Community, Care, Pathway, Development, Success
The Dragon Club was formed in 2013 by a group of 10 business men, all past players of the Bentleigh Football Club and all passionate about the club. The members, most of whom did not have time to dedicate to the club full time wanted to find a way to support the club in their own time and utilizing their own specialist skills.
The Dragon club operates outside of the football club and does not run the club, committee or football department. The Dragon Club’s focus is on business partnerships, marketing and sponsorship. Building and growing an extensive network of business partnerships, products and services.
Through this we seek to not only benefit the Bentleigh Football Club but also create pathways and opportunities for young men and women in our community. We also seek to contribute to the community through charitable donation and our own provident fund.
The Dragon Club will be the major driver behind a Season Launch each year and continue the long and much loved tradition of the sponsors lunch and ever growing Dragon Club business lunch.
