Twenty sixteen marks the 150th anniversary of Australian Football in Queensland; a milestone that provides a fantastic opportunity to not only celebrate the history of our code, but the history of our clubs.
We want to hear the stories of all our Queensland clubs, no matter how young or old.
AFL Queensland is inviting clubs across the state to get involved in our HOMECOMING theme and establish a HOMECOMING round or event for 2016.
The aim of HOMECOMING is to provide an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions, both on and off the field, which members of our junior and senior clubs have made.
HOMECOMING celebrations can be as large, or as small, as clubs wish wish to make them.
A FEW IDEAS:
Homecoming Hero Choose one player each home game with a story pre-match and match day coin-toss.
Captains Lunch Invite all former captains back to the club for a pre-match lunch.
Best & Fairest BBQ Invite all former Best & Fairest winners back to the club for a match day.
Volunteer Recognition Recognise outstanding volunteer contribution to your club with a special 150th certificate.
Homecoming Round Invite all former players, supporters, volunteers, coaches, sponsors to come back for one homecoming game.
Homecoming Ball Theme your night-of-nights with a homecoming ball. You could even theme tables from different eras.
Video Take the time to film a short 2 or 3 minute video and tell us your club’s story.
