Match Day Sponsor

Match Day Sponsor Denman Prospect will have a marquee lounge set up on the west forecourt. The marquee will have virtual reality goggles as well as a TV screen display which will give viewers an idea of what the new suburb of Denman Prospect will look like in 10 years' time.

They will be running a competition 'A View From The Top', with entrants going into the draw to win a helicopter flight over Canberra and a travel voucher worth $1,500. Attendees can pick up a goggle box from the marquee, follow the prompts on the goggle box site or the Denman Prospect website to enter the competition. Winners will be announced the week following.

Throughout the year as part of the Homes for Homes points for cash initiative, Denman Prospect have been donating $100 for every point scored by the Raiders at home games to the Homes for Homes charity, supporting homelessness in Canberra. A cheque presentation will take place post-game on field with the total amount raised this season.

Match Day Charity – Menslink

Match Day Charity Menslink will have volunteers positioned on both forecourts and will be raising awareness, handing out wristbands and collecting donations for this worthwhile cause supporting young men in Canberra.
