Hamza was appointed Ambassador of Back to Belmore in November 2016. Born in Chicago (United States), he migrated to Australia with his family when he was four years old settling in the Canterbury-Bankstown district where he has lived and spent most of his life. Hamza first endeared himself to Back to Belmore in 2009 as a 16-year-old volunteer to take part in the organisation's mission to save Belmore Sports Ground.
Good role models in sport come along rarely. One who bridges cultural divides and brings communities together is even rarer. As the first Muslim to ever serve as a volunteer youth leader for Back to Belmore, Hamza is a genuine role model for all young athletes. He brings a unique set of skills and innate qualities to amplify our voice and our mission to his extensive network of contacts in the community at large.
Hamza has an outstanding commitment to the redevelopment of Belmore Sports Ground as a top-class venue and the development of aspiring sports players in the Canterbury-Bankstown district. With his alignment to many local institutes, Hamza is expertly placed to bring both his extensive knowledge to Back to Belmore as well as his unflinching passion and dedication to the betterment of local sport as a whole and young athletes in particular.
A long-serving volunteer, Hamza is symbolic of all that is good, wholesome and inclusive about community sport. He is a steadfast advocate and champion for the preservation of Belmore Sports Ground, dedicating his time and passion to a cause near and dear to his heart. Hamza plays a pivotal role in raising awareness and in promoting our cause. He is keen to use his skills and experience to help Back to Belmore fulfil its mandate to the Canterbury-Bankstown community.
Back to Belmore is truly delighted and honoured to have Hamza as our Ambassador. His efforts have made a big difference to our cause.
