After months in planning we officially launched the Purple Bombers on March 30th. Our launch event hosted by Herbert Smith Freehills had a magnificent view of Melbourne including the MCG. We had 150 people including our player representative, Brendon Goddard and Essendon Football Club CEO, Xavier Campbell on hand to celebrate the mission of the Purple Bombers.
Purple Bombers President, Jason Tuazon-McCheyne gave an impassioned speech about his love of the Essendon Football Club, his experiences of homophobia and how the Purple Bombers intends to make change in the AFL.
Brendon Goddard was presented with his Purple Bombers membership. Not a member yet? Join us and support our goals. Memberships start at $39.
