Australia Post Multicultural Team of Champions

General News

The AFL today announced the Australian multicultural Team of Champions initial squad list of 50 (see table below). To be eligible to be selected the players must either have been born overseas or had at least one parent born overseas.

Jock McHale has already been named coach and Alex Jesaulenko has been named as captain. AFL General Manager National and International Development Andrew Dillon stressed those selected were based on available information and will accept other nominations should other eligible players come to light.  "The AFL will also ask the WAFL and SANFL to put forward its nominations for players who should be considered for selection.  Many records pre-dating 1930 are incomplete and we will welcome any further nominations from the public who can confirm any player heritage from the early years of our game that we may not have been able to confirm."
