Indigenous Football Week 2017 (28/3/17 to 2/4/17) is about the power of football to create change for good, while delivering a standout talent pipeline to the game. The partnership of JMF, Football Federation Australia, Professional Footballers Australia, SBS and Fox Sports, will use Indigenous Football Week 2017 to highlight the achievements of Indigenous players past and present, as well as the next generation of incredible talent.

Jada Whyman (Year 12), interviewed for Fox Sports Football before the kick off of the March 28th Socceroos World Cup Qualifying game, spoke at length about Indigenous football and what her culture means to her.
