TAC and AFL Victoria Road Safety Round: Postponed


19 JUL 2021

In 2021, Over 1200 football and netball clubs across metro and regional Victoria will band together to support a new initiative for the TAC and AFL Victoria Road Safety Round. Originally to be held over July 16th to 18th, this Round will now be held as soon as community sport returns to the state.

More than 400,000 Victorian football and netball players, coaches and supporters will don a new-look blue armband, to show their commitment to road safety and eliminating deaths and serious injuries on our roads.

They will also help mark the 30th year of partnership between the TAC and AFL Victoria and the continued efforts and need to share this important message.

AFL Victoria is encouraging every community member, club, league and region not just to wear the band but continue to share their own reason for wearing the band and wanting safer roads through #tacbandtogether or visiting tac.vic.gov.au/bandtogether.

Every video shared will go towards your local club’s application to the TAC Club Rewards Program, where clubs can earn up to $10,000 for spreading the message of road safety through the community. Hand out as many armbands as possible and collect as many reasons as possible.

Some examples include:

Frankston Dolphins FNC

Burnside Heights

 

Darcey Vescio, Carlton Football Club

Upwey-Tecoma Football Netball Club

Over 700,000 bands are being distributed to every club across the state, so when footy is back, make sure to grab yours and we will band together for safer roads.
