CARLTON RESPECTS:

Sunday’s match against the Western Bulldogs marks the Blues’ annual CARLTON RESPECTS game.

Supported by Our Watch, CARLTON RESPECTS was developed in 2016 to educate students about respect and equality using the platform of football.

Against the Bulldogs, the Blues will wear orange socks in support of this important campaign to create public conversation and take action in relation to gender equality for the prevention of violence against women.  

Members and supporters are invited to pledge their support for respect and equality by signing their name on the Club’s orange 3D monogram located on the concourse between Gates 3 and 4.

A number of supporter bays at the MCG will also be filled with orange t-shirts, with all fans encouraged to wear some form of orange to the game.
