Indigenous Round: What’s on in Queensland

The AFL will celebrate Indigenous Round in Round 9 of the 2015 Toyota AFL Premiership Season, May 29-31, and AFL Queensland is inviting all Clubs and Affiliate Leagues to celebrate the round at the same time.

Indigenous Round celebrates the connection between the game and Indigenous Australia by linking AFL fans/players/coaches/volunteers/staff to the Indigenous culture.

In 2015, the round will focus on celebrating the incredible contribution of past and present Indigenous players. The foundation for this theme is the 20th year anniversary of the AFL’s Racial Vilification Policy.

In each of the NEAFL, QAFL and QWAFL matches in Indigenous round, the three field umpires will wear either Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander flag socks. The two goals umpires in each match will also wave Torres Strait Island or Aboriginal flags for all scores. Both teams in the Gold Coast SUNS and Northern Territory Thunder match will wear indigenous jumpers.
