How hard would you work for one last shot at your dream?

The Recruit is an award-winning, record-breaking sports reality show giving aspiring athletes a final chance to break into the AFL (Australian Football League).

These are classic weekend warriors, playing out their dreams in local, suburban regional leagues across Australia. Many missed their chance at the big time through injury, lack of maturity or plain bad luck.

The AFL is Australia’s biggest sports body and through the show, delivers a selection mechanism which guarantees the winning recruit a football contract with a league club.

The combination of real life and sport makes for a powerful, emotional and dramatic storytelling experience. It’s about the dream every aspiring athlete holds – playing professional sport. The prize is real. And it’s life changing.
