The 2019 Toyota AFL Sir Doug Nicholls Round will be celebrated across rounds 10 and 11 of the Toyota AFL Premiership Season, beginning with the Marngrook match between Sydney and Collingwood at the SCG, followed by the annual Dreamtime at the G match between Essendon and Richmond on Saturday night.
This year, the Round will pay tribute to the contribution of Essendon champion and Australian Football Hall of Fame member Michael Long.
In honour of the Round, all 18 clubs will wear special Indigenous-themed guernseys and the AFL umpires will also wear uniforms that represent the Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander communities with the artwork designed by two students from Worawa Aboriginal College.
Michael Long Foundation
The Michael Long Foundation, funds education and football programs for indigenous people. This is achieved primarily through the MLLLC managed by AFLNT.
These programs help unlock the potential in indigenous youth and enrich lives, while ensuring participants receive the same opportunities as their non-indigenous peers.
