Coordinated by the Essendon Football Club and Cricket Victoria, GLoBALL enables international students and new migrants to interact with the broader Victorian community through Australian Rules Football and cricket related activities.

GLoBALL is proudly supported by the State Government of Victoria and Red Energy, partnering to promote a sense of belonging, social inclusion and celebrate diversity for newly arrived migrants and students.

GLoBALL provides opportunities for international students and new migrants to interact with EFC members, staff and players.

Founding supporters of GLoBALL are RMIT, The City of Melbourne and the Australian Federation of International Students and the list of supporting organisations keeps growing.

Through the course of the program, approximately 12,000 international students and new migrants from across Victoria were reached through various football and cricket initiatives.
