As well as being a great celebration of Australian Football, the Harmony Cup is a powerful vehicle for bringing communities together.

AFI strongly believes that Australian Football and other sports have a powerful role to play in the current world climate. Sport has a profile that cuts across all cultural and ethnic barriers.

Today, more than ever before, sport is central to human society. It has the capacity to build international relationships, enabling us all to meet on truly level playing fields. On a basis of common understanding and friendly competition, sport can go a long way towards reducing divisions and mistrust.
