Stuart's a Taylor-made Brisbane Roar ambassador

WIDE Bay's Stuart Taylor was presented as one of Brisbane Roar's 19 community ambassadors during the A-League club's 4-1 loss to Adelaide United on Friday night.

Brisbane Roar's first Community Ambassador Program is designed to "connect Brisbane Roar with local communities across Queensland through the promotion of football, community activity and greater communication with local community groups".

Chief Ambassador Jim Bellos said the community ambassadors come from diverse backgrounds and experiences and are united in their passion for football and their demonstrated care for the community.

"We are so proud of who we have chosen and we are hoping for double the numbers next year," he said.

"They love their football, they share their football and they are engaged in their community.

"There is no other initiative like this in the Hyundai A-League and we are hoping that it spreads to other clubs."

After the November launch of the program, the Roar received a positive response from the community and more than 40 applications were lodged showing interest in becoming community ambassadors.

Their roles include representing the Roar at community events, promote local football and being a positive role model.
