Former AFL great Adam Goodes takes up official football role | Adam Goodes

Adam Goodes has turned to football in an official capacity for the first time with a place on the board of a new advisory council charged with overseeing the development of Indigenous football in Australia.

The AFL great, who has largely shunned Australian rules football since he was forced into retirement from the game in 2015, has a longstanding affection for the round-ball code and has played in a Sydney over-35s park competition in recent years.

Goodes grew up playing football and only switched to Australian rules after he and his family moved to a small country town in Victoria, where there was no junior football club to play for.

He told SBS in 2018 that he always knew he would return to football “because the love for the game has never left me”, and he will now have a chance to shape pathways into the game for young Indigenous people.
