Highlights from the EJ Whitten Legends game

Past football greats suit up once again in the annual clash between Victoria and the All-Stars

September 2, 2016  12:00 AM

The AFL, with the support of its broadcast partners the Seven Network, Foxtel/Fox Footy and Telstra will partner with the EJ Whitten Foundation to host the annual Chemist Warehouse EJ Whitten Legends Game supporting prostate cancer for men’s health. The match will again be played at Etihad Stadium during the week's break between round 23 and the Toyota AFL Finals Series.

The highly popular Legends Game brings together a collection of the AFL’s greatest retired champions to take the field under the banners of Victoria and the All-Stars. The event builds on the traditional interstate rivalry matches between Victoria and the South Australian ‘Croweaters’, which Mr Football (EJ) played in, loved and created such brilliant contests within. The annual match started back in 1995 at the Whitten Oval, before outgrowing this venue and moving to its home at Etihad Stadium, where it has been since 2003. Victoria leads the win-loss ledger at 11 – 9, with one draw. The foundation honours the legacy of EJ Whitten, who died after a long and public battle with prostate cancer.

The EJ Whitten Legends Game will raise vital funds for the EJ Whitten Foundation and their support of men’s health through awareness programs and raising funds for prostate cancer research. The AFL estimates that 35% of the donations raised by the fundraiser will be distributed to the EJ Whitten Foundation and Ladder Project Limited.
