Hyundai and the Queensland Roar kick goals for football in Redcliffe - (Australia)

August 28th, 2008

The Peninsula Power Football Club accepted a cheque from Hyundai Motor Company Australia, after being selected by the Queensland Roar as the recipient of the Hyundai's 'Goals for Grassroots' program.

Already a proud supporter and sponsor of the Socceroos and naming rights sponsor of the Hyundai A-League, Hyundai is committed to investing in grassroots football within local communities around Australia through its 'Goals for Grassroots' program.

For Round 2 of the 'Goals for Grassroots'program, the Queensland Roar nominated the Peninsula Power Football Club. The Queensland Roar scored one goal in their 1-1 draw with Adelaide United on the weekend ensuring the Peninsula Power Football Club received a $2,000 donation from Hyundai and the Queensland Roar.

"It's fantastic to see a company like Hyundai getting behind grassroots football in our area. Their support for the game on this level is very encouraging for all involved with football," said Craig Fearriegel of the Peninsula Power Football Club.

Craig Moore, key defender for the Queensland Roar said, "These kids are part of the future for football in Brisbane and surrounding areas and the Hyundai Goals for Grassroots program is a great way to ensure that that future is being looked after".

One home game per round of the 2008/09 Hyundai A-League Season has been selected to be part of the program. To be considered for a donation ahead of each home match, local grassroots clubs should complete an application on-line at www.ilovefootball.com.au and submit why their local grassroots club should receive support.

To be eligible to enter, the local grassroots clubs must have an association affiliated to the Football Federation Australia.
