FAN+ Australia Partners With The Australian Sports Foundation

FAN+ Australia, a centralised marketplace that connects fans with their favourite celebrity’s, television personalities and sports stars, has partnered with the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF) to donate a percentage of revenue to support Australia’s future athletes.

Under the new agreement, a percentage of each sporting experience sold on the FAN+ Platform will be donated to the foundation, with 70% of the fee still going back to the athlete or celebrity.

“One of our key objectives when starting Fan+ was to ensure that we gave back to the community,” Fan+ CEO and Founder, Rod Harys said.

“For Fan+, the Australian Sports Foundation is the perfect fit and we are honoured to be working with the Foundation.”

“The Australian Sports Foundation provides important revenue streams for Aussies sports organisations from grassroots, juniors and district through to elite sports, so the fit for us is perfect.”

One of the Australian Sports Foundations key projects is to raise funds for athletes who are training and participating to achieve State or National level representation can sign up and fundraise to support their sporting needs.

Athletes offering experiences include Matt Levy, Australian Paralympic swimmer and Australian kayaker, Jo Bridgen Jones.

Talking about the partnership, Ryan Holloway, National Partnership Director of the ASP, said he was looking forward to working with FAN+.

“When you look at the FAN+  platform and see how many amazing athlete experiences on it, it also tells another story.

“Each of these athletes and legends on Fan+ was once juniors and someone committed to their putting them on a pathway to becoming an elite athlete,” he said.

“Hopefully we will be able to further the careers of other aspiring athletes with the support FAN+ as they head out on their journey.”
