Tigers to celebrate First Nations Round

The Club is excited to celebrate First Nations Round in its upcoming clash against Central District.

First Nations Round is a celebration and recognition of all SANFL First Nations players past and present who have made, and continue to make, such a significant contribution to our game.

The Indigenous guernsey was designed in 2022 by Amanda Turner, who comes from a small community called Ltyentye Apurte (Santa Teresa), around 85km south east of Alice Springs. It took her about a week to create.

The guernsey will be worn by the Reserves and League side on Sunday July 2 at Stratarama Stadium, as well as Saturday July 8 against Norwood at Coopers Stadium.

The overall theme of the guernsey is about the Glenelg community and coming together.

The guernsey represents not only the players, but the whole training group, the people within the club and the Bays community – it brings us all together. The circles represent the ground we walk on and everyone coming together as one.

The design also reflects upon the club going through the journey of the football season across the year, as well as our ‘all in’ trademark.
