CLAYTON, Australia – December 17, 2008: On Saturday 6th December, 2008, Woy Woy FC accepted a cheque from Hyundai Motor Company Australia, after being selected by the Central Coast Mariners as the beneficiary of the Hyundai‘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 14 of the ‘Goals for Grassroots’ program, Central Coast Mariners nominated the Woy Woy FC. Andre Gumprecht’s late equaliser ensured a share of the spoils for the Central Coast Mariners in their 1-1 draw against the Queensland Roar last Saturday evening; ensuring the Woy Woy FC received a $2,000 donation from Hyundai.

“Although we are a reasonably large club this donation will allow us to further develop our club with new equipment and coach development will ensure the growth of the world game in our region and a greater standard of facilities to our members” said Anne-Marie of the Woy Woy FC.

“These clubs and their members are part of the future for football in Australia and the Hyundai ‘Goals for Grassroots’ program is a great way to ensure that the future is being cared for even in our rural communities” said Sasho Petrovski, key forward for Central Coast Mariners.

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

Grassroots clubs selected will benefit from an initial $1,000 donation from Hyundai Motor Company Australia, and an additional $1,000 per goal scored by the home team that nominated them (up to $5,000 total).

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