All SANFL Statewide Super League teams will wear a special Indigenous-themed guernsey during round 13. A welcome to country also will be performed before matches to recognise Indigenous people as the first custodians of the land. The round is a celebration and recognition of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander players in our Statewide Super League who have and continue to make such a significant contribution to SANFL and football more broadly.
