Anzac Day Clash!
On the 25th of April each year, the biggest
blockbuster in the AFL season takes place
between Collingwood and Essendon at the
MCG in Melbourne.
Over the years, both teams have scored
victories, but in 2013 it was all about the
Mighty Bombers!!!!
At The G
The annual Dreamtime match was first held in 2005 between
Richmond and Essendon. These teams were chosen to play in
the match because their combined jumper colours make up the
Aboriginal Flag and both teams have Aboriginal players.
The aim of the indigenous round is to celebrate the
contribution of indigenous players in the AFL.
FACT: There are currently
85 indigenous players in
the AFL.
The Fans!!!
At the
moment, the
Essendon
Football Club
has 52,456
members.
Game Day
• My interest in the Bombers started when mum took me to my first AFL
match in 2005.
• Soon after I got a jumper, scarf, beanie and some badges. This was the
start of my Essendon addiction.
• I sometimes go on the train to the football when Essendon is playing here
in Melbourne.
• I get dressed up in my red and black and always cheer loudly in the game.
• The best part is when Essendon win and I get to sing the theme song with
the crowd.
Thanks for
watching!!!
