A new 60 second advertisement for the newly established AFL Womens’ competition was leaked by reddit user MrBaconPie on Saturday ahead of the league’s inaugural season.
The commercial features various Australian female athletes and advocates such as Melbourne Cup winner Michelle Payne, Olympian Cathy Freeman and SBS news journalist Lee Lee Chin.
Paying homage to a similar advertisement used by the AFL in the lead up to the 1994 and 1996 seasons, which featured athletes Hakeem Olajuwon, Carl Lewis and John McEnroe among others, the 2017 instalment is again played to the tune of EMF’s You’re Unbelievable.
The AFL Womens’ competition begins on February 3 when Collingwood host Carlton at Olympic Park Oval. The season runs from February until the last weekend in March, where the Grand Final will be held on March 25, coinciding with Round 1 of the new AFL season.
