The AFLW's Indigenous Round is upon us, set to be held over both Rounds 3 and 4 in season seven, running from September 9 to September 18.

This marks the first AFLW Indigenous Round as an eighteen team competition, with four teams in Essendon, Hawthorn, Sydney and Port Adelaide set to unveil their inaugural designs.

Check out every club's design down below, updated as they are announced.


The Crows' season seven Indigenous jersey is the same as that worn by both the AFL and SANFL teams this year, designed by Eastern Arrernte man Pat Caruso.

The jersey design highlights the coming together of the men's and women's programs, symbolised by a crow sitting in the centre, with both male and female symbols adorning it.

“It's an exciting time at the moment with four new teams and 120 new players that have entered the competition,” Adelaide's Danielle Ponter said.

“There's more opportunities now for young, Indigenous girls to get on (AFLW) lists, share their culture and show the AFL community what they have."


Premiership Lion Courtney Hodder was tasked with designing Brisbane's Indigenous jumper for season seven, letting new beginnings at the club inspire her design as the Lions move to a new home base shared between the men's and women's teams.

The Lions' jersey, which will be worn in Round 3's match against Gold Coast, includes a tribute to families, members and fans, as well as trees representing the foundation of the club.

"The inspiration came from our new facility out at Springfield,” Hodder said. 

“It's such a new step for the Club and a huge journey. It's taken the girls a long time from the start to get to here and I was lucky enough for it to happen within two years of me being here."


The Blues have announced their Indigenous jumper ahead of Round 3's clash against Port Adelaide at Ikon Park.

The artwork featured on the jersey is similar to that of season six, with the navy tones made more relevant by 18-year-old Indigenous artist Brooke Sutton.

The artwork, featuring a large community symbol, is designed to represent the club, players and supporters.









Gold Coast 


GWS Giants 






North Melbourne 


Port Adelaide

The Power have unveiled their first ever AFLW Indigenous jumper, designed by Jakirah and Tikana Telfer.

The jersey, named Kari Karra (emu in the sky), celebrates the theme of ‘celebrating our journey, past, present and emerging', with the Power set to host their Indigenous Round celebrations during their Round 4 home clash against Sydney.

“To be part of this cultural sharing, this cultural cleansing and to wear the guernseys for the first time, it was more than a special moment for me,” Power player Gemma Houghton said to club media.

“To be connected and present in the moment, and to hear the story of the guernsey from the young women was incredibly moving."


The Tigers have unveiled their third Indigenous jersey, designed by Indigenous artist Josie Atkinson. Richmond are set to wear the design in Round 3 and Round 4, which will be the AFLW's first Dreamtime match.

The design was made in consultation with Gabby Seymour, Maddy Brancatisano, and Ellie McKenzie and represents turning points and a time of change.

“This guernsey represents a time of change for us as a football club,” Tiger Gabby Seymour said.

“It is incredibly exciting to have our first Indigenous player in Steph Williams join us; she is someone that teaches us so much and that you want to be able to follow and learn off.

St Kilda 

The Saints have unveiled their new Indigenous guernsey, designed by Kirrae and Peek Wurrong artist Bayley Mifsud.

The design represents the club's connection to the land and the Indigenous playing group, across both the men's and women's programs.

“Aboriginal art is about the telling of our history and heritage. Throughout most of my art, the relationship between the people and the land are key features,” Mifsud said.

“As Aboriginal people, we have a very strong spiritual connection to Country, so when designing the guernsey I wanted to connect people to the Lands of the Bunurong, the spiritual home ground of the Saints."

In addition to wearing the jumper in Indigenous Round, the club will use the design as its clash strip for the remainder of season seven.


Sydney's inaugural Indigenous jersey was designed by Lisa Sansbury, mother of legendary Swan Adam Goodes. The jersey, which will be worn in the Marn Grook match against GWS in Round 3, depicts meeting places, the sea, and Sydney Harbour.

The design was originally worn by the men's team in 2014.

West Coast


Western Bulldogs

The Bulldogs have unveiled their season seven Indigenous jumper, designed by former development coach Kirby Bentley.

The jersey represents 'connection, support and empowerment' though the use of different symbols, with four prominent brown mounds on the jumper's front representing the Bulldogs' four-woman leadership group.

The club will wear their Indigenous jersey across both Rounds 3 and 4.
