More than just a game…

The EJ Whitten Legends match is more than just celebrating legends of the game. It’s about raising awareness and funds for men’s health as well as supporting the ongoing work Little Heroes Foundation is doing in the South Australian community.

2018 will also be the first time since 1999 the All Stars will be considered the ‘home’ side so we want to see as many SA footy fans down at Adelaide Oval to show  support for not only some legends of the game, but also the two important causes - the EJ Whitten Foundation and Little Heroes Foundation!
