Big Footy Sales Challenge

Football players helped The Big Issue celebrate Christmas by taking part in our Footy Sales Challenge.

Players from eight clubs, across three football codes, took to the streets to sell our Christmas Edition alongside a vendor. 

Brisbane Broncos, Brisbane Lions, Carlton, Greater Western Sydney Giants, Melbourne Storm, Port Adelaide, Queensland Reds and Sydney Swans competed to sell the most copies of The Big Issue. Collectively, they sold 87 magazines and 26 calendars.

Congratulations to Tom Bell, Daniel Rich and Matt Eagles from the Brisbane Lions for winning the challenge and taking home The Big Issue's inaugural Footy Sales Challenge trophy.
