Our Queensland clubs will assist you and your family with transitioning by providing accommodation in a hotel or our player network initially.
That may result in permanent accommodation (where the residence has a spare room), and as a temporary measure (if you prefer to retain your own house). The goal is to ensure that you don’t incur unnecessary expense when you first move to Queensland by providing a period of free accommodation.
SunshineFooty.com core focus will be;
1) To provide athletes with their own unique marketing platform to highlight their skills to potentially interested parties.
2) To provide clubs, coaches and sports management organisations with a specialised pool of AFL recruits.
