Footy Fan Club

Here’s a free kick for the school holidays: a morning of footy talk and fun at the Wheeler Centre.

Alicia Sometimes and Nicole Hayes are writers, broadcasters and mad football fans. They’re two voices from the cult Outer Sanctum Aussie Rules podcast and the authors of a new book for kids, The Footy Girl’s Guide to the Stars of 2017. The book is a must-read for young footballers, profiling some of the brightest stars in the new Women’s League.

They’ll be joined by Collingwood recruit Emma King who, at 22, is one of the club’s leading stars, a member of the AFL Players’ Association Women’s Advisory Committee – and, outside the game, a qualified architect.

What were the weirdest facts Alicia and Nicole learned when interviewing the players? Which female footballers will be the legends of the future? What’s it like to play in the Women’s League, and what were some of the best plays of its first season?

Sporty kids of all ages are welcome for this free hour of footy fandom.

Date:   Tuesday 4 April

Time:   11:00am

Venue: The Wheeler Centre, 176 Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne, VIC 3000
