ADCO partners with Carlton FC in support of their Indigenous advocacy
ADCO is proud to support Carlton Football Club’s launch of their 2021 AFL Indigenous guernsey. Designed by Melbourne artist and proud Gunditjmara woman Laura Thompson, the guernsey was created in consultation with Carlton’s seven current Indigenous players.
ADCO is gladly supporting Carlton’s Indigenous advocacy, education and awareness raising activities and are also undertaking the $45 million redevelopment of Carlton’s traditional home, IKON Park.
The guernsey pays respect to the Traditional Custodians of the land on which the Carlton Football Club is located, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. It also highlights the diverse Aboriginal cultures among the players and honours their cultural identities, families, and the Country to which they belong.
The guernsey was launched for the 2021 Sir Doug Nicholls Round, debuted when the Blues played the Swans at the SCG on Sunday 30 May in the Marngrook Game.
