EJ Witten Legends Game captains revealed

Former Brisbane champion Jonathan Brown will captain Victoria in this year’s EJ Whitten legends Game, while former Tiger Matthew Richardson will captain the All Stars.

The game, which has a new sponsor this year, will be called The EJ Whitten Legends Game and will be held at Etihad Stadium on Friday September 2nd.

The game will be broadcast on Channel Seven for the first time, after it was revealed last year that only six per cent of donations from the match were in fact going to prostate cancer research.

The All stars won last year’s match by 24 points in front of 26,309 fans at Etihad Stadium.

Victoria lead the head to head 10-9, with one one draw.
