SOUTH AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL SPORT TRAINING ACADEMY VISIT
November 25th marks an important occasion for the HK Dragons with an exhibition game to be played placing a selected 2015 representative squad of 20 Dragons up against a visiting team from South Australia. Importantly this visiting team is a group of young indigenous AFL players, from the South Australian Aboriginal Sport Training Academy, who will be not only be visiting Hong Kong but will also be heading to Guangzhou and Beijing. This 10 day trip represents an alignment of two of PAFC’s key community initiatives in Indigenous welfare and support, as well as development of football in China. The trip will be publicised in the media back in Australia with this game as one of the centerpieces, coupled with separate ceremonies with the Consul General of Australia in Hong Kong, and Ambassador of the Commonwealth of Australia to the People’s Republic of China, in Beijing. The match will be played from 4 to 6pm at the HKFC, and this will include an Auskick exhibition at halftime so bring along any family and friends to have a look at potential future AFL players of tomorrow and watch their skills light up Happy Valley!

The FireBreather Q3
The third edition of the newly reformatted FireBreather has now been released. The FireBreather was re-launched at the start of 2015 as a publication connecting and reporting on all things ‘footy’ in Hong Kong. At the end of each quarter the Fire Breather updates some 90,000 Australian Expatriates, as well as those following overseas, on the progress of AFL within this great part of the world. The Hong Kong Dragons are proud to produce the FireBreather in conjunction with our friends from AusKick, The Vikings and Gaelic Association.
