The Pride March to Pride Match is back, Ballarat style!

This is a community march celebrating LGBTQIA+ pride and community inclusion, from Selkirk Oval to Mars Stadium for AFLW Pride Round.

Every year, the Western Bulldogs host the AFLW Pride Match, a day that recognises the LGBTIQA+ Community’s contribution to the game. From local footy players, to volunteers, to loyal fans, to professional players, the LGBTIQA+ Community has given so much to growing women’s footy.
