Footy night at the Couch

ALWAYS wondered what footy is all about, but didn’t dare ask? Ask the experts at an information session with the Essendon Football Club! Kai Yi Wong has the details.

Have you ever wondered what that sport was on TV that looked an awful lot like rugby? Or perhaps you have heard team names rattled around by your friends but never knew what the team history was?

Then you should come down for an information session to learn about the national obsession that is footy!

Come join the Essendon Football Club (EFC), The Couch and the City of Melbourne for a night of all things ‘footy’. Find out more about the AFL and why Aussies are completely mad about it, and learn some basic AFL skills (we promise fighting will not be involved). Come dressed in black and red and find out how it feels to be a proper AFL fan!

From handball activities, photos with Skeeta (Essendon’s mascot) and a chance to win some Essendon FC merchandise, it will be a night that will make you fall in love Australia’s top sport.
