PORT ADELAIDE supporters will have the opportunity to march to Round 1 this Sunday, March 17 with a global symbol of human rights, Little Amal.

The giant 3.5 metre puppet of a 10-year-old Syrian refugee girl will cross the Torrens at 2.30pm, donning a bespoke Port Adelaide scarf and flanked by flags, drummers, and thousands of True Believers, as part of the club’s collaboration with the Adelaide Festival.

After initially commencing her journey in 2021 walking from the Syria-Türkiye border to the United Kingdom, Little Amal has since travelled to 15 countries, been welcomed by two million people on the street, and connected with tens of millions online.

In Australia for the first time, the company behind Little Amal were initially drawn to Port Adelaide’s not-for-profit organisation, Power Community Limited’s (PCL) Multicultural Power Cup, and the natural synergy to the values of the program, and what Little Amal represents.

The Multicultural Power Cup celebrates cultural diversity and expression, promotes inclusion, and builds social cohesion by recognising the positive contribution of different cultures within Australia.

Tickets for our Round 1 clash are still available.

Walk with Amal as she crosses the Torrens to Adelaide Oval for our first home game of the season.

Time: Sunday, 17th March at 2.30pm
Location: Meet at the city end of the Adelaide Riverbank Pedestrian Bridge.
