HAWTHORN star Lance Franklin will captain the Indigenous All Stars team against Richmond on February 8.

The match, to be played at Traeger Park in Alice Springs, will follow a three-day camp to be attended by 60 indigenous AFL players.

It also coincides with the Tigers' Australia Post AFLCommunity Camp in the Northern Territory.

The All Stars will be coached by former Sydney Swans champion Michael O'Loughlin, with ex-Fremantle player Roger Hayden and current-day champions Adam Goodes and Shaun Burgoyne as his assistants.

Franklin said he would be proud to lead the team.

"The Indigenous All Stars match is a really important event as it recognises the indigenous Australians' contribution to the national competition," the four-time All Australian said.

"It's a chance for some of the best indigenous talent from across the country to play together."

The All Stars team to take the field will be chosen from among the indigenous camp's attendees, which will include Carlton's Eddie Betts and Chris Yarran, Hawk Cyril Rioli, Sydney Swan Lewis Jetta, and Geelong's Allen Christensen, Mathew Stokes and Travis Varcoe.
