There’s always a huge amount of excitement around the start of the AFL season, aside from the typical hype surrounding this favourite Aussie sport, there are always a range of “featured rounds” during the footy season to keep an eye out for.
Following on from the success of the inaugural AFL Womens pre-season, the league is well aware that stepping outside the box of social expectations and bringing people together pays off. This is why the AFL are leaders in setting the bar high with their featured rounds. Even if you’re not a footy fan you’ll be amazed at the quality of production that the AFL put into each “featured round” show and the marketing that goes along with it.
AFL 2017 Featured Rounds
This year the multicultural round will be a marquee clash between Greater Western Sydney and Fremantle. This round comes with a host of festivals that celebrate the multicultural of Australia and the sport. The AFL is committed to diversity throughout the league and this is a chance to celebrate it and showcase the talents that come from all corners of the globe and all backgrounds of players.
The multicultural round will start in round 19 with Hawthorn and Sydney kicking off at the MCG on the Friday night. The real focus will be on July 29 at Spotless Stadium when GWS and Fremantle battle it out and promote multiculturalism and diversity through Australia’s great sporting culture. This is a vital way to connect people to the sport and break down racial barriers so that Australia, and the sport, can have a better future.
