We love watching footy on home turf and we're passionate about the growth of the future stars of the game. It’s why we partner with the Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League and why we support the NAB Young Footballer of the Year program.

NAB Young Footballer of the Year Program

Each month, outstanding performances by young players in the Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League are rewarded with a nomination for the NAB Young Footballer of the Year. At the end of the season a panel of experts vote for an overall winner for both leagues using a 3-2-1 points basis.

We introduced the opportunity for fans to have their say, opening a Fan Vote to assist the expert panel in selecting the winner of the NAB Young Footballer of the Year. Each winner receives a $10,000 personal investment portfolio and a NAB Private Client Manager to assist with meeting their financial goals.

We recognise the impact that junior clubs have on a player’s career. It’s why each nominees’ junior club receives a NAB Club Recognition Award. This includes practical and financial resources to assist the club in continuing to develop future Australian football stars.
