our best.

"It's great to work with Swisse on a campaign that gives back to those who make it all happen. Without the efforts of the hardworking volunteers in the sport, we all wouldn't be where we are today."

The competition winner will be awarded with an unforgettable AFL experience including tickets to attend the 2017 AFL Brownlow Medal Dinner, two premium reserved seats to the 2017 Toyota AFL Grand Final, plus $5,000 for their nominated local footy club.
