The Sea Eagles Foundation is committed to honouring and preserving the past, so that all Manly Warringah Sea Eagles supporters and the wider community can understand, appreciate and celebrate the rich history and heritage of this great Club.
Since entering the competition in 1947, our Manly has won 8 Premierships and has played in 19 Grand Finals.
Our aim is to ensure we recognise and acknowledge those who have played a role in shaping this great Club into the success that it is today through various initiatives so that former players remain part of the Sea Eagles family and that their legacy lives on well into the future.
With over 75 years of history, the Sea Eagles Foundation works closely with the Golden Eagles (Manly Warringah Golden Eagles Association) with a focus on engaging and recognising former players and officials.
Through donations to the Sea Eagles Foundation, the Club aims to:
- Increase recognition and acknowledgement of former players and officials.
- Provide further opportunities for former players and officials.
- Ensure the wellbeing of former players, officials and their families.
Some of our initiatives include:
Manly Warringah Golden Eagles Association (Golden Eagles) is a group of former players, who turned out for the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles in any grade, not just first grade. The group not only raise money for worthy causes, but they give back and support past Sea Eagles players, coaching staff and anyone associated with the Manly family.
Celebrating 75 years of tradition, the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles flags proudly adorned the shoreline of Manly beach.
Eight Premiership teams and all players with more than 100 first grade games for Manly were recognised during the first half of 2021.
