The Nicky Winmar Carnival was originally created to provide young Aboriginal youth with another platform to enter the WA Football talent pathway. The carnival targets disengaged players with the aim of getting them back into the football system at club level and in development squads.

This year the Nicky Winmar Cup will be held on Sunday March 6th at Bendigo Bank Stadium, Mandurah.

The Nicky Winmar Carnival provides participants with a direct opportunity to:

  • Participate in a structured WA football marquee event
  • Re-engage with educational and sport participation programs
  • Connect with AFL/WAFL mentors and role models
  • Potentially be identified for WAFL development pathways
  • Represent the state through selection into the AFLs National KickStart Championship

The overall goal of the carnival is to increase the amount of Aboriginal youth playing at community club level and representing their WAFL Zones in development squads.

The Nicky Winmar Carnival is played in a round robin format over one day. Competing teams are based on WAFL metro and regional zones. All teams are coached by Aboriginal coaches.
