EJ Whitten Legends Game

The Legends Game

Broadcast Partners

The E.J. Whitten Legends Game is our major annual event which brings together a selection of football greats, celebrities and media personalities to play 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 new home at Etihad Stadium, where it has been since 2003. Victoria leads the win-loss ledger at 10 – 9, with one draw.

2016 represents our first year with new broadcast partners Channel 7, Foxtel/Fox Footy and Telstra, the host broadcasters of the AFL Premiership season , and is sure to be a blockbuster. This partnership will provide us with the ability to incorporate a closer AFL flavour and more talent into the line-ups. As the 4th highest TV audience AFL match each year, the Legends Game is a brilliant showcase for our cause and to push our key men’s health messages.
