For the first time ever a match of Australian Rules Football will be played in Dubrovnik! As part of the “Trece Uho” festival a game of Australian Rules Football will be played on Saturday the 12th of March at 2pm on the football field in Kupari. When the Ploče Eagles and the Barbarians run out onto the pitch in Kupari at 2pm this year’s festival will officially open.
Every year the“Trece Uho” festival highlights the traditions, cultures, art and diversities of a different country, and this year is the time for Australia. “The history of this young, successful and multicultural country can bring us wisdom from which we want to learn,” commented the organisers of the festival.
The main events will be held in November this year, however in an attempt to spread the whole project throughout the year other events, such as the Australian Rules Football game, will also be held.
This Saturday will be a unique opportunity to see a sport that has never been played in Dubrovnik. The game starts at 2pm and entrance is free of charge. You will also have a chance to hang out with the players after the game, and maybe try it for yourselves.
