Indigenous Round 2024

Indigenous Round 2024

The NRL, through its Reconciliation Action Plan, is committed to greater promotion and opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples within the Game.

A major example of this commitment in action is the NRL Indigenous Round.

NRL Indigenous Round is taking place in Round 12 (May 23 - May 26), aims to highlight significant social issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It is also an opportunity for the game to cement our commitment to the Indigenous community and celebrate the unique relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and rugby league.

This year’s Indigenous Round is prior to National Reconciliation Week (27th May – 3rd June). National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. The 2024 National Reconciliation Week theme is Now More Than ever. The theme is a reminder that no matter what, the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people must continue. 

Indigenous Round Launch

This year Indigenous Round was launched on the beautiful lands of the Bidjigal people at South Maroubra Beach.
