Community clubs in NSW/ACT embrace Sir Doug Nicholls Round

2021 saw an unprecedented number of community clubs getting involved in Sir Doug Nicholls Round across NSW and the ACT.


For two rounds 28/29 May – 5/6 June, clubs were invited to celebrate the contribution Indigenous players have on AFL at the grassroots and elite levels. The response was phenomenal, with dozens of clubs organising acknowledgements of Country, smoking ceremonies and other cultural events. Significantly, around 15 clubs created commemorative guernseys to mark the round.


This year’s theme way ‘Our Legacy’.


Thank you to every club who went above and beyond to make the fortnight of celebrations so special.
