Mario Fenech's Biography

From Rugby League to his media and marketing success Mario Fenech is a popular speaker who is passionate about youth and community issues such as bullying diet and health. Mario holds a place in Australian sporting history as one of the most passionate Rugby League players to play the game. Today Mario continues to be acknowledged for his ongoing contribution to Rugby League and the wider Community.

Since retiring as a player 15 years ago, Mario has remained in the media spotlight. Among other media engagements, Mario plays the lovable character (‘the Falcon’) on Channel Nine’s award winning Footy Show, while also fulfilling his role as the NRL Sponsorship Manager.

Mario’s reputation as a player and his work in the media and community have seen Mario amass a huge fan base that extends across 3 generations. Mario is just as popular with the younger generation who know him as the Falcon as he is with those who followed his Rugby League career. You only need to walk down the street with Mario to experience his popularity with people of all ages and cultures who want a photo with him, an autograph or just to shake his hand.

Mario has a face that people instantly recognise and the ability to gain rapport with literally anyone he comes into contact with. These attributes along with the diversity of his fan base place Mario in high demand with companies wanting to increase awareness and acceptance of their brands. Put simply - people trust the brands and companies Mario is associated with. 

Mario is also known as a great story teller and motivator with a knack for captivating an audience. He is highly sought after as a key-note speaker and for guest appearances at corporate functions.

Schools also recognise Mario as an important role model for our youth particularly so as Ambassador for One Community. Mario overcame peer pressure to remain a non-drinker, he experienced bullying first hand and he knows how self-respect and self-believe can turn challenges into achievements. Mario is often invited to schools to tell his story and to educate students on the importance of correct diet, health and fitness. You will often see Mario surrounded by a large audience of students who are hanging on his every word as he explains how he overcame the bullies, peer pressure, self-image and many other challenges our youth face today.
