Purple Bombers becomes Essendon FC coterie

We’re proud to announce that we have officially reached coterie status at the Essendon Football Club.

President of The Purple Bombers, Jason Tuazon-McCheyne, said becoming one of the Essendon’s coterie groups would help promote our mission of being leaders of change through creating a safe environment for LGBTIQ supporters and players.

“We are excited about this opportunity and want to be a coterie that can actively contribute to making Essendon the most inclusive club in the AFL,” Tuazon-McCheyne said.

“We love Essendon and exist to help make the AFL a safe place for every fan.”
