The Crows SANFL team will wear the 2021 Club Indigenous guernsey in the game against North Adelaide on Saturday at Prospect Oval.
Due to a guernsey clash with Glenelg in the SANFL Indigenous Round held in Round 13, the Club sought approval from the SANFL to wear it this weekend.
Head of Football Adam Kelly said it was important for the Club to honour our Indigenous players.
“Much like the Sir Doug Nicholls Round, the SANFL Indigenous Round celebrates the wonderful contribution that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander players have and continue to make in the SANFL competition,” Kelly said.
“It is only fitting that on the same day we will wear the same guernsey design in both the SANFL and AFL competitions.”
The 2021 Indigenous Guernsey was designed by current player Ben Davis and is a celebration of his Torres Strait Islander culture, representing Ben’s personal story of cultural discovery.
The guernsey also honours the country on which the Adelaide Crows AFL and SANFL sides train and play, with a Kaurna shield prominently displayed.
“We are really proud of Ben, not only for what is a wonderful design, but even more so for the care, commitment and respect that he has demonstrated in designing our 2021 guernsey,” Kelly said.
