AFL Inclusion Carnival
Blacktown International Sportspark is proudly the venue of choice for the 2019 AFL National Inclusion Carnival will be held in July 2019.
Held annually, the AFL National Inclusion Carnival brings together male footballers with an intellectual disability from across the country to take part in a week-long round-robin competition.
Footballers hailing from all corners of Australia will have the opportunity to wear the representative jumper, with teams from Northern Territory, NSW/ACT, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria Country, Victoria Metro, and Western Australia set to take to the field.
AFL NSW/ACT Chief Executive Officer Sam Graham said New South Wales is excited to host the Carnival for the first time.
“We’re delighted to have the opportunity to host the 2019 AFL National Inclusion Carnival at Blacktown International Sportspark, in the heart of Western Sydney. I’d like to thank the New South Wales Government, in particular Minister for Disability Services and Multiculturalism Ray Williams along with Blacktown City Council for their partnership and support,” Mr. Graham said.
Each participant in the Carnival must be male, over 16 years of age and have an intellectual disability.
The AFL National Inclusion Carnival will kick off on Monday July 15 and run until Saturday July 20.
