AFL superstar and South Australian local, Brodie Grundy, has been announced as the 2021 Wolf Blass AFL campaign ambassador.
The footballer has also shared his thoughts on what 2020 has taught him personally and how it will shape his chase in football and in life.
“Living in a hub for most of the 2020 season meant that, like many Aussies in lockdown, I did not have access to outlets that provide great balance and perspective in my life,” he said. “Not having my support network and routines such as study, or simply walking the dogs, has highlighted to me how important work-life balance is in living a happy life and performing on-field.
“My intention and goals for 2021 are as much personal as they are professional. I am always striving to be the best player I can, that’s a given however putting time into areas outside the game is equally, if not more important – whether that’s being a better friend, or member of the community.”
“I find that when I balance my focus between my personal and professional life, I am able to approach the game with more vigour and motivation. A big part of that renewed energy comes from traveling and the perspective it brings. I’m looking forward to chasing more adventures off-field in in 2021, whether that be surfing or camping with the dogs.”
Wolf Blass Global Marketing Manager Robert Knott said: “Following a season of fans watching games from afar and players playing with no crowds in the stands, we have a newfound appreciation for the game and the joy it brings to football fans. It’s what brings us together as a nation and we are excited to be able to give fans an opportunity to literally live and breathe the game once again.
“Brodie is a great ambassador for our Chase the Finals campaign as he has such a great perspective on not just his professional career and where he’s wanting to take it, but also a focus on chasing personal balance and growth. This is very much aligned with the essence and values of Wolf Blass.”
