Sir Doug Nicholls Round
SATURDAY will see Narrm host Fremantle on Wurundjeri Land (MCG) in the second weekend of the Sir Doug Nicholls Round.
The two-week round honours and celebrates Australia's Indigenous history, while also creating important conversations among the AFL and wider communities.
Narrm will run out in its 2022 Indigenous guernsey, designed by Wurundjeri/Dja Dja Wurrung artist Ky-ya Nicholson Ward.
Introducing Narrm Football Club
For the duration of Sir Doug Nicholls Round, the Demons will be rebranded as the Narrm Football Club.
Narrm is the Aboriginal name for Melbourne which comes from the Woi Wurrung language, spoken by the traditional owners of the city and its surrounds.
The club consulted with Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation who have provided invaluable knowledge and permission for the club to use the Woi Wurrung word and bring the initiative to life.
As the name ‘Narrm’ is being translated from oral language, there are several variations of the spelling. Narrm, Naarm and Nairm are all commonly used and accepted.
The Narrm name and logo will be seen across all of the club’s digital touch points including the website, social media platforms and broadcast references on match day.
