The NRL Harvey Norman All-Stars men’s and women’s jerseys have been revealed, with four unique designs emblazoned across each jersey which will proudly be displayed when the teams take to the field on 15 February at AAMI Park in Melbourne.
NRL Senior Manager of Indigenous Strategy, Mark Deweerd said the jerseys had been meticulously designed by artists from local communities in Australia and New Zealand.
“The All Stars matches provide a fantastic opportunity to learn about and celebrate cultures amongst Indigenous and non-Indigenous players and fans,” Mr Deweerd said.
“Each of the artists has delivered striking designs and I know that every player wearing one of the four jerseys will do so with pride, knowing they are representing their family and heritage.”
The 2019 Indigenous All Stars men’s and women’s jerseys are sponsored by the KARI Foundation, an Aboriginal run organisation delivering programs and initiatives the build strength in Aboriginal community, families and services.
KARI Chief Executive, Casey Ralph said it was clear than an incredible amount of time and effort had gone into the designs of all four jerseys and was proud to be a partner of the Indigenous jerseys.
“KARI pride themselves on celebrating and growing awareness for the positive achievements of Indigenous Australia and there’s no doubt that achievement and a celebration of culture will be on display when the All Stars matches are played next year,” Miss Ralph said.
