Get your Fanshake on

A Fanshake is a cast-iron agreement between rival footy fans. You back your team against a mate’s team and both of you pledge to do something good for the game if you lose. Too easy!

Set a Fanshake

Choose a rival footy fan and make a pledge on an upcoming game.

Fulfil the Fanshake

The defeated fan will make good on their pledge – be sure to capture the moment with a pic or video.

The Sausage Sizzler

When the siren sounds, when the crowds have gone, who will be left to strap on the apron and tong it up for the good of the game? It could be feeding the footy club, your rowdy mates at half time or perhaps a hungry group of Auskickers. Get your snags and condiments ready. Do not lose this one. The sausage sizzle just heated up.

The Oval Mow

To the victor go the spoils. To the defeated go the gardening gloves. There’s an oval somewhere in need of a mow… by hand, with scissors or aboard a ride-on. It could be your local oval or just a handball-sized backyard. If backing your team backfires you’ll be bringing the mower and working up a sweat.

The Rival Guernsey

If you win, you'll be covered in glory. If you don't, you’ll be covered in the other teams colours. That's right, if your team doesn’t get up, you'll have to wear their Guernsey. And not just for a moment. You'll have to sport it for an entire day. And people thought picking up the wooden spoon was tough.

The Boot Buffer

Chewy on ya boot! You'd better hope it's not your side that can't kick straight, or you could end up cleaning your mate's dirty footy boots. Or perhaps it’s the boots of an entire local footy club. On the other hand, if you're feeling confident, then your boots might end up shining like a Gold Coast Captain’s noggin.

The Profile Pretender

People will LOL when they see you've replaced your social media profile pic with a rival team's colours. It could be with face paint, their team’s flag or a selfie with their mascot… Whatever it is, your profile switch will certainly raise a few #eyebrows.

Create Your Own

Go on, use your imagination and create your own #fanshake pledge. Perhaps the defeated Fanshaker will have to sing the winning team's song on the bus. Maybe they’ll be handing out membership forms for the other team’s club. Or perhaps they'll be stepping in to umpire at your local oval, dressed like a 1980's ump. Whatever it is, make it fun, make it good for the game, but most of all… make it now.

The Home time Hero

Public transport never sounded so sweet. After the siren sounds, the defeated will have to gallantly sing the winning side's team song on their tram, train or bus ride home. Don't worry, many fans do it, it's just those footy-loving Pavarottis aren't wearing the losing side's colours.

The Magnificent Brownie

Oh sweet, sweet victory. It's even sweeter when one fan has to bake up a storm in the kitchen in celebration of the other team. Make it creative, make it special and make it in the winning side's colours. Brownies, cakes or a Flaming Bombe Alaska - whatever you bake, make sure you post it online so the whole world can get a taste of victory.

The Club Crafternoon

Following a drubbing on the field, the 'non-victorious one' will be facing a ton of crepe paper and crafting it into a banner for the winning Fanshaker. So good luck to your team, otherwise you'll pay the price of loyalty with claggy hands and paper cuts. Not much fun. But at least your 'art' will get noticed at the next match, even if it's not supporting your boys.
