#2249 ... ANZAC AFL
Alan Richardson, Head Coach of the St Kilda AFL team being interviewed by Jason Pine on Newstalk ZB at the Portlander Bar & Grill in the Rydges Hotel this morning.
AFL action returns to Wellington in 2014 as the St Kilda Saints take on the Brisbane Lions, on Anzac Day.
On April 25th, 2013 St Kilda played the Sydney Swans in Wellington New Zealand in the first regular season game of Australian rules football played outside Australia. 22,546 people attended this historic match that combined to be an incredible mix of culture, sport and entertainment. The St Kilda Football Club will in 2014 celebrate its 141st year of existence. As a foundation club of the AFL, one of the oldest sporting competitions in the world, the Saints have a long and proud history. Born in the iconic Victorian suburb of St Kilda, the Saints have long been regarded as the beachside club of the south. As a sporting organisation, St Kilda aspire to be more than just a football club.
