Black armbands have been worn on the field to honour a death in the community for decades. This year, for TAC and AFL Victoria’s Road Safety Round, everyone in the community will wear a new kind of armband. One that will help us band together to eliminate deaths and serious injuries on the road.
Across the 15-17th of July, every AFL Victoria club will run out onto the field for the TAC & AFL Victoria Road Safety Round. But this year, it’s not just the players who will be participating. It’s the entire community. To commemorate their commitment to eliminating deaths and serious injuries on the roads, captains, coaches, players and the surrounding community will wear their support in the form of a blue armband.
These bands will be available at the club, and handed out to anyone who wants to get behind the cause. On every armband lies a QR code containing stories from an ever-growing number of Victorians on why road safety matters to them. Everyone has a reason for wanting safer roads. Wear the band next weekend to show your support. Let’s band together for safer roads.
