Celebrate the contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to the game of football with AFLW Indigenous Round

AFLW Indigenous round kicks off this Friday to highlight the contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to the game of football. The round will celebrate the relationship between the game and First Nations Australians by connecting AFL fans to Indigenous cultures. 

This year’s theme is ‘Empowered, Hear Us’ to acknowledge the journey of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women both on and off the football field. The round will draw on stories of empowerment, strength, resilience and determination, with umpires wearing uniforms designed by two students from Worawa Aboriginal College, Kyanna McIntosh and Kylinda Alice.

All AFLW matches in Indigenous Round will have paintings on the centre circle acknowledging the Traditional Owners of the land. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags will also be included on the ground.

Indigenous Round is round eight of this year’s AFWL fixture, with a Victorian lineup of Melbourne v Kangaroos at Casey Fields in Cranbourne East and Richmond v Geelong at Swinburne Centre in Richmond.
