Even the Prime Minister of Australia has wished the Queensland Under 18 Youth Girls side the best of luck at the national championships in Melbourne next month.

AFL Queensland’s pink footy crusade, which has seen a number of high profile celebrities sign the ball or messages of goodwill, keeps gaining momentum.

Prime Minister Julia Gillard stopped briefly in Brisbane late last week to sign the ball, bookending the signature of Queensland Premier Anna Bligh.

Lions coach Michael Voss, netball star Vicki Wilson, teen solo sailor Jessica Watson and Channel 10 and Channel 9 personalities are among others to have sent messages of goodwill to the team.

The football embarks on a journey down the Pacific Highway shortly to reach Melbourne by 7 September, when the national youth girls under 18 championships start.
