After a tough couple of years for Australia’s small businesses, we are giving a few of them a well-deserved plug.

Earlier in March, we kicked off our Telstra Big Plugs for Small Business competition, giving away our ad space during Round 8 of the 2022 Toyota AFL Premiership and Round 9 of the 2022 NRL Telstra Premiership.

From comic book stores and pet groomers to driving schools and disability services, 17 small businesses from across Australia will get a big plug at the nation’s biggest football stadiums in a takeover of Telstra’s advertising space.

The winning small businesses will have their business showcased on the big screen, the signage, and even on the broadcast, helping them to reach millions of fans and living rooms. It’s unrivalled exposure and we’re excited that it’s going to a bunch of great people and their businesses.

Now, say hello to our winners

Keep an eye out for them this week at Round 8 of the 2022 Toyota AFL Premiership season, and Round 9 of the 2022 NRL Telstra Premiership – or find out more about the incredible work each business does below.
