Win Cash & Equipment for Your Club

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

As the official eye care partner of the AFL for the past three years, OPSM has been looking after the eyes of the game’s best. As everyone knows though, the game is far bigger than just the eighteen clubs that compete in the AFL, it is the thousands of grass roots clubs throughout the land that do battle each weekend. 

That is why, in 2014, OPSM has launched the Sports Vision for Clubs program which is helping clubs Australia wide reach their potential. Selected clubs will be partnered with their local OPSM store who will provide them with $1000 cash and $1000 worth of Sherrin match balls.  

In addition to these great benefits, as the experts in eye care, OPSM optometrists will attend club training sessions and match days and offer eye screenings* to players, coaches, members, parents and fans alike. 

Current Hawthorn midfielder, and dual premiership player Shaun Burgoyne, knows just how important it is to have your vision as good as it can be.

“Having my eyes checked, and knowing my vision is as good as it can be, assures me I am preparing properly and be able to play the best footy that I can.”

“The Sports Vision for Clubs program is not only helping clubs with eye screening for their entire club but also giving them what they need most, cash incentives and playing equipment, and therefore helping clubs reach their potential.”

Adding to this was Will Sackville, OPSM Marketing Manager – Sponsorship, who said that the program is exciting for both OPSM and the community.

“After looking after the elite of the AFL for a few years now, our focus is now to provide support to grass roots footy clubs where we can. Along with the cash and equipment other incentives, we hope we can improve the vision of footy lovers throughout the country, both on and off the field.”

Applications are now open for this exciting new program, so to find out more about the Sports Vision for Clubs program and to apply for your club, head to
