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

Hear from Western Bulldogs legend and FOX Footy’s Brad Johnson and Hawk premiership star and Channel Seven’s Campbell Brown on the day.  Be entertained by Sam Kekovich and Bob THE CAT Bevan always a big hit at EJ Whitten Foundation events.

Special appearance from the 2018 Premiership Cup, who will win this year?  Will the Tigers go back to back?  Can the Eagle take it West?  Will the Pies shock everyone?  Can Gaz lift the Cats?  Could the Dees complete a fairytale?  Can Roughy help the Hawks to life the cup again?  Will the Swans be the last team standing?  Can Port Power win on the final day of the season?  

The lunch has become renowned as a must attend event during grand final week and 2017 was one of the best. Not only was it an entertaining day but it was also a great success in terms of spreading the men’s health message and raising funds for prostate cancer research and treatment. Monash University was our chosen partner on the day and much of the proceeds from the day will go towards the research Monash University is undertaking into prostate cancer.
