Feeling the roar of the crowd in your chest at your first ever AFL match. Growing out of dozens of jerseys as a kid, but never growing out of the game. Taking a sick day for the Grand Final… before it became an official public holiday.

Every footy fan has a moment or memory that defines their love for the sport. What’s yours?

The Australian Prostate Centre and 3AW’s Ross Stevenson want you to write a Love Letter to Football. In doing so, you’ll be supporting the treatment and research of prostate cancer – a disease that affects 1 in 6 Australian men each year.

Just by telling us why you love football, you could win two tickets to our annual Love Letter to Football fundraiser. Held on June 6, 2019 at Cargo Hall in Melbourne, our lucky winner will get to rub shoulders with football stars and media personalities. You’ll even have your Love Letter read out by a member of 3AW’s football team.

If you are under 18, you can also enter! Our winner in the under 18’s category will win a $250 AFL shop voucher. No matter who you are or what the game means to you, help us create a world where no man dies of prostate cancer by submitting your Love Letter to Football today!

Here’s what you need to know before submitting your love letter:

  • Entrants under the age of 18 need written permission by a parent or guardian to take part.
  • Submissions must be 350 words or less.
  • Donations are not mandatory for entry (although they are encouraged!).
  • You must begin your letter with “Dear Footy, I love you…”
  • Don’t be afraid to use drama, humour or emotion in your letter – we want to feel your love for footy!
  • Get creative by writing a short-story, poem or even a song.
  • One lucky winner over the age of 18 will win two tickets to the Love Letters to Football event on June 6 2019, hosted by Ross Stevenson.
  • One winner under 18 years of age will win a $250 AFL shop voucher.
  • Both winners will have their Love Letter read out at the Love Letter to Football event by a member of 3AW’s football team.
  • Winners are required to pay for their own transport and accommodation, if needed.
  • EVERY entry helps to support awareness and treatment of prostate cancer.

The winning entries will be picked by Ross Stevenson. Only the winning entrants will be contacted.

Good luck!!!
