Squads released for the 2018 Chemist Warehouse EJ Whitten Legends Game

The full All Stars and Victorian playing squads have been released for the Chemist Warehouse EJ Whitten Legends Game, set to take place at Adelaide Oval on Friday 31 August, 2018.

The squads combined boast 15,299 games, over 55 All Australian selections, 50 AFL Premierships and three Brownlow Medals.

A number of high profile players will be making their EJ Whitten Legends Game debut including All Australian and five time North Melbourne leading goal kicker, Drew Petrie, and All Australian Premiership Player, Travis Cloke.

“It’s been great playing local footy this year but I’m really looking forward to pulling on the Victorian jumper and playing alongside some AFL legends at the Adelaide Oval,” Cloke said.

“There are quite a few recently retired AFL greats who have put up their hand to play this year, so I think there will be some serious competition on the night.”

A stellar coaching line up will lead both squads, with Malcolm Blight and some South Australian footy heroes, who will be announced closer to the match, moving the magnets for the All Stars and Terry Wallace and Phil Maylin in charge of team Victoria.

Six times All Australian, Brad Johnson, has been named as the Victorian captain and is looking forward to some tough competition from the All Stars.

“With the likes of Chad Cornes, Andrew McLeod, Adam Cooney, Cameron Mooney and Tony Modra lining up for the All Stars, it’s going to be a great game, the Vic’s are coming to win,” Johnson said.


Established in 1995, the EJ Whitten Foundation honours the legacy of the late EJ Whitten, “Mr Football”, who died after a long and public battle with Prostate Cancer.

Since its inception, the EJ Whitten Foundation has raised over $13 million for men’s health awareness programs and prostate cancer research and treatment.

For the 2018 game, The EJ Whitten Foundation will be teaming up with local South Australian charity, The Little Heroes Foundation run by the inaugural Adelaide Football Club captain Chris McDermott. The Little Heroes Foundation supports seriously ill children and their families, by raising funds for essential equipment and services.

The Chemist Warehouse EJ Whitten Legends Game will be broadcast live nationally from 7:30 AEST on Channel 7, 7mate and Fox Footy. Telstra will also stream the match live via the AFL Live App.

Tickets for the Chemist Warehouse EJ Whitten Legends Game are available to purchase via ejwhittenfoundation.com.au/tickets 

Kids under 15 are free and fans are encouraged to purchase tickets online and arrive early, with an anticipated high demand for general admission tickets.

“The Dad Conference”

THE E.J. WHITTEN FOUNDATION PROUDLY SUPPORTS “THE DAD CONFERENCE”.

WHAT’S THE DAD CONFERENCE ALL ABOUT

Dads are awesome. They have the power to dramatically influence those closest to them. Whether it’s their wife or partner, children, other family members or even work colleagues, dads have a way about them that can inspire and motivate people to move and grow.

At ‘The Dad Conference’ we believe that when you mix a room full of dads with highly qualified experts who are willing to share their knowledge in a supportive and open environment, dads and their loved ones can experience incredible and positive change in their lives.

HOW WILL THIS HAPPEN?

On February 25, ‘The Dad Conference’ will be held at Deakin University in Burwood. Six amazing speakers will share their knowledge and understanding of topics that directly affect dads on a daily basis. The dads in the room will be encouraged to take notes, and identify strategies and tips they can plug into their own lives to make positive change a reality for themselves and their loved ones.

Plus, 10% of all profits will be donated to the E.J Whitten Foundation to help with prostate cancer research and awareness, and other men’s health initiatives. Not only will the dads who attend get so much out of the event personally, but they will be actively supporting a charity relative to them.

WHAT DOES ‘THE DAD CONFERENCE’ LOOK LIKE?

The day will kick-off at 10am, and the following six speakers will give 45-minute talks about their topic of expertise:

  • Dr Michael Carr-Gregg is the founder of CanTeen, and one of Australia’s most respected psychologists, specialising in parenting, children and adolescents. He will talk about parenting teenage boys in his presentation called ‘The Prince Boofhead Syndrome’.
  • Craig Harper is one of Australia’s leading presenters in the areas of health, high-performance and personal transformation. He will share his thoughts on how to create a high-performing life.
  • Chris Helder shares his thoughts on belief systems and how they can help you achieve your goals. Chris believes that ‘positive thinking’ is a waste of time, and ‘useful thinking’ is a much better way achieve your goals.

  • Danny ‘Spud’ Frawley, former star St Kilda fullback and Richmond Head Coach, shares his intimate story about battling depression, anxiety and overcoming a nervous breakdown.
  • Jason Cunningham is a business growth and personal finance expert and speaker, and the resident financial guru on Channel Seven’s ‘Living Room’ program. He will show you ‘how to get financially fit.’ 
  • Mark Bunn, former Hawthorn footballer, is one of Australasia’s leading experts on health and personal performance. He’ll share with you the daily habits of healthy high-achieving people.

The knowledge and information dads will take away from these speakers at this event will have an amazing impact on their lives.

EJ Whitten Foundation in the Community

The E.J. Whitten Foundation through its community program “It’s Time To Test” is encouraging everyone to get fit and stay healthy this summer.

The “It’s Time To Test” community program has reached over 144,000 people and is leading the way for better health and a better lifestyle for many men and their families.

We have visited over 500 grass roots clubs, carried out 540 men’s health tests and spent over 113 hours in the community talking to people to ensure they take charge of their health.

The result is that small changes are leading to a healthier and happier life. In some instances, lives are actually being saved through early diagnoses of men’s health issues.

Use the summer-time to take charge of your health.

Get a group of mates together, start a summer fitness campaign and visit your GP for a health check-up and plan.

It’s Time To Test.
