2017 Harmony Cup – Sunday April 2

Sunday April 2, 2017

Royal Park North, Park St, Parkville

FREE EVENT

The AFL International Harmony Cup features teams drawn from Melbourne’s many communities. The aim of the event is twofold:

1. to celebrate Melbourne’s ethnic diversity and harmony, and

2. use the power of sport to break down cultural and ethnic barriers. We may come from many different backgrounds but we are all Australians.

The Harmony Cup is an official Harmony Day (Australian Government) event.

In 2017 the Harmony Cup will be held on Sunday 2 April at Royal Park North, Park Street, Parkville (near the zoo). Next year will be the 10th edition of the event. Entry is free and it’s a great day out for the whole family, with lots of footy, food and entertainment.

AFL International is hoping to have over 50 countries represented on the day, with people from each community wearing their footy jumper. It will be a United Nations of footy and will look amazing! They have created these jumpers for Caribbean countries (so far!):

Jumpers are $70 each and you can choose your size and what number you would like on the back. Jumpers can be purchased here.

Let’s set a new World Record for the most number of individual national footy jumpers, so order your jumper and join us at the 2017 Harmony Cup in Melbourne!
