AFL legend Michael Long will lead the walk, as part of the BBL’s First Nations Round, beginning at Hub Park and include a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony and a cultural performance. The Little Long Walk will then leave Hub Park and ‘Walk’ with Longy to Marvel Stadium.
A limited number of people will have the opportunity to ‘Walk’ with Longy onto the ground, sit in a dedicated bay of seats for the match and have a front row view of pre-match activity, including a live performance from Baker Boy.

He will be performing live from 6:50PM pre-game before the action starts.
The ‘Gades Arcade will be on show once again, with the epic family entertainment zone offering a new dimension for families at the BBL.
