Football can play a role in bringing communities together, having a positive social and cultural impact, providing positive role models and increase awareness and connections between community organisations and football community- it can help build more inclusive, healthier, happier, and safer communities.

It is good practice for clubs to acknowledge and promote dates of significance where possible within their community events and match days to help reach a greater cross-section of the community.

Football Australia has endeavored to acknowledge the many special days within the document below but they know that there are many others that may have missed.

If you believe there is a special holiday, festival, cause, religious day, etc that needs to be added, please contact
