Backing Rugby League

We’re pumped to be bringin’ the footy for another season. We reckon sport is for everyone, which is why we’re continuing to provide equal financial support to the men’s and women’s game, from grassroots to the elite level.

Westpac Catch&Keep Is Back!

Remember when you caught a footy in the crowd, you had to throw it back? Not anymore. Catch&Keep is back again, and now at even more games this season.

When the footy sails into the stands at this year’s Magic Round, State of Origin, and Grand Final (men’s and women’s), if you’re one of the lucky fans who catches a ball, you get to keep it!

Supporting Footy from the Ground Up

Equal Partners of NRL and NRLW

We’re committed to providing equal financial support in the men’s and the women’s game with dollar-for-dollar funding. Together with the NRL, we’re looking forward to continue helping grow the game and enabling more people to play and enjoy the sport they love.

Supporting the Unsung Heroes of Rugby League

Westpac’s support goes beyond the field by presenting the NRL Community Awards, a celebration of the game’s unsung heroes. The awards recognise and celebrate the exceptional contribution of individuals that make a positive difference to communities through Rugby League.

Backing Female Rising Stars

We’re proud to help develop the next generation of female superstars across a range of grassroots programs. The Westpac Junior Sky Blues recognises and develops a select group of girls in NSW. The Westpac Future Maroons Academy provides training, as well as wellbeing programs, across Queensland. Westpac also supports the NRL RISE Rookie Academy. An initiative for talented young athletes in Community Rugby League to help take their game to the next level.

QLD Rugby League Partnership

Westpac are partners of the Queensland Maroons Men’s and Women’s teams, as well as grassroot clubs and athletes rising through the ranks to Maroons level.

Westpac are pleased to be throwing our support behind the Future Maroons Academy, a talent development pathway for female athletes excelling in the QLD clubs’ program to become future Maroons stars.

NSW Rugby League Partnership

Diversity and inclusion are at the very heart of our partnership with NSWRL, which is why we’ve made significant investment into women’s Rugby League at every level of the sport, from pathways through to elite programs.

Now in the second year of our partnership, Westpac is on the front of the iconic Blues and Sky Blues jerseys, for Australia’s most watched sporting event, the State of Origin.
