2016 Toyota AFL Multicultural Round
This 2016 Toyota AFL Multicultural Round, we celebrate many wonderful cultures who share a passion for footy. The round will celebrate Many Cultures, One Game and highlight the contribution multicultural communities have made to the game’s history as well as welcoming new communities.
The GIANTS along with UNHCR have created the first Multicultural guernsey that will be worn by the GIANTS during the match. The concept behind this guernsey is #EveryoneBelongs - sport is one of the most powerful vehicles in helping to foster social cohesion and community integration.
This year the AFL & GIANTS are bringing the festival to Sydney. On Saturday, July 9 from 11am – 7pm be prepared for the extraordinary as we celebrate the many cultures that make this great game special as well as welcoming new communities. This FREE event offers rides, a taste of the world food stalls, AFL clinics, henna and face painters, multicultural workshops, Arabic Drummers, Bollywood dancing plus many more performers throughout the day. Justice Crew will perform LIVE in the afternoon followed by a dynamic fireworks display.
