The new football season is underway in Perth, with local Brazilian club, BrOzzy returning to the field with a new club President.
The newest president of the Como football club was elected amidst the return of the winter season.
Attilio Venturin takes over the position from former president Adriano Luiz Sansgiolo who looked after the club for the past eight years.

The newest president, Venturin who joined BrOzzy in 2018, takes the position aiming to uphold the legacy of the Football Club.
“My passion for football and for my Brazilian heritage encourages me to give my very best every week to achieve the club’s goals,” Attilio says.
The club founded by president Adriano Luiz Sansgiolo in 2013, helps represent the Brazilian community in Western Australia.
Venturin, has already begun making changes, “I aim to establish junior teams for kids starting from the age of five and a women’s team in the future.”
Committee members alike, are striving to uphold the inclusive legacy for which the club is known for, as well as maintaining the sense of pride in the heritage Sansgiolo has left.
The club’s success has been achieved through good communication and planning channels, as well as member engagement.
The team’s good atmosphere on game days is well known throughout the football community and Venturin agrees this is a structure he would like to maintain.
Like any Brazilian, football is a passion that runs in their blood.
Diego Bernardes, 27, has been in the Seniors Amateur First Division 3 team for just short of two years and agrees.
“Football is more like a religion for a Brazilian,” Diego says.
The club welcomes the new president with the community dedicated to continuing the spirit towards the sport this winter season.
