ALL the South Coast's bushfire affected communities will firmly be in the sights of all the AFL's stars during this Friday night's State of Origin match. As it was revealed on Wednesday the AFL has produced a custom-made Sherrin for the Victoria vs All-Stars bushfire relief clash at Marvel Stadium. The Sherrin will be orange, just like the colour worn by State Emergency Service workers. Each footy will also feature the names of clubs from 230 towns ravaged by bushfires, including the Batemans Bay Seahawks, Bay and Basin Bombers, Bega Bombers, Bermagui Breakers, Bomaderry Tigers, Broulee/Moruya Giants, Eden Whalers, Merimbula Diggers, Narooma Lions, Nowra/Albatross Vikings, Pambula Panthers, Shoalhaven Giants, Tathra Sea Eagles and Ulladulla Dockers - each of week have received a $5000 cheque from the AFL to assist with getting their clubs up and running for their 2020 season. All proceeds from the fixture, as well as the AFLW curtain-raiser between Collingwood and Melbourne, will go to the assisting those bushfire affected communities - with the AFL already committing to donating $2.5 million to the cause. "Our industry is heartbroken by the devastation that the fires are causing around the country and our clubs and players have suggested a number of initiatives where we can support affected communities in the short and longer term as they deal with the aftermath of these fires," AFL chief executive officer Gillon McLachlan said in a statement. "A game of footy can't change what has happened but it is a way for all of our clubs, our players and our fans to acknowledge the incredible sacrifice that so many have made in battling the fires and to support those communities that have been impacted by the bushfires. "We know that those communities are suffering now but they are also going to need our support as they start to rebuild. "Sport builds bonds within communities and we want people to know they have the support of the entire football industry and that we will be there to help them rebuild facilities and programs and ensure people continue to come together. On top of having the club's names on the custom-made footballs, a number of South Coast individuals have been invited to be a part of the fixture. AFL NSW/ACT is flying 10 people - eight from the South Coast - down to Melbourne for both the official function and match. Those eight South Coast representatives are Batemans Bay's Arlo, Bec, Sullivan and Harper Ireland, Heath and Jaimie Petterwood, Eden's Nicole Crowe and Sapphire Coast umpire Dave Boulton. AFL South Coast is also sending a bus down to Melbourne for the event, which includes 14 Auskick players (and their parents) from clubs such as Bay and Basin, Merimbula, Eden, Bermagui and Bega - who will all play at half-time of the State of Origin clash. "The State of Origin game will help raise further funds to support that ongoing rebuild. "I want to thank our players and clubs for their commitment to doing something substantial that raises money and clearly demonstrates the support to the local football communities of those areas impacted. "Our clubs and our AFL and AFLW players are also working on a number of other initiatives to raise money and to support those communities in need and we will continue to work with them over the coming weeks and months to continue to coordinate our efforts." Friday's State of Origin match - the first of its kind since 2008 - will feature Sydney Swans' Callum Mills and Jake Lloyd, who recently visited the South Coast as part of their AFL Community Camp. First bounce of the Victoria vs All-Stars clash is at 7.50pm.
