For the fifth time in AFLW history, the Western Bulldogs and Carlton will go head-to-head in the annual Pride Game when they meet on Sunday afternoon.

The game recognises and supports the LGBTIQA+ community by celebrating inclusiveness and gender diversity, and welcoming all people, no matter their sexual orientation.

Since its inception in 2018, the Bulldogs and Blues have celebrated Pride every season – with St Kilda and Melbourne joining in 2020 – before being extended to a league-wide Pride Round last year.

As a way of marking the occasion, each team also wears specially-designed Pride guernseys, the 50m arc is transformed into rainbow stripes, and the two sides typically run through a joint banner prior to the first bounce.

The Bulldogs will launch their 2022 Pride guernsey this week.
